I am well aware of my blog issues! I am the kind of person that gets really excited about something and then once the initial excitement fades for me, I like to take a long break. I partly blame it on not having any kids yet. Most blogs seem to be mainly about your kids so that will be my excuse. Well, I am a Christmas lover! But this past few weeks have been so crazy busy for Brett and I, I feel like I am missing out on the whole Christmas spirit and fun things you do at Christmas time. Any one who knows me at all, knows that I am crazy about Christmas! Most people share this love with me, however, my very own husband is not one of them. I know, it's crazy, I guess I was just so in love with him when we were dating that it didn't seem to bother me much that he was a Scrooge. (spelling?) Pretty much he just doesn't like all the comercialism and how everyone seems to magically be nice and caring and happy for 1 month out of the year. For those of you who aren't aware, Brett can't smell or taste. He had a surgery on his back when he was younger and was told by the anesthesialogist that it might effect his senses for a few months. Well 10 years later he still can't smell or taste a thing. So Brett doesn't get to enjoy all the wonderful smells and tasty treats at Christmas time like the rest of us do, and that plays a big part for me! So when we were getting our Christmas decorations down so I could start putting everything up, Brett suggested we not put up a tree at all this year. Can you believe the nerve to say something that outragous to me, the Christmas lover herself?!?! I assured him I would be putting up a tree and he was crazy for suggesting otherwise! Well, now we have about a week before Christmasm which we will be out of town for and I just informed Brett that it is time to put the tree back where it came from because I'm not putting it up to enjoy it for 1 week. I suppose I will just make up for it by eating extra Christmas candy, listening to more Christmas music and be happy for the time I saved by not putting up and having to take it down.
