Linked up at Mis Papelicos Blog for Share-in-Style: Christmas
The dark cloud has finally been lifted from the Ramsey household. The fevers are gone. The congestion is clearing up. The kidneys are healing and I've declared my overheating laptop to be dead... er, rather dead to me.
I'm mad at it. We're not speaking right now. We might get a divorce.
I've already moved on and starting seeing a younger, sexier computer.
These days I'm enjoying finally being financially stable enough to do Christmas as we please. This is me and the husband's third married Christmas and for the first time, there is a tree, decorations and presents.
Our first Christmas, we were so broke that I drew a Christmas tree on a piece of paper, put it in a frame and set it on a small table with a bundle of stringed lights I found.
Back in those days, the fridge didn't work. The stove would electrocute you (happened to me twice) and the lights were often shut off because we couldn't pay our electric bill.
But we were ok with our situation and knew that things would get better. And they have!!
I'm also enjoying being cute... and having my hair pulled back so that I look like a sweet little... onion.
My head looks like an onion.
A strange long onion...
Ok, that's not very cute.
I'm enjoying our simple Christmas tree, a thrifty sheet music and brown paper wrapped presents. Yeah, you've all seen it before but look! More presents!!
This will be River's first Christmas so we're making it special by having him "give" presents as well.
Not everyone uses Facebook, or has fancy phones to receive photos, so I took the "old fashioned" route and had photos of him with family members printed off.
He decorated the envelopes himself...
Well folks. That's it for now. Time for me to neglect my Saturday housework by getting caught up on my blog reading. Have a good weekend and always be nice to zoo keepers.
