I'm just curious if anyone is planning on decorating early?
I am - today I am taking down my Fall decorations to decorate for Christmas. I hate to rush the seasons, usually after Halloween I take down the Halloween-ish Fall decorations but I leave up my Fall decorations (I decorate more for Fall than Halloween, because I do leave the stuff up until right after Thanksgiving).
But, this year, since my due date is 2 days after Thanksgiving, I've decided to take everything down early (considering our Governor postponed Halloween & Trick-or-Treating until November 5, I left everything up until now, unfortuntely I only got 2 sets of trick-or-treaters!!!)...
Last night DH pulled all the boxes down from the attick and I woke up this morning at 5:00am and I took down all the Fall decorations, and I dusted!... Then i went back to bed, now I'm just having my usual day until I decide to put out all the Christmas decoratons - and of course blast my Christmas music! Aside from this making sure it's all done for when baby comes home (especially because I don't know what i'll feel like AFTER baby is born), it'll give me something to do today. DH has to do some of it though, i'm just no good at hanging lights in the windows so he'll do that when he comes home from work - and then this weekend he will put the tree up, and i will decorate it maybe next week. Unfortunately we do artificial tree... All my life living at home with my parens i got a real tree but for DH and I it's just been easier to get fake one, maybe one day we'll go back to a real one. we have a deal worked out where he sets it up (because i claim to not know how to LOL) and i decorate because he hates putting the balls and all all over it! Normally its a lot more fun to do it with him when he's home, but with me being home and bored it just makes more sense to do it this way.
We're supposed to get with with another storm here today - high winds, rain, and maybe even snow - not as bad as the hurricane that just hit but it is of concern to some parts of the state (mainly the shore area which i am not in), but i still don't plan on leaving the house in it so thats another good reason for me to decorate today. i moved my dr. appt from tomorrow to yesterday, no new progress - just a "very short cervix", no dilation.
so thats it for now! going to start my day, put my christmas music on, drink hot chocolate and decorate!
