Yesterday I spent part of the day helping Mom out putting up the Christmas tree, we struggled at first. It was more so getting the lights to work since I didn’t pay any attention to things when I put it together which later resulted in me kicking myself but it was quickly fixed by my brother who stopped in to grab a few things. This was the first time in a long long time that I helped Mom do the Christmas tree normally I stay away from that sort of thing.. Actually the last time I helped was I think was longer than twelve years ago when Dad was still around but at times that more so felt forced than anything else.
At times I wonder why we put up the tree but Mom does seem to be more in the Christmas spirit this year which is kind of odd to see. Since I know the last countless Christmas’s have been kinda drab and mostly she would have music going when she knew someone was coming over… Although when we finished Mom decided to nominate me to setup the nativity scene so I asked her “Can I Mr. Bean it” she told me “No” … Clearly Mom is no fun.. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about allow me to show you with the magic power of youtube:
Now someone I know… (no names shall be mentioned) thought I should wear a Santa hat when putting up the tree with Mom, but of course the same person thinks that I should wear a Santa hat when it’s just me and her… But on a completely different part of my body (hint: a completely different head) … yea you get it, I know you do. For those who are wondering this hasn’t happened I doubt it will happen.
Before I started my Christmas shopping I started to ask people what they wanted for Christmas, at first things seemed all fine and everything was all reasonable, until I asked that same person who had a certain suggestion about a Santa hat… She told me she wanted a bow but this bow must be strategically placed on me… (think about it, I’m sure you can figure this one out for yourself) I honestly don’t think that’s going to happen either.
But to be honest I’ve been wrong before and who knows she might get her Santa hat and Christmas gift at some point in time, I honestly can’t say one way or the other because one never knows what may happen in the future.
Well that’s all I got for today.
