Title: Need to get my but in gear
Post by: Pinkbirdy on December 10, 2014, 04:29:51 pm
Christmas is close  :hair:  Last weekend was Portia and a Christmas concert. I have a lot of gifts in the trunk of my car Ive been collecting . Have no clue what I have  :headhammer: Im not this behind . I have the tree to do. Elise is having a fit because we put birds where it always goes . I said lets just decorate one of the cages  :hehe: and put the presents under it.I make peppermint bark . So I need to get on the ball [maybe this weekend]. What is everyone else doing?

I am also very behind  on Christmas this year due to all the work I am doing on the house! I thought I would be a bit straighter by the time Christmas came, but, due to lots of setbacks this is not the case  :cry1: I usually put lots of decorations and lights up but this year it is just the tree. This I done last Saturday. I have only just bought the presents!! I normally have them bought and wrapped by end of November  :Oh:

It will be just a quiet christmas this year with my family and of course, I will have the best present of all which is Opie  :tree:

LOL, Terri, good idea on decorating the cage instead of having a tree  :pink:

I feel for ya' Terri!!  :2funny2: I can remember those days way back in the dark ages when I actually celebrated Christmas and had reasons to rush around & get nowhere fast.  :dmblaf: If you decorate that cage I definitely want to see a photo of it!!  :okay: (http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab352/Mikkwa/Smileys/snowflake1_zpscazcdn5m.gif)

Wendy, Opie will be the best thing you can decorated when he gets home in a couple of days. Wished I could be there to see him. I can't even keep up with ya as you head out to pick him up & then how Codie takes it when he gets in the house.  :cry: I go back to work Saturday and will be taking my nap.  :cry1: I will have to find time to see all the photos you add til I'm off again next Wed.  :sadboy3:

Well since I don't have any folks come over during holidays and no family to share it with. I don't decorate for Christmas anymore, not even a tree up except on occasion when i am in a happier mood. Usually it just reminds me of all the many lonely Christmases my Mom & I had when I was a child and my much older siblings lived too far away to come in for holidays. Now it is the same thing with just Jerry & me since our son Jory lives so far away. He is not much on talking on the phone, so I rarely even get a call for holidays either.  :hmm:

I don't buy gifts for us, we get what we want all year long. There's no reason to waste extra money for gifts on a certain day. The only gifts I buy are the ones for my internet family meaning the Secret Santa and things like that!  :hugu: To me it is just another day on the calendar and actually we will be getting off work for our 4 Christmas morning. That means I will be sleeping most of the day anyway.

Ya'll all have a very Merry Christmas from Jerry & Me and enjoy it a little for Jerry and me too!!  (http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab352/Mikkwa/Smileys/treelit_zps2u03faqv.gif) (http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab352/Mikkwa/Smileys/rudolph_zpsyevwdpmn.gif)

Oh bless you de, I'd put up your tree and cheer up  :heart:

For about the fourth or fifth year running it will be just me, Tony and Jasper as no one visits and we don't get invited anywhere anymore, think because Tony can be so grumpy (I put most of it down to his illnesses and frustration) and will wander off to bed around dinner time, so I end up eating my dinner with Jasper and Tony has his later x

I've actually bought all my presents, and locally too. I didn't even go out of town this year. They just need wrapping up and cards writing out now. Going to my mums a couple of days before to take hers, my brothers and my uncles presents, as buses stop on Christmas eve, she lives 13 miles away. I'd love to stay over but I'd have to stay until after boxing day because of buses, but never mind :)
