I am hard[ly] at work on my Recession Wreath (can I trademark that, Cheri?) and its adjunct, the Recession Tree.
But they may not be ready in time for Jen's Holiday Home Tour. Heck, the rest of my house may not even be ready. Some of you wonderful overachievers may be decorated already, but since my husband's birthday is the 17th, we are in birthday mode till then. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it. (And no, the cake is not planned yet.)
But I am working on the Christmas. It doesn't help that I am the only one decorating the tree (the real tree, not the Recession Tree). Ernest hung one ornament, after this exchange.
Would you please put something on the tree?
Maybe this weekend...
What's your favorite ornament?
I like the Cheshire Cat.
So go hang it.
I'll do it on the weekend.
[Mom digs in the box.]
Here. Do it now.
I swear, would holidays even happen if I weren't around????
