Christmas cheer?? Not here!

"Tis the season to be Jolly"..........tis it heck.

Today our Christmas Advent Activity was to get the trees up and start decorating. I had visions of laughter and Christmas music and all things merry....HA. The toddler was in a foul mood all day, the husband wasn't much better and we generally spent the day dealing with the toddler and bickering with each other. We couldn't agree on the tree. We couldn't agree what room to put the tree in. We couldn't agree where in the room the tree should go. The toddler threw the decorations around, had more tantrums and so the day went on.

In conclusion, it was a crappy day. We got the main tree up but its not decorated yet and neither is the house. We now have boxes everywhere having brought all the Christmas stuff in from the garage...which also has boxes everywhere as we haven't finished unpacking from the move.

Now, with the toddler in bed and the baby fairly settled, we are having some mulled wine; the one good thing to come out of the day.

Gotta laugh! "Its the most wonderful time of the year" hahahahahahaha

Awww I know that one. This year I am sending the husband Scrooge out and I am going to turn the music on LOUD so I can't hear anything else lol. x

Sounds familiar, lol. I think every thing can get so stressful this time of year trying to do what you think should be done.. I hate this last run up to Christmas worrying that the girls will have enough to open, goodness, it never stops! one is 29 this year the other two 24 and 17, so you can see it never gets any easier, lol.

Just relax and have fun :-)

When it comes to the tree, hubby gets it out of the loft and then when he goes to work I decorate - we've learned these things along the way lol!

Sounds typical for the Christmas season here...except for the bickering with the hubby. lol The kids drive me up the wall when it's time to decorate the house. Each time I swear to myself I won't attempt to decorate when they are home the next year. ROFLMBO!

I believe this year that will be the case. I'm trying to get DH to bring all the decorations down for me on his day off so I can do the bulk of decorating before the kids get home. I'm even hoping that if I'm not finished he'll go pick them up from school. lol I don't think I'll hold my breath on that one though. Hope things are better for you all today.

Oh I hear your pain! My girls have been little horrors lately and my Christmas cheer is slowly diminishing. I am not feeling very generous in the Christmas department at the moment and have already threatened no Christmas this year.

I am glad they all settled down eventually.
