Hurry up Holidays!

I really want to put up the Christmas tree. It's fairly cold down here in Houston right now (34 degrees is what's forecast for tonight!), and now that Halloween is over, I NEED to put up the Christmas tree. See, for years while Husband worked offshore, we put the tree up in early November, in case he would be gone for a lot of the holiday season. We don't have that problem now, but since we've been doing it for 4 years, I'm used to it. This house is set up really strangely, and because we have a damn sectional sofa (which is what I wanted), there's no space for a big real tree. I sound like I'm whining, I realize that, but I'm not. The house is fantastic in every other way, but be sure, when we buy one next summer, I will think this through more. So anyway, I want to put up the tree this weekend. Preferably tonight. Why not? We aren't having Thanksgiving here, so there's no reason to keep up the leaves and pumpkins. I WANT CHRISTMAS.

I also would like some snow please. Here's our backyard in Louisiana in 2008. It snowed in 2009 also, in Houston too. Here's to hoping we get more snow in 2010!

I'm having a hard time not getting the decorations out now. Which is weird for me. I'm just ready for the holidays this year -- mentally ready. The actual being ready -- not so much.

@slowpanic, yeah, I think I'm more mentally than actually ready as well lol. When the temperatures get back into the 80's next week, I'll regret decorating, I know it.

I will send the Pennsylvania snow your way! Merrrrry Christmas! I just remembered that I have a pink christmas tree, so now I'm dying to put it up!

@Barbie, definitely send the snow our way!!! I actually DREAMED that it snowed last night, I was so disappointed when I realized it wasn't true lol.

A pink tree sounds awesome!! I always see those in the stores and Husband looks at me like "don't even think about it" lol.
