To Decorate or Not To Decorate
Among all the things I had to get done this weekend, one thing purposely slipped my mind. I saw it everywhere though. All the Christmas decorations glimmering from homes, everywhere I turned. I feel like I've entered a mini Vegas. I think that while I was working on Friday, those that had the day off went running with glee and a lot of caffeine to get those massive decorations up that quickly.
Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and usually run to my decorations as well. I mean, with the amount of time it takes to get them up, I want to enjoy them as long as possible. This year is different though. I'm feeling a little Grinch. For one, I can't believe Christmas time has already come around again. Two, I've been working on Christmas ads for the last two months, so I'm already tired of the commercialism. Last, but not least, I just took down my Halloween decorations, so you can see where my priorities are.
This small decision is killing me though. I know it won't be the same without the decorations, but I just don't feel like putting them up. I'm giving myself two days to make the decision. To Decorate or Not to Decorate...that is the question.
