No More Complaints

For the past 20 or so days I have been grousing about having to put up with the red kettle people, the Christmas commercials, the Christmas music and everything else Christmas. Now that Thanksgiving has passed I have lost the right to bitch since that is my cutoff date for the beginning of the season.

This is the weekend I would put the lights up outside and would accept the fact that Christmas had thrown up inside our house. But alas, for another year it will not happen. There will be no lights adorning the Kaos home. None of the outside decorations, like our 6 foot plywood painted Santa hanging from the rain gutter will appear.

It's not that Scrooge is present, I relish the season. It's just that again this year we will leave our home and head west. I had hoped to have a home I could light up this year but it was not to be. Yesterday I toasted NK with a non-traditional Thanksgiving clink....."may this be our last Thanksging in this house". My Christmas wish for our family this year is that the housing market rebounds.

I add my wishes also! You should mail that Santa to the other Kaos household, and let it hang from THEIR gutters. K would love it!

Nope, 6 feet tall, made of plywood, not a good thing to ship.

You and Nana K will totally be lighting up a home, the one in PDX. And that is better then any string you can buy in the store.
