A short time back I mentioned a book that I had recently read, "On Strike for Christmas" by Sheila Roberts, about a group of wives that go on strike to get ready for the holidays, and how their hubbies are amazed and challenged to get everything ready.
Well, now I'm having my own little chuckle, because of my limited movement, my own darling hubs is having to pitch in a lot more than he normally does. He loves the decorated house, but is more of a reactive particpant, giving his opinions after the fact. The most that I've even been able to get him to do is hang a few ornaments on the tree, as long as I'm doing it too, but then he quits after a few minutes, preferring to "watch".
And a couple of years ago, he helped me decorate the sugar cookies, but I quickly caught on to him intentionally messing them up, or breaking off a piece, just so he could eat as many or more likely, more than he frosted! :-)
But this year, he is having to help me bring down boxes from upstairs, more up from the basement, lend a supporting arm to hang garland, etc. I'm still having to do the actual decorating, but he is doing the grunt work, and I've heard the words, "I had no idea. . " muttered more than once! Wait until he realizes that he has to help me put everything away again!
And because the porch, althought it is enclosed, is unheated, it was the first room to be dressed for the season. Right now, it is darn cold out there! It is currently 25 degrees, and the high for the day!
Have a great weekend, and if you are in the North, keep warm!
