almost gone / head to toe in christmas
we have been boxing up all of our stuff for the past few days and this morning we picked up a uhal truck and packed it full of our belongings and after a good hour and most of our things loaded into the truck, we got a phone call from our new landlords in california saying that they are re-doing the wood floors on monday and we won't be able to move in until tuesday at the earliest. so... all of our things are packed up and who know when we will leave or how long i will be wearing the same clothes that i am currently wearing. speaking of clothes, one thing that i have always noticed, but this year was in full effect was people out and about during the holidays "dressed head to toe in christmas." by this i mean only wearing new things that you got for christmas. new shoes with new pants and shirt with a new coat. sometimes a hat. sometimes a earmuff. young and old alike. why only wear one new item when you can be fully dressed in the most hip new apparel? not that i don't already do that, but next year i'm going to join the herds and only wear all new things for at least a week after christmas. like i stated earlier, i don't mind wearing the same clothes for days on end if needs be. and sometimes needs do be.
