All I Want For Christmas...

And...it is December. It is December 7th, even. There are two full work weeks, or 17 calendar days, before Christmas. Most of my shopping is done, though not all of the packages have arrived. Nothing has been wrapped, though I got some new Happy Tape in the mail yesterday. The cards are in hand, but only a small handful have actually left the premises. We plan to get a tree and a wreath tomorrow, and to put them up on Sunday. (Well, I could put the wreath up tomorrow, but I always like to wait a day for the tree to relax. After all, it'll have been tied up with twine for who knows how long.) The cats don't have stockings, yet, and the nine year old is concerned about this lack of readiness, so perhaps we'll do a bit of sewing tomorrow. I've even converted the car's iPod to all Christmas music all the time, but, I don't know, I'm just not feeling it yet. And I want to be.

That said, there's a video clip of Jimmy Fallow and Mariah Carey and The Roots singing All I Want For Christmas Is You making the rounds. It's kind of genius and thoroughly goofy, and it totally put a smile on my face.



Go ahead. Watch it. Grin a little. Christmas is actually on its way.

I've done nothing. Tomorrow is clean the house and decorate. Then I guess I ought to kick it into gear.

This video has been everywhere. You can't swing a shamed cat on the internet without running into it but you're the one who finally convinced me to hit the play button. It's SO rare that I watch videos.

The minute those intensely cute kids popped up I burst into tears. Merry Christmas!

I got your card today! Loved it!

K and I love this song, a lot. She should be that kid in the sock monkey hat that pops up. LOL!
