Counting on Christmas

The tree is up. The light outside are up. The music is on. It is pretty exciting getting ready for Christmas in our new home.
Yesterday I had to change a ceiling light fixture. Not much of a problem except for trying to do it in dim light as the power was off. This shouldn't have been a problem except I started it at 12:30PM and didn't finish it until 6PM. It really didn't take to long, we just did other things in between. I spent over an hour deciding on new stockings. This again wasn't a problem it just reminded me that this house has no fireplace. It not a shock to find that out. I realized that after we put our offer in. I kinda liked the old stockings even now that there is no orange tree in our yard for Santa to pick from and put in the bottom of the stocking to stretch them out.
Yes I know that Santa can still put an orange in the stocking but what if he doesn't have room on the sled? I mean with all the gifts it was just convenient for him to take from the tree in the back yard. I know he can do a lot but I think it is just asking to much to Pick one there and bring them here. I don't even know his route and if this will just make him late.
Anyhow. The light got installed and all is well for now. I did learn never to go to Michael's to buy anything unless you know exactly what it is or you'll end up spending hours looking at everything and it all begins to look the same.
