Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
How long does it take you to put up your Christmas lights?
I might be Mr. Christmas online but offline I'm afraid to admit I'm a big disappointment to my kids. More often than not I procrastinate putting up our Christmas lights until it is either too cold, too dangerous or too late (according to me, according to them that time never comes).
Today I had my 11 year old ask if it was too early to start stringing up the lights as she wants a BIG light display this year.
I take my time starting the second week in November to put my lights up inside and outside the house. I usually put lights around all the main doorways inside the house, and some windows too. I take the first week in November to take down the Halloween decor. I do not turn on the lights until the day after Thanksgiving, some mysteriously get turned on before that date though.
CM3, we miss you.

As soon as Thanksgiving is over, the lights start going up! My hubby does 90% by himself, but he likes to get it over with in one day, so he typically makes it an all day project. By the time 6 or 7pm rolls around, he's calling us outside to come look at his handywork.
I can't wait!
