…I gave up on Christmas decorations.

That doesn’t sound like a victory, but it really is. Because the truth is, I don’t give a shit about Christmas decorations, and I don’t want to work that hard at them.

So when I walk through the neighborhood and realize my house is pretty meager compared to the 24 hour light shows left and right, I no longer feel inferior. Instead I feel like I’m going to go to sleep without thinking a second longer than I have to about it.


…we bought a bunch of Halloween stuff on clearance.

This was largely another year that didn’t happen for us. Sadly that includes Halloween decorations. We only put up like 1/3 of our shit and even then it only went up yesterday.

But on the plus side, the last week of October is a good time to go shopping for cheap as hell yard stuff. So we’ll have more to show next time.

I have Nov 1 off, too. Gonna cram as much in my car as I can.
