Tonight, I opened my email to find "50+ Homemade Christmas Gifts" from one of my favorite magazines. Bah humbug, my house is still in various stages of summer madness. If this email arrived say...4 months from now, I would dive in with enthusiasm. I don't get the whole Christmas in July thing. In fact, after last Christmas, Mister and I have decided to change many things about our family celebration come this December. Since we are smack dab in the middle of summer heat, all I need to do is find the missing flip flops and finally kill the fleas that are persistent with this crazy heat! I will not be making any Christmas gifts but, thanks anyways.
