Saturday he spent most of the day hanging lights from every portion of our house and also from many of the bushes in the front yard. He then ran out of extention cords so he had to make a quick trip to the hardware store.
I waited and waited for him to come home, almost an hour later he finally returned with an extension cord and something else. At first he tried to hide the fact that he had made a purchase besides the cord but I was not to be fooled.
Soon there was another little addition to our yard...a Christmas lamp post. He had been begging me to let him buy this hideous thing for weeks and I firmly refused. I let him deck the house out with strands and strands of lights but I was not going to allow a silly, tacky lamp post to be placed in my front yard.
Now I am sorry to anyone who has this lamp post - its actually not that ugly - but I do not want that in my yard and so now its just principle. Saturday happened to be a windy day and before I knew it the lamp post had made its way inside and into the foyer. Apparently this lamp post was not sturdy enough to handle the winds and so it was going to makes its home inside.
Well I flatly refused! I told Brian to pack it back up and take it back to the store. It has not yet moved from its place inside.
I am not giving up yet....it may just disappear on of these days....
