Seriously, I backed out of my driveway a couple of days ago and was appalled to see that my neighbor across the street was putting up her Christmas lights, decorating the lawn and had a wreath out to hang!
What is that all about? I still haven't put away my jack o'latern! It is absolutely NOT time to get out the Christmas decor.
So I did what I always do when I am outraged - called The Love to
ME: You will never guess what I just saw?!
LOVE: (totally uninterested!) Ummm, no idea.
ME: E___'s mom is putting up their Christmas decorations!!!
LOVE: (totally unimpressed and possibly even bored!) They're getting started early.
ME: I am not going to stand for this! It is absolutely NOT time to decorate for Christmas. Isn't there some rule in our HOA about when you can decorate? This is ridiculous! Love, they're trying to ruin Christmas for me!!
LOVE: I doubt you even crossed their mind.
Ugh! That man never takes me seriously.
Then the icing on the cake came right after I hung up the phone with my totally unsympathetic and doesn't-even-try-to-pretend-this-registers-on-his-radar husband. I turned the radio on and heard, "Have a holly jolly Christmas..."
Why is everyone against me?
