Overachievers

A neighbor within viewing distance of our house has a Christmas display which can only be meant to shame the rest of us heathens that haven't properly decorated for Christmas. A twelve foot Frosty is lit up at night and gazing at an equally gianormous Santa. Curiously, it's the home of an elderly couple, so it would be "cute" that they decorated together if I weren't so caught up in my lack of decorations.

Perhaps this feeling is reinforced by another neighbor whose house could be used as a landmark to guide jets on their way to the airport. Granted, the guy is a landscaper and really into how his yard looks. He's one of those guys with the pristine yard and a garage where you could eat off the floor. Dh has said that a too clean garage and perfectly manicured yard is the sign of a man who doesn't want to be inside the house with his wife.

Farm Notes:
Mud. That about says it all.

Don't worry about decorations. If anyone complains, just smile sweetly and innocently tell that you're saving the environment this year by not using up so much electricity and that the money you save is being donated to charity in their name.

According to your husband's philosophy, I am happy to say my yard needs help and my garage is a mess. :)

Our garage too looks as if a bomb has been set off in there, and the lawn is full of yellow spots.
We normally decorate outside, at least a little, but this year I've just no motivation. I have our "Frosty" banner up, and that's it, so don't feel bad.
