These are days of change. My running "season" is over and the weather is getting colder. I am starting to feel the nesting urge more than ever. This nesting urge comes with the hibernating urge. After all the holidays are coming.
The holiday's for my family are not about giving gifts. As I have gotten older they are about time together and a nice meal. This year we plan on spending more money on dinner, in the form of a fancy desert or some exotic appetizers. We are not doing the gift exchange. This also frees us from the obligation of fighting the mall crowds this year.
I personally am excited about Christmas in my new house. My husband and I plan on buying a new bigger tree. We don't like the real trees because we have cats who like to play in the tree. We are also going to decorate it will special ornaments. My husband and I have tree free of tons of purchased ornaments. Kids make ornaments and are given ornaments for special occasions. These are the ornaments we want to fill our tree. So as our life grows and expands our tree will expand.
