For those of you who want more postings about Michelle and I, here ya go. Michelle is becoming "mildly obsessive" with decorating our home. Regular decorations, Christmas decorations, anything goes. Maybe I'm just a guy and don't get this overindulgence in decorating (if you go to all that effort to paint the walls, then why put massive pictures in front of them...haha).
Let's just say that I have a mild fear that we may have to get two Christmas trees because she is on pace to have so many ornaments. I mean, how many Peanuts and Snoopy ornaments do you really need? And she's been ebaying for some "noma bubble lights" without success so far.
So, I acknowledge I must control the beast (Michelle's decorating habits is the beast, not Michelle...just for clarification) and so I think we will be safe from burning the house down or turning our home into one bright spectacle much like the Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas Vacation house.
Two things I am striving for to reach a middle ground in the Decorating Saga:
1. Total decorating control of the office in exchange for Michelle having 99% control of the rest of the house (I still have Presidential Veto power as I am man of the house).
This resolution has been passed by a count of 2-0.
The office will soon have over 50 pieces of sports memorabilia on its' walls (IU posters, Kent Benson bobblehead, Bulls posters, vintage mini-NBA posters, starting lineup figures, and of course a classic STRYPER Poster thanks to my Brother Dan).
This room will be quite a spectacle. It will be a tribute to men everywhere!!
I may need some more music posters also!
2. Giant inflatable snow globe in the front yard. Those large hideous creatures in the front yard that stand about six feet tall...you've seen them. Chances are you're like me and someone down the street has about 6 of them in their front yard and thinks it's the coolest thing ever. (Just between you and me I'm not sure I really want one unless it had the nativity scene in it, or Bobby Knight as Santa Claus....but the fact that I know Michelle absolutely despises them keeps me pushing for it). I assume one giant decoration will balance out all the little one's she has...so that way we both have "contributed" to decorating the house for Christmas.
The first voting went as assumed, tied 1-1.
Since it was a tie, a 2nd vote will be taken next November to determine whether the proposition "Giant Huge Awesome Snow Globe in the Front Yard so anyone within a 1/4 mile can Identify it and thus know we are cool people" will be passed.
At that time, I may have to use my Presidential Power.
Only 11 and a half months to find out.
Enjoy the weekend!
