After too many weeks of procrastination, I hung our Christmas lights yesterday. I hang a couple of strands from the eaves and I use all the "old" lights (from years-past, strands that are half-lit) on the shrubs out front.
I was having a hard time getting motivated to hang the lights. All three kids are out of the house and I used to do it for them. Not quite-Griswold, but lots of lights and even inflatibles!
It's a chore & I usually hurt myself in some way, but I got it DONE!
The kids will be coming home for Christmas break this week. They'll enjoy them!
And what a weird tradition. Decorating the outside of our homes. I told my wife, "we should hang our lights on the inside, so we can enjoy them". She chuckled and ignored me.
