It's beginning to look alot like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our household. Yesterday and today have been a real struggle for me. My back is killing me. It is bad. I can only seem to get comfort if I am standing up. Sitting down and laying down are real killers. This happened to me a couple of years ago and I went to a chiropractor who said my back wasn't out and most likely a cold has settled into my back. That may be the case again.

Since my back is fine when I am standing up, I got a lot done today. All of our Christmas decorations are up and the house is clean. Cowboy is still gone and will be coming home tomorrow. He's gotten out of decorating again this year. Which also means, he's had no say in how much stuff I put up. The house is looking fabulous.

I am hosting a brunch for the ladies of our neighborhood next Saturday so I feel that I am at least ready to do that.

Last year, we had an open house for the holidays. It was a house warming/open house and I received a Christmas cactus. Much to my surprise, I didn't kill it and it actually bloomed this year.
Our mantel is all decorated. I could just sit in that room for hours with all the lights off. I love Christmas decorations and the spirit of the holidays.

I'm looking forward to Cowboy coming home. He's been gone since Wednesday. That's about the longest he's been gone leaving me at home since we moved in. He said he is having a great time and is happy about the results of the big hunt. He's been able to spend some time with his cousin and visiting old neighbors. I'm glad he is having a good time.

I have cookies baking in the oven and they are done... gotta go have some warm cookies and milk, couldn't wait for Santa.

I am sorry that your back is hurting. I have never heard of a cold settling in a back. Intersting. Maybe that is what happens when my back hurts every once in a while.

Your house looks beautiful and so warm and cozy. There is nothing better then the smell of cookies baking in the oven.
