Day 343 – Fuck.

The girls have been wanting us to put up lights outside.  Great, I thought – I’ll put up the extra lights – no problem.  I carefully tested all of the light strands before I put them up.  Then, I turned them on.  Can you tell some have decided not to work now?  Fuck.  Just what I want to do – stand outside again in the blowing wind making it a whole 14 degrees outside.  My fingers just started warming up after the time spent outside fucking with this earlier.  But, the holidays are about the kids, right?

  1. While it’s not quite as cold here, the two bulbs that were out on mine were at oppsite ends of the second story roof. I’m not afraid of heights exactly…but I don’t like em neither.

    Merry Christmas!

    I’ve grown weary of fucking with Christmas lights. When I was going through them before hanging them last week, I found 3 sets of icicle lights with entire segments dark. Fuck it, I tossed ’em and bought new lights. The $30 I spent was worth it to preserve my sanity.

    As long as the kids are happy!

  3. OMG babe!
