Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Fah-hoo Foraze.


I'm working on an article for a magazine with a spring theme, and since some photos of my house will accompany it, we've had to keep a lid on Christmas decorations until the shoot was over. No holiday lights, no snowglobes, not so much as a strand of tinsel.

I am the Grinch who stole Christmas.

Just as Whoville was about to openly revolt, the photographers came and went, bearing so much gear, our new neighbors were surely convinced we were making home movies in the style of Zac and Miri.

They hadn't gotten to the end of the driveway before I threw the door open, shoved our tree into the house, flung Patrick up into the attic to find the ornaments, and started running around stringing lights up.

It's on, baby. Welcome, Christmas. Bring your cheer.

I can only image the rovolt... we were much later putting up our tree and decorations due to the fact we had a toothpick bridge project on the go. Once the assignment was turned in we were good to go. For some reason I put all of Christmas on hold until after my son's project was done - even my shopping... now I am scrambling because we just had a big snow event.

I'm totally with Joy on this. I can imagine you in a frantic state tossing tinsel everywhere for sheer glee that its Christmastime and you can show it!
