Last weekend Bossy’s husband
threw some lights at the gutter diligently strung Christmas lights on the Casa de blog.
Bossy didn’t attach the above photo of the Christmas lights so you could admire her husband’s handy work, but so you could witness that Bossy’s Poverty Party has slipped outside and attacked the holiday wattage.
Usually the white icicle lights on Bossy’s house extend up and over the roof line all the way to the rear of the house, which is, all told, approximately two feet. And typically their lights surround the dormer windows on the second floor.
Bossy was too
weak busy to dig up a photo of her house during previous holidays, but the following is an artist’s rendering, where artist equals Somebody hide the Photoshop!
Bossy and her husband purchased all of their holiday lights this year at Target, which means they are fifteen days from going on the blink, where blink equals They don’t blink because they are dead.
Target’s holiday lights are relatively inexpensive and festive, but you need to know they will only last one season. Or perhaps, as a totally random example, your husband hangs them two years in a row and the lights punk out a few days into December and you spend the rest of the month trying to shove a new string of lights into the tree’s dark patch while yelling in the direction of your own personal reindeer that Next Year you will totally remember to buy all new sets.
So Bossy and her husband went to Target with the philosophy that they were starting from scratch, where scratch equals Bossy’s cleansing diet is beginning to make her feel like the inside of her skull is itchy.
They purchased two extra-long sets of white icicle lights, $13.98
They purchased five sets of mini-lights for the Christmas tree, and two additional sets of mini-lights for the family room, $27.93
Of course the above total also represents the purchase of an additional
long-ass string of lights for their son’s dorm room because Decorative Lighting isn’t allowed. Bossy’s son is going to string his lights next to his roommate’s microwave, which also isn’t allowed.
