I blame Martha
When did the holidays get so far out of control? The hustle and bustle, the pressure to buy, buy, buy and the pressure to have everything just perfect? I'll tell you what I think.......I blame MARTHA
You know it's bad when women are rolling in the aisles, fighting over the last packet of glitter or gold leaf paint!
I'm not going to feel shame because my Christmas table won't look like this
And my gifts will NOT look like this
I watched Ms Perfect on a talk show earlier this week. She "supposedly" had created a beautiful winter table setting - all from downed trees that fell on her property during hurricane Sandy. Yeah, when a 100 trees blow down on my property, my first thought is "Grab the saw, glue gun, and glitter and let's make wooden placemats and polar bear center pieces with glitter". Pfft! Whatever. I have a suggestion where she can stick that glue gun!!
So ladies, lets stop letting the Ms Perfect's of the world make us feel inferior and lazy for not going completely friggin overboard and ending up like this
It's OK if your tree looks like this
Martha......stuff it! It's family that matters.
