This year for Christmas please keep our cat Pinky from electrocuting herself when she tries to suck on the Christmas tree lights. Sure it’s cute when her cheeks light up, but this just can’t end well.
Is it too much to ask that our new Pomeranian, Firefox, lay off the accidents on the tree skirt? I promise not to complain if he goes back to peeing on the bath mat. At least until after New Year’s.
Also, Santa, can you keep the pets from knocking down the Christmas tree? We are running short of ornaments, and I really liked the one we got the year my husband and I married. You can barely see the cracks or my tear stains after I glued it back together.
But, if something happens to our creepy Santa candle, I won’t complain. Storing it in the attic was probably a mistake, but that thing never was much to look at.
Can my kids stop telling me new things the “really, really want”? My shopping is done, so they are out of luck if they see a commercial for something they’ve always wanted but didn’t realize until they heard about it for the first time today.
I hope my kids like the ugly Christmas sweaters I made for them. The pattern is a combination of puce and chartreuse stripes. I call it charpuce.
And please remind my husband of the “nothing that plugs in” rule for presents. Unless it’s from Apple. And then it’s okay.
