Christmas holiday decorating my holidays

Holiday Decorating… and a few updates

While our tree is very non-traditional in color this year, the rest of our decor is very stereotypically Christmassy. I actually didn’t go too crazy, just the mantel and tabletop and front door. Our pretty white lights strewn over the outside of our house is my favorite part, yet they don’t photograph as nicely as they look in reality. The husband lights a fire every night and we can’t help but sit in front of it and gaze at it for what seems like hours on end… it’s mesmerizing.

Update: LeRoy is still at the amazing Asec Animal Hospital in Santa Monica, where we took him yesterday, and seemingly doing very well. They say we will be able to pick him up tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier. We have been a wreck all week due to the horribly incompetent vets at Sherman Oaks Veterinary Group who did absolutely everything wrong, wasted our time and money {$1700}, only to keep LeRoy locked in a cage for two nights without food, while he continued to get sicker because they weren’t testing him for the correct illness. All they had to do was test his urine but instead did a 6 hour long, unnecessary x-ray, among other invasive things, and tell us he needed surgery and make us worry that he was dying for 3 days. I will never use them again {this is the 3rd time they’ve recommended surgery for 3 different dogs and upon second opinion, were 100% wrong} and I recommend anyone who is currently using them, to stop. Seriously, we are so upset about this situation I can’t even begin to describe the anger that is pulsing through me as I type this. But we get LeRoy back tomorrow and couldn’t be happier.

I have a bit of work to do but hopefully plan on spending the rest of the day baking holiday treats for our family and friends & finish wrapping presents. I honestly am not sure why I have not been taking Xanax all week or downing copious amounts of merlot to deal with all this stress… but I think I will start now. It’s vacation, right?
