The last 48 hours just about did me in. But I keep coming back to that famous saying, “That which does not kill you sends you to the madhouse.”
You see, I got this phone call many weeks ago. I was just returning home from Tahoe, and heard a voice on my answering machine, saying something about a magazine and “. . . your home is lovely and we’d like to talk to you about a photo shoot . . .” I listened and listened and thought, oh geez, one of my friends is crank calling me, ha ha ha ha.
So for the last two months, all my Christmas stuff has still been up in my house.
I’m convinced that my neighbors must think I’m absolutely cuckoo. I can hear them now. “What’s wrong with that family? It’s February, for goodness sake, take your Christmas tree down!”
So I’ve suffered the shame of the neighborhood for a photo shoot in BH&G’s ‘Christmas Ideas’ magazine, taking place in my house on Thursday! “Excited” does not begin to describe.
