I worked on the lights all day long. I had some help from our friend who is staying with us, Lynn, but then she left and I continued. I managed to get all the lights and wreaths and reindeer's up without falling off the roof. No cussing, no smashed fingers, and yes, I like you am totally surprised and astonished myself that this has come off without a hitch.
We just returned from our trip to the Vance's for annual pie night. It was great! Lot's of pie and other deserts to sample, good recipes, good company and good visiting. The only thing that got my goat was how people were blatantly saying that I am High Maintenance. I was flabbergasted at this. I am NOT high maintenance. I am however, OCD, anal retentive and any other organized adjective you can through at me (BTW, Princess is high maintenance and she knows it, accepts it, and openly acknowledges it). So I had a long, very long drawn out conversation about how my quirks are not HM, but AR or OCD. It was quite comical, and anyone who knows me, knows that I am definitely Anal retentive or OCD, not High Maintenance!
Wiktionary lists HM as " 1 - a system which requires a high degree of maintenance to ensure proper functioning, 2 - (figuratively) a person who requires a lot of attention"
Wiktionary lists AR as " 1 - preoccupied with achieving order and control and with collecting, possessing, and retaining objects, 2 - overly obsessive concerning small details"
Wiktionary lists OCD as "1 (medicine) A form of anxiety characterised by an obsessive compulsion to repeatedly perform trivial or meaningless actions".
So, based on this picture I've painted dear readers, which do you think I am, HM, AR, or OCD (the answer better be AR or OCD or a combination thereof)! :-> Let me know.
