Winter is a hard time for me.
See, all year long I have heightened senses. It is really crazy.
I have the nose of a bloodhound. I can smell something from miles away. Believe me this is not always a good sense to have.
Have you ever noticed that popcorn smells like urine? Because that is all I smell when eating it.
In fact I blogged about it here. Not the popcorn, the crazy sense of smell.
Aside from my impeccable smell I also have a crazy sense of hearing. Which has got me into trouble from time to time.
Well usually my sense of touch is perfectly normal, until winter comes along. During winter my sense of touch seems to go up and I get shocked approximately 60 million times a day.
Every time I touch something I get shocked. It does not matter what I touch I get shocked.
Now, I know I'm not the only person who gets shocked in the winter, but I seriously get shocked constantly.
I'm like a walking ball of energy. More so than the average human.
And it makes me very nervous. Anytime I go to touch a light switch I do this weird thing where I will tap it about 5 times quickly to get rid of all of the built up energy that is about to shock me.
It doesn't work. I still get shocked. And I still jump and scream out every time.
But last year I found a solution.
It is my trusty ole humidifier which has become my winter-time best friend.
So when I pull out my Christmas ornaments, Santa collection, and beautiful Nativity set, I also pull out this bad boy.
He has become the staple of my winter-time sanity.
It's just not Christmas time without the humidifier up and running.
Another Christmas item I look forward to pulling out is my book full of Christmas cards.
Receiving Christmas cards is one of my favorite parts of the season. I know that people spend time and money putting their cards together and I can't stomach just throwing them away, so last year I put together a book of all of our cards.
I bought a scrap book and then put fun Christmassy type paper on each page and then filled the pages with all of our fun Christmas cards we received.
I used number stickers to put the year, 2008 at the top of the first page. I think it will be so fun to go through and look at the cards each year.
But I'm also a Christmas card-crazy.
I can't wait to add to it at the end of this Christmas season!
Christmas Cards and humidifiers.....Some of my favorite things!
