Have yourself a fucking Merry Christmas

Last night M and I decided to put up the Christmas Tree and I am happy to report that not only are we both still alive, but we’re also still dating. There comes a point when you’ve been together long enough that you just know that you’re going to fight about some things. Even when both parties are trying their hardest not to fight about things, somehow it’s almost better when you just let loose.

In all honesty we ended up doing pretty well. I tried (with minor success) to not be offended by every suggestion made in reference to my artistic pursuits and I tried (with real success) to be open to new and alternative tree decorating ideas. M tried to curtail his critical eye (with some success) and pepper his suggestions with compliments (with much success). The tree is up, and is lovely and we both survived to love another day without anyone having to shout, cry or attack inanimate objects. Really, if we’d done it without the underlying tension I would have worried about where the fire had gone.

While it went well, it also took a long fricken time. Yesterday was a long day, starting with a meeting at 8 a.m., so staying up unilt 1:30 a.m. may not have been the best decision. Case in point, this morning I discovered when I got to work that instead of putting brown eye liner on my lids, I had actually put on a lovely shade of pink lip liner. Oy.
