Today was one of the most depressing days of the year around here.
I know, I have such big problems, right?
I hate taking down my Christmas decorations.
I would leave them up much longer but my minimalist hubby starts to twitch when the Christmas decor is left up much longer than New Year's Day.
It is sorta nice once it's down and put away though, the house feels very open and spacious. Kinda even like a blank canvas... my wheels start spinning thinking what shall I do next?? That's the part I like... that fresh start, clean slate sorta feeling once it's all put away.
Right now I'm in the trenches of half filled bins all over, fake pine needles on just about every surface in my house and playing that game of "Does this greenery look wintery or Christmasey?"
I hate that game.
Because really, winter is just starting to throw down around here so winter decorations are completely appropriate. But, when I play that game Christmas almost always wins and I end up stashing all the greenery even when I know it could easily pass for winter.
Oh well, I'm just thankful that taking down Christmas decor is my biggest "problem" because it's really not a problem at all. :)
Before we party, I wanted to quickly tell you that the schedule for my book study will be coming out next week. It's not a big time committment and you can be as much or as little involved as you want. Click this button for details...
