Out with the old

I know that it's not even the new year yet, but Christmas was 5 days ago. Anyone else out there looking forward as much as I am to getting all the dusty damn garlands, ornaments, and light strands out of their living rooms, family rooms, kitchens, porches, and front yard? I can't wait to purge this house of all things Christmas and get back to the clean, uncluttered lines of bare windows, mantels, and doorways, all lit up by the sunshine that will come in through a window unblocked by a big, dead Fraser fir.

I'm done with the winter holidays. Time to think about spring cleaning and vegetable seeds...

been there, done that. all my crap is gone and buried....I left it up for 2 days after Christmas then I could take it no longer, and I got rid of every single peice of garland, light, star, stocking...you name it.

I love my house again!

New Years day is when we always take down our stuff. I love my christmas tree, but it'll be nice to have that spot back.

I'm not at that point yet (probably because I've been away for a few days), but in a few days I'll be ready to de-Christmasfy our house.

I can't wait to take all of this stuff down either! I have to wait until next Monday though, when all of the kids are in school. The younger ones get really sad when we take the tree and the decorations down.

Have a wonderful New Year!
