It's time to clean up the house... migrate the toys into Julianna's room from the Living room & re-arrange things so they all fit somewhere in her teeny room! Time to make the pile of returns/exchanges to go back this week. Time to think about taking down the tree & putting everything "Christmas" up in the attic. Time to get my house back in order. I need order in my house. I love Christmas, but when it's over... I need to go back to normal ASAP.
I also get a terrible case of the "Christmas Blues" for a few days. I love Christmas so much that it actually makes me depressed for a few days when it's over.
And I could care less about New Years Eve... I did all that "New Years" partying for a long time and I have no need for that anymore - I would rather stay home and not be on the road with the drunks (OMG I sound soooo old!!). Our plan is to stay home and get take-out from our favorite pizza place and watch a movie. Works for me! I'll take the 3 day weekend thank you.
I miss the excitement and the fun of the month of December. Now it's time to face the reality of cold & snow in NJ ... and the fact that seeing the first flowers push through the ground is still so far off in the distance. *sigh*
I know I was meant to live somewhere warm. Well, that's why Brian, me & Baby Belle will end up in South Carolina soon ... when we can sell this house. No more horrid winters - and we'll have warm weather for 3 seasons in Greenville. But still getting 4 full seasons during the year. Ahhh yes, I can close my eyes and imagine... Then I open my eyes and see the thermometer at 28 degrees & the yucky snow on my deck and I frown!
Now it's time to face the reality of taking down the Christmas decorations. Hmmm Probably Saturday. I can remember as a kid, my parents still had the tree up the first week in February. LOL.
When does everyone else take down their Christmas decorations?
I Just love this kid to pieces- Look at that face!! Look how happy Daddy makes her!
