Well, I *finally* took my tree down today. Seriously procrastinated on that one (and yes, this is the same tree that took three minutes to set up)
You know how when you have a mess around for long enough, you learn to completely ignore it? I figured it was time to go when Zack told me this morning "Christmas over, mommy? Tree. Put away."
OK, point taken. So, it's stowed away in the basement. The cards are staying up for awhile longer though because I love seeing them everyday and being reminded of my friends and family. And the Autumn Leaves snowflakes and BasicGrey ornaments that I hung on the twine remind me of the winter season as much as the Christmas holiday. It was a practical solution to little hands pulling cards down and ripping them apart. And I love them swaying in the breeze created by little boys running through the living room.
Tonight, dinner with my parents. And knitting...because I *dont* have any jobs/assignments due tonight...tomorrow is another story :)
