lazy days...

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 :)

    hi e! love your card idea. =)

  2. love the line strung across... I used to do that, maybe I'll do it again next year. Mucho cuto. :) Actually, I left mine up all year long with some cute clothespins from the container store, it made the kids so happy to see their cards up there (and helped us remember them longer) -- from grandma, etc.

  3. I still have my tree up.
    the urgency to take it down is gone with a fake tree!
    what are you knitting?
    I started a sock!

    Dude, where the hell is MY card? Oh wait... I know... it DID get ripped down when you were showing it to Carlos because you thought the killer on CSI looked *just* like Chris. Don't you worry... I'm keeping my eye on that one. JUST IN CASE. Can't wait to see you. :) WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
