I wonder why putting away Christmas decorations in January doesn't elicit the same excitement in me that getting them out in November does?
Yesterday I took the decorations off the tree. Seriously, nothing is worse than staring at a bare naked tree in your dining room. When the hubs got home from work he carried it outside, leaving a lovely mess of pine needles in its wake, reminding me once again that my holidays are over.
Tonight, we tackled the rest of the decorations. Out came the Rubbermaid bins and in went the cute little Santas, Snowmen and Christmas trees. Goodbye for another year. Now my house feels cold and empty with bare walls and a whole lot of what seems like boringness to me right now. Even though I brought back out the everyday decorations I had put away over the holidays that make this house our home on the other 330 days of the year, there is something about my Christmas decorations that make it feel so warm and cozy. So, now I feel all blah about my house and am craving some new decorating ideas. I've got a few things in mind so I will keep you posted if I end up coming up with any creative ingenuity.
Sorry this wasn't a very happy post ... on a happier note, my brother taught me how to make a slideshow with my flickr photos, so there are pictures from our Christmas posted on yesterday's post.
