Ugh. I over decorate. I can't help it. I'm emotionally attached to my Christmas stuff. So much of it was made by our grandmothers, my mom, me and my kids. My mother-in-law has always bought a special Hallmark ornament for each of us each Christmas. Going through them is like having a story told about each of my children. Then there are the ornaments my children made through the years... How does the time go by so fast? And all the stuff my grandma made... she died in 2000.
I have to have everything packed a certain way so I won't let anyone help me. Everything has been pulled down and is in organized piles throughout three floors of the house. All of our ornaments are individually wrapped and put into their own boxes so it takes time.
I do my "spring" cleaning after I put all the Christmas stuff up. I have a lot of ivy that has a year's worth of dust on it. I clean it before I put it back up. At this point, I am hoping to have the house clean by Friday evening. I want to get the carpets cleaned next week.
This has got to be the most boring post of all time. That was my lengthy reason as to why I am not blogging right now. Writing this post doesn't count. Not in my book. It would in Mr. Macchiato's book... but, we are going by my book here. What? You don't have a book? Why sure you do! It's right there in your little ole head.
Have a great day!!!
