Would someone out there like to come over and get rid of Christmas for me? The tree and all the decorations need to be taken down and put away, and the cookies need to be tossed. It seems my husband and I have grown increasingly lazy over the last two weeks and lack all motivation (the cookies may have something to do with that).
And while you’re at it, could I get you to take the lights off the house too? I warned my husband that “what goes up, must come down” (and be stored somewhere) but he didn’t heed the warning. He put SOOOOO many lights and inflatables in the yard and on the house. Our street looked like the Vegas strip, as there was an unspoken competition between my husband and two of the other ‘manly men’ on the street over which house had the biggest and best decorations. Men.
The neighbors took down their decorations yesterday but our house is still quite festive looking-even though we are painfully aware that IT’S OVER.
When do you get rid of Christmas and all the trimmings?
