I'm really not much of a decorator. I do put more thought into decorating for Christmas. It is always so hard for me to take down the decorations - especially the tree. Jenna must take after me as she is also having a hard time with it.
This year I have decided to make it just a bit easier on myself by taking down something just a bit at a time. On Tuesday I packed up the books that I had only attempted to look at. I don't think anyone else did. On Wednesday I removed the cards from the door. On Thursday I took down the plush toys that hung around the frame of the mirror. And each day I would also remove ornaments from the tree.
Last night Jenna went to Roseburg with Roland and I decided to remove the remaining ornaments while they were gone. I should have waited until daylight. What was I thinking? And why has every house I've lived in had such poor lighting in the front room?
The decorations from the outside trees were removed on Friday. the lights no longer adorned our house. The inside tree still stands with its light which we will remove tomorrow. It makes the end of Christmas so final. And Tuesday is back to school.
