Day 57 – December 27, 2010


I’m always thankful when the Christmas decorations are back safely in their boxes and put away in the garage. 

It’s not that I fear for their safety.  It’s that I’m glad they are out of my house.

There is nothing I enjoy more than hanging the garland and decorating the tree.  It brings about memories and piques the senses.  But, to be honest, I count the seconds for when I can tear into the ornaments and tinsel to put the house back to a “normal” state.  There’s something refreshing about having the pine scent come from Lysol and NOT a tree.

Even Sidney is happy to be back to a house without temptation.  (She only ate 5 ornaments, that we know of.)
