The Christmas War...and I think the Bins are winning!
As with most of you, I've been dragging out the decoration bins. I have 12 of them. Then there's the stuff stored in garage cabinets, and a former big linen closet who's shelves became the Christmas closet. I swear, each year I manage to forget just how much stuff I have! Probably a good thing. LOL. Tho it would nice to remember BEFORE I go and buy more during the year. This year I felt I really needed to cut back on decorating. (Partly due to my 'missing' Christmas spirit, from missing my Dad
so much, and partly due to the blasted Fibro being so crippling in my legs.) So my 3 'big' trees are staying in
the shed. (now don't laugh, but they are only 6 ft tall each. So they don't really qualify as big trees at all.
They just happen to be MY big trees. LOL.) I decided to decorate a 4 ft silver tinsel tree that I haven't used the last few years, and a couple of other smaller trees.
But back to the bins and the war going on in my family-room as I sort thru stuff. I decided to donate things
I haven't used the last year or two, or no longer really wanted. So for DAYS the sorting has been going on, and I swear I feel I've accomplished so little as far as the actual decorating. Patience is NOT my virtue!
Today was fluffing garland and trying to place it. That has to be one of the worst Christmas jobs, LOL. I hate the stuff...till its actually finished and looking good. (there are times as I am messing with it, that I think the guy who invented garland is the same fool who invented pantyhose! Both are a lot of work just to look good for a short while!)
Do you go to bed so tired of seeing bins, and then your head won't stop thinking about them...or where you are going to put all the stuff that's in them? I sure hope its not just me being weird. ;o)
Oh....Jeanne, maybe I should not have said anything on your post about our mid-70s, tee shirt weather. LOL
The weather guy said a cold front is coming in on Thurs and will drop us into the 50's. Holy Cow, that's a
big change! We might even get some rain (which would be a good thing!) But I guess while I'm unpacking bins, I better get out my long-sleeve stuff.
