Back to Normal

The presents are all opened and everyone has gone home. Although we still have left overs to snack on. :)

I'm ready to get the tree out of here. I think having a tree is overrated and that horrifies my mother in law, sister in law, and hubby. They seem to think that the tree is sacred. I just don't see that. I like it. It's pretty. But it's a hassle. It gets needles everywhere. I stress about making sure it has enough water so that it doesn't dry out, catch on fire, and burn our house down.

Yeah...a little paranoia there.

And the garbage STILL hasn't gotten picked up! It's been over two weeks and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate regular garbage pick up. We have bags piling up in the garage. If it were just regular weeks it would be bad enough but we're talking the Christmas season of garbage pile up. Hubby and I are planning a dump run even though when the garbage does get picked up we will be allowed to put extra bags out for no fee ... I can't stand all this stuff piling up. Plus we have other junk that needs to be tossed too. =)

All in all though it was a very good Christmas this year. My mom usually gets really depressed but she seemed happy that my brother was here. And he seemed to have a good time too...nicotine withdrawals aside.

I have to go back to work tomorrow and right now I'm looking forward to it, but check with me tomorrow morning to see if I'm still happy. =) Well, even if I wasn't I'd pretend ... I'm just glad to still have a job!

I hear you. All the decorations are down and put away for another year. I don't purchase real trees for the very reasons you cited. There are no leftovers and the garbage can is completely full. I hope the garbage man comes on Tuesday as we will have excess garbage as well.

I had a great Christmas too. Sounds like we were on the same page so to speak. I'm just ready to move on to spring.

I hope your garbage gets picked up soon. Yikes.

Have a great Sunday. Big hug. :)
