PLEASE...Someone come over quickly and put all of this stuff away! It's so much fun to get out all the Christmas decorations, but not fun AT ALL to box them up!
I'm running way behind packing up Christmas this year, and it's making me a little crazy. That's because I left the day after Christmas to go to Indiana with Bailey to help her move to her new apartment and I got home on New Year's Eve. Then I jumped head on into prep for classes. So today was the first chance I've had to start taking everything down. Not good, people!
At least I have labeled boxes so most everything has a specific place, so that makes putting things away a tiny bit better. Last year I spent considerable time working on that big project. I had just finished sorting through the contents of my parents' house and was bemoaning the fact that my mom had left me only a little bit of information about household mementos, making it very hard to discern what to keep and what to part with. So as I put away my own decorations last year, I wrote little descriptions and tucked them into the boxes, just in case I get hit by a donut truck. Bailey saw some of my notes over Christmas break and thought they were a bit depressing. I guess that's true, but I still think documentation wins! :)
Of course, it's much easier to put away decorations with a little help from my fur babies! But Lily didn't offer much assistance this time -- she just sat and supervised.
On the other hand, Tinsel jumped in and out of boxes so quickly that she was just a blur!
Okay, enough writing...back to the task at hand! Christmas needs to be put away before Easter gets here!
