Ready for December

This has been a most productive day, but certainly not in the sewing room.  I got 2 trees decorated and the lights done outside.  Well, almost...I came in to have a drink of water and catch my breath.  I should have skipped the drink - it started to rain and I can't finish tonight.  It's dark enough to see the lights now, and I just love them.  My husband likes them as well, but he sure hasn't moved a muscle to help out this year.  Don't get me wrong - several years ago I realized that if I wanted outside lights I would have to do them and they would have to be 'bush' level because I'm certainly not going to do any climbing out in the dark and cold.  I'll have to finish the outside lights in the morning, but I don't think I can do another tree.  I'll get the last 3 done tomorrow.  I want to get all the mess put away by tomorrow evening.  I love the decorations, but putting them up and taking them down really puts the house in a turmoil.  Hopefully, I'll be done tomorrow and I can post some pictures.

I feel like you...I LOVE the decorations and the lights but it gets harder and harder each year to do the putting up and taking down. I think it's the packing away of the year-round stuff so that I can FIT the decorations that really gets to me....and then the unpacking of it and repacking the decorations at the end of the holiday season. I hate having to wrap everything...but it's a necessity so things won't break. I am far behind this year on my decorating and hope to be done by mid-week.

No kidding!!!! I'd be exhausted after all that decorating.

I agree with Pat. I love the decorations but I really don't like the taking down and I realize that the more you put out the more you have to take down. I do less and less each year. I am not a Scrooge but it gets harder when your kids are gone. My husband likes it but he isn't much help!
