Deck the Halls with Cardboard and Construction Debris
December 7, 2007
This week we brought all of our Christmas bins filled with decorations down from the attic. We went through them all and I am just not feeling the love this year. I am not sure if it just that I am tired of the same old decorations that I use every year or if it is just this Christmas in particular.
Or if I just don’t remember where to put the decorations. I keep pulling things out of the bin and thinking, ‘Huh, where did I used to put this?’
I feel as if time is racing forward so fast that I can’t even keep up, let alone enjoy any of the moments. I still have my autumn decorations outside, including a pumpkin that has frozen, defrosted, and re-frozen so many times that it is all black and gross looking.
My dining room has no furniture in it. We took it all out when our new kitchen cabinets were delivered so they would have somewhere close by the kitchen to be stored. And while I could wrap garland and lights around all the boxes, it really isn’t the look I am going for.
I think I had a point I was going make. But helping my two youngest put on all their snow gear to go outside and play is a lot like trying to wrestle jello into a snowsuit.
