A week from now all the Christmas deco will be taken down and put away for another year at our house. It all has to stay though til after New Years Day. That is when all of our kids and grandkids will be here for gift exchange, pizza and football.
Santas will be put away but the snowman stays through February.
The fire stays but the tree will be put away.
Santa and his reindeer will go.
It's like when you go on a trip. You know that in a little while you'll be coming back the same way you went. It's the same when you put all the Christmas deco up, you know it has to come down sooner or later. I'm so glad I don't have to go to work anymore. Retirement means doing things at your own pace. So I don't have to be in a hurry to put all the decorations away. Hopefully, I won't be sick of it all by then.
