Joanna may not of actually been the one to say those words but I first heard it on Fixer Upper on one of the first shows I viewed . It applies to taking down Christmas to me and starting new,
I actually HATE this day for a lot of reasons.
First, its a whole lot of work, right! For me I start decorating in late September because that’s my business, Christmas Decor and my annual boutique is usually late October or early November. It’s just normal in our household.
Second, it’s sad. I love Christmas and it’s kind of like Post Christmas Blues a little.
Third, storing all my stuff has become a movement of sorts. I always try to give away a lot of my older items but I seem to make something that I don’t want to sell and I keep it…poor Doug.
The good thing is when it’s all done..what a blessing to have a clean slate. Decorating ideas start popping into my brain and what DIY projects to I want to start first.
Again poor Doug, this means he’ll probably get drug into another Home Improvement project. I’m laughing because as much as he dreads it, I know he loves the outcome. I need to not overwhelm the poor guy. Its not even January yet. Not for 2 days then..Let’s get busy!
