As much as I thought I wouldn’t want to put the Christmas decorations away as early this year…today I am leaning toward doing just that. In fact I have had an overwhelming urge to do it all day. I think tomorrow is the day.
Bob is feeling a bit better today so we opened our presents this morning. Once the stockings were empty I folded them up and thought…okay I can put everything away now. This feeling of wanting to pack it all up seems strange to me considering our holiday didn’t go the way we planned with Bob being sick.
I love Christmas and I love all the lights and treasured decorations. I’m just ready to get the house back to normal and prepare for the arrival of 2018.
It’s like a clean slate. A new year. 365 days. A brand new book. Each day is a new page. So I want to get ready.
Maybe all of these thoughts are why I was wide awake with my mind racing between 2 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. this morning. Ugh. Why is it when you are supposed to be sleeping that your brain seems to think it is the exact time to have the most profound thoughts?
Our first Christmas in our new home is over. New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching. Out with the old. In with the new.
But…first I think I will go enjoy one more dinner illuminated by the lights on the Christmas tree.
