Boo hiss. I hate undecorating. Today, in my house is "Undecorating Day", the day the house goes from Christmas festive to winter blah. I'm taking it verrrry slowly, because I hate it so much. As each piece goes down and gets packed away, I get a little bit sadder. The January-February-March stretch of winter always seems to be a terrible drag. Everyone is sick, the weather is nothing but gray, random ice storms freak everyone out and close schools for days, and my mood plummets. Maybe I have a touch of that SAD. (And yes, it's a real condition, Seasonal Affective Disorder!). Plus, and almost worst of all, football season is over. (Insert super sad face here.) Thursday's Orange Bowl victory, while exciting and slightly season redeeming, sounded the end of college football for a very long time. Soon, I'll be reduced to watching Hokie Football Tribute videos on You Tube just to get a fix. Side note: Who makes those things? Who actually has that kinda time? But, I guess I should thank them. It helps get me through.
Okay, I guess I have to get back at it. I just can't stand to go into the living room and look at the bare tree. Plus, I know it will be days before my sweet husband takes it to the basement. Grrr.
