"Where Are You Christmas?"

....packed back in the antique chests in our house and bins in our garage....Hallelujiah!

That was Michele's favorite song of the season, and I agree, Faith Hill does an amazing job with it. Of course, Christmas is certainly still in my heart, but I'm good with a little break. Of course, I'll be chomping at the bit for the great holiday/vacation that is "Harvest-Football-Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas" come September, but in the meantime, a little reality check is oh-so-necessary!

It took me ALL DAY to transition the house back to it's pre-September state. Part of the length of time was a result of trying to re-sort all of the decor and put it back in such a state that it will make sense next year. The older I get, the more I realize the value of jotting notes about things that "I'm sure I'll remember next year, but just in case" - cuz I never remember!

So, come the weekend of Labor Day, don't hesitate to remind me that the big Harvest Sign that sets above the tv, that doesn't fit in any bins- is safely stored behind the craft cabinet in the bonus room.....

Woo hoo and YIPPPEEEEE, I say!! I feel exactly the same way. A little bittersweet about packing it all away but while I'm doing it, I'm already looking forward to pulling it out in November!!

That was a good idea about leaving yourself notes - I still believe that I will remember that long. Like that will EVER happen...

I'm always happy to have all that stuff put away also. After Chrsitmas it just seems like clutter. Sad, but true.
