took down the tree and all the Christmas decorations and packed them away for another year. I always enjoy unpacking them just before Christmas. It's like unwrapping a new present or getting acquainted with an old friend. I look forward to seeing some of my collections, some that date back to when I was a little girl. My mom's nativity, we didn't put up this year (I have about 6 nativities and just didn't have a place for this one) So I went through each piece, remembering back to fond times.
WE also changed around the living room, moving the computer and I still am not totally done yet. I had my husband hang some pictures with his bull dog nails that he is so fond of - Me? I just use a hammer and nails. But then again, my pictures and shelves are notorious of falling off the wall.
Oh the carpet is terrible - with our elderly dog during his last weeks here, he had so many accidents. We spot cleaned but it needs a major cleaning.
A big job today for sure -
PS. Today was my Dad's "heaven date". 5 years ago, he died from a heart attack. Sure do miss him and in a way, a part of my Mom died too. She ended committing suicide the following year.
