Is it just me or is your Christmas tree still up too? I wish I could just call somebody to come take care of it for me...is that wrong? If you're looking for a business to get into, I think that would be a great one. Just one call and it's all put away.
I saw this idea on Pinterest to use an egg carton to store small fragile ornaments so I've been saving an empty egg carton for just that purpose. I finally broke down this morning and took a few ornaments down. Maybe that's how I'll do it...a few at a time, when the notion passes over me...while I'm chatting on the phone or in those pockets of time between stuff to do. At that rate, though, we'll still have the tree up at Easter. It would be better just to make that call and have the after Christmas crew of fairies take care of it.
Maybe this laziness I'm feeling is a symptom of some sort of after Christmas disorder. Any ideas to help me snap out of it?
Meanwhile, that hole in the wall for the dollhouse room? Still unfinished. Rich started to make it in the coat closet but found a pesky pipe in the way. He patched up that hole magnificently (you'd never even know it was there!) and is now working on making a beautiful hole in the pantry. He's sanding and finishing it off so nicely but, as I'm discovering, this kind of perfection takes a lot of time, a lot of patience, and a lot of rest in between (I say that with not a bit of sarcasm, I promise) God bless that man for doing this for me...I've never felt so loved.
With all this laziness and inertia and newyearsishness, I have been doing a lot of thinking. Thinking about how I spend my time (when I'm not so lazy) and about this sweet boy we're raising up. I'm not sure exactly what I'd like to cut back on (perhaps worrying?)...but I sure would like to do more cuddling while he's still cuddly, more talking about life and more answering his sweet questions. And coloring. I'd like to do more coloring.
