*sigh*

So, its back to real life today. And I don't like it one bit! Ryan has had the last 10 days off and I have loved every minute of it. I have also neglected to house, the laundry, the grocery shopping etc. and now I have to do something about it now that Ryan is back at work. Ugh. No desire what so ever! But we have no food, other than Christmas leftovers that are getting a little iffy. My family can barely get dressed from lack of clean clothes, and my house looks like a bomb went off. I know its been clean a few time in the last 10 days, how can it look like this??

I'm debating whether to take the decorations down today. I usually am very staunch about waiting until new years, but I think I might have to do it if I want to really clean the house today. I hate taking down the decorations. Not only is it kind of a pain, and makes a mess before it gets better, but my house looks so empty and drab when I take everything down. It makes me sad. I experience major after Christmas let-down when its all gone. *sigh*

So, we'll see if I actually accomplish anything today. But I had to blog this so that everyone knows I have good intentions. I really do like a clean orderly house, its just so hard to keep up on! Wish me luck.

I am having those same issues, and Dave was only home starting at noon on Christmas Eve. How is it possible that even when I pick up, it still looks like a bomb went off? And what did I have on my walls before Christmas? It's insanity.

I so feel your pain! I think I'm leaving my Christmas stuff up until Valentines, because it might be that long before I get around to taking it all down! Good luck today!

My stuff was down the morning of the 26th. Cameron thinks I'm such a scrooge, but I could not handle the clutter (or the tree that eats up all the space in our front room) for one second longer. And even though I have LOVED having Cameron home for a few days, I am completely ready to drop kick my kid back to kindergarten and get back into a routine again.

I'm with you... It's always tough to go back to "normal" after Christmas. And, it makes me think I really need to learn to decorate the rest of the year!

I love the fresh look! It's like all of my old decorations are new again:)
