Peach State says: Decolorizing of the Home!

20131228-072254.jpg
It has begun…the annual Decolorization of the Home! This has also been named “Just put it in a box labeled Christmas”…Oops! I hope my son realizes that there are a few more decorations to add to the oversized bins this year!

“Mom bought a few new items this year…on sale!”

The simple, and often complicated, job of taking down the decorations gives the home a fresh and uncluttered feel as we usher in the New Year. The only drawback is the Diva-like-attitude that accompanies the repetitive picking up and placing in the bin motion. SO…being the loving mom, that I am, I have already begun taking down items and have made piles of similar decorations.

“Grab a bin and place the pile into the bin…move to the next pile….”

I will need to stress, once again, to please place the Fall and Halloween decorations on top of the Christmas decorations so that I can actually find them next year! “And please do not stack them to the ceiling where I can’t reach them!” That’s a fair request…I am Vertically Challenged!

This sad part about this is the fact that next year I will be decorating ALL BY MYSELF! “Remember my go-getter-I’ll-do-it-I-got-this-for-you son is leaving in 28 days…and counting…for the Army!” Maybe my hubby can pay the servants a little extra to do the decorating! “Wait a second….We don’t have any servants!” I know what you are thinking…What about the youngest son? If I want all of the Christmas Coffee Cups lined across the counter I will know who to call! Even though he has been here for 6 1/2 years he still has no concept of where things go…much less what a tree skirt is. “He was taking one of my tree skirts to the trash because it had a hole in it… “We had a quick lesson on hems and seams!”

20131228-075816.jpgI need to remember to grab a couple of ornaments off the tree before the “demolition squad” wakes up. There are two, in particular, that I will keep out all year long!

20131228-080308.jpgIf you look real close you will see an Orange and Blue ornament…I will proudly display it in hopes of a win in the upcoming BCS National Championship game! “Yep…it is my Auburn ornament and I do LOVE my Auburn.”

“WAR EAGLE!!!”

Well, time to make another pile…

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, no really fabulous coffee!”
