For some reason...it was really difficult to take the Christmas decor down. I just don't remember it being that hard. Yes...a little work..I remember that, but not this back breaking misery. This seemingly never ending job. I did hear a few calls for "HEP!! HEP!! out there..but by then all I could do was limp over, look in (holding my aching back) see everything all organized on the floor at Shelia's, (Note Songs) gasp at how great her's looked ...and limp back home. I did offer her my loving sympathy...but I tell you, that's about all I had to offer!!
It was terrible. Horrific! But..it's done.
Now the first thing I want to do is say "NEVER AGAIN!" but I know full well that's a crock, because I WILL do it again.
Now I know why my mother stopped doing it. I remember feeling sorry for her..and thinking "that day will never come for me. Ever!" But..
I feel it creeping up on me. I have friends already that didn't even put up a tree. Now I think I am beginning to understand.
Next Christmas I will need some encouraging words I think. Please be there for me...ok? :)
Love and hugs...
