Don't want to let it go!!

Well, I know it's time, but I don't want to do it! It's not the work, I just look at that as one of those things that I have to do. But it's the fact that I'm going to miss the holidays!! I LOVE everything about the holidays. I especially like the way my house looks and smells. It seems so much warmer and cozier with all the decorations. I know lots of people that can't wait to start tearing things down the day after Christmas, but I am NOT one of those. I would leave them up all year long, but I'd get a hard time from my family and alot of funny looks from my friends. Oh well.....I'm at least gonna take it slow and make it last as long as possible. Today I cleared off one spot.....and it took me a long time. That is also reason for concern. If I have to re-arrange every spot I clear off, this could take me a LONG time. I suppose I'm just gonna have to try and find some things to make the house seem warm and cozy all year round, bite my lip and go for it. I'm sure I can find some great ideas on my favorite blogspots! Better go see what's new out there!

I know how you feel! I started taking mine down today and even hubby was a little sad...I had to set my bloggy to private but if you email me at I can send you an invite that way you can still view it. I hope you have a Happy New Year!
