MONughDAY

Day 109

Welcome to my UGH day. I woke up dreading today. It is holiday cleanup day. (At least inside the house.)

Hubby loves Christmas and always hates to let go. This year was harder because of the death of his mom days before Christmas. It did not feel like Christmas at all this year.

So, I have tried to be understanding about leaving the tree up, but it WAS a live tree and now it was more like Jacob Marley — dead as a door-nail.

Decorating is always so joyful, but taking everything down and repacking it for a year is NOT fun. Thanks to Marie Kondo, however, a few things are going to be donated rather than going back into storage.

I am happy to be putting the pictures of the grandkids back on the mantelpiece. I have missed those faces!

Dinner has already been prepared. We will have the 15-bean soup I cooked last night after the power came back on.

Tomorrow I will do a thorough cleaning and get things back to a little more normal.

It’s time to plow ahead into 2019.

  1. It’s always a good thing to move into the new year. Before we left Asheville, we put away all of our minimal Christmas things — it seemed fitting. But I was surprised to see so much Christmas-oriented merchandise and decoration here in Quebec through Jan. 12- 15, or so,(then the Valentine’s Day merchandise appeared).

    1. Our cold weather has lulled us into being lax about the decorations. Today may be a little warmer but it is still hard to believe we are only weeks from Valentine’s Day–not a holiday we participate in.

  2. Today was an odd sort of day. It was so (brrrrr) cold outside I could feel it inside. The day was grey with clouds masking the sun. Hubster returned to work and his puppies missed him as did I. Wish I could remember where I stored my SAD lamp so I could make myself glad. 🙂
