841. Taking down and packing away holiday decorations

Finally, the new year has settled in and the hype of the winter holidays are over.  We are finishing off the first week into the new year and the glimmer and excitement of Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, New year’s, & Three King’s Day are all over…so as most would tend to put away their holiday decor either the day after Christmas or New Year’s, I wait till after Jan. 6th.  In part because it’s the lasting touch of the new year’s light and Three King’s Day.  What holiday is that?! – take a look here We Wise Merry Men.

However, the distressing part comes when you have to take down the tree and pack away all the decor; grab the boxes and start taking it all down!  Finding extra spaces for the newly accumulated ornaments, the new linen, and also having to take down the lights off the roof, trees, and off the mantle.  It can be quite a laborious task so go ahead and take your time this weekend and get to packing!

Awful!

845. Writing the old year down on paper

 

Did you forget the year has changed already?!

It’s quite an easy mistake when you’re swiftly writing out a check or filling out a form, just make sure not to do it again!

Happy NEW YEAR 2010 2011!

847. Happy New Year! I’m bored now…

So after all of the winter holiday hype is over: Christmas Channukah, Kwanzaa (don’t forget we still have 3 King’s Day Jan. 6th!!) and New Year’s Eve, now for most it’s just fell short into a new year of resolutions and just excitement that makes you want to have a long winter’s nap and for some children that are just dreading the near return back to school from winter vacation the “b”word of boredom starts to emerge.

What do you do now that new year has come in and you’ve burned up the excitement of your holiday toys…..any ideas?!   Just sitting in the room and looking out the window letting out a long sigh….ughhhhhhhhhhhhh……..how awfully boring!!
