A depressing day!
You know the song "I cry the day I take the tree down"? Today we put all our christmas decorations away for the year. I did'nt quite cry but I do think it is pretty depressing when everything is gone. Our house looks and feels very empty now. I tried to argue with Chris to keep them up until after New Years. but I lost. Chris' Mom usually takes her tree down the day after christmas and my family keeps it up until after the new year but, I figured if I was going to have help this weekend, today was the day. After it was all gone Chris was saying don't you think it feels so much better? NO! I just keep looking around and have decided I need to start investing in more "every day" decor. My mantle has nothing on it and I have become a custom to having stuff on it for the last three months. Our house just feels empty. And I just keep wondering why did'nt it bother me the first four months we have lived here? Anyhoo I was talking to my mom earlier today and she told me she feels the same way. Does anyone else feel this way after christmas or is it just in my family?
