This year, it can wait
This year, I've been so busy that I am seriously contemplating waiting until New Year's Day. I know that isn't unusual for most people, but it is for me. Mom said the same thing. I think decorations should be up a full month if you go through the trouble, and I didn't get everything up until December 2 this year. Plus it's all so pretty.
As big a pain it was to get everything up, I wish I had a way to tuck the tree in a closet fully decorated. Maybe I could drag it into the sunroom. ;)
