It's Out-A-Here

As much as I love decorating the house for Christmas. I also LOVE getting it all taken down, and the fresh feeling it brings into the house.

Here is the kitchen island all filled with things for boxing up.

Once it is out of here, I hesitate to put anything on bookcases, table tops, etc., just because it feels so clean with it all gone.
But if you look real close, you can spot a lot of dirt filtering down from the ceiling in the family room. As we speak the roof is loudly and methodically being nailed down. There is no insulation or anything above 1/2 of the ceiling in the family room so it has been a mess the past 3 days. This should be the end of it today as they move on to different places on the roof.
Then to tackle the garage/attic when they - the roofers- are all done. If you think I insinuated that Christmas is all put away and done, you are wrong because you should see my garage.
That is for another time and place.


  1. Hey at least you've it it all in one area. That counts, right?


  2. I'm envious. I still have one room left that is only partially dismantled. I actually looked at it today and said (out loud to nobody) "I'm not doing this anymore today." It'll get there.

  3. When we moved into the house in 1994 (can you believe it's been that long?) the inspector told us, "Roof's good for ten to fifteen years." That's about what we got - minus a little leak here and there.
