Just a thought

I read the other day about someone taking their Christmas decorations down already, well it was the day after Christmas. I find this shocking. Don't get me wrong, you can do whatever you want. But I like to wait. I don't want the magic times over that soon. It always makes me sad to take them down. I have to wait until the Boy goes back to school. I don't want him to see me cry about it. Yes, I said I get sad. So this year let's try to keep the magic going all year. I normally don't do resolutions, maybe this year should be different. There are many things to consider. I mean there's a special feeling around the holidays, we should resolve to keep that feeling all year right?  So, I have some thinking to do about this. Resolutions or no resolutions. What do you do? I guess they can give you something to work for. Some motivation, I know I could use some of that right about now. I always looked at resolutions as a way of disappointing myself. You know if you fail. I need to think more positively. Which seems strange because I have always thought of myself as an optimist. Hmmm more to think about. Maybe we should call them something else. Something more,. oh I don't know, I can't quite put my finger on it yet, important maybe. Something that makes it seem more important than something you do this time of year just because. Your thoughts.....?


  1. I put my decorations up the last week of November every year and take them down on New Years Day. I like a full 30 plus day of decorations as love Christmas and the lights. Even more important as we have my Mom over for company on 30th and 31st. As for resolutions I hate that word. Last year I made a Mantra or guide for our next year. This year I want to have more fun so the list is more a bucket list of things we hope to do in 2013. Cheers and Happy Holidays

  2. I like that. A bucket list for the year. Sounds more positive! I was just about to read your post on this!
