After the Christmas Home Tour.
Sometimes I just have to laugh. Or wonder what is wrong with me. HA! I see so many people with their homes seemingly (still) all decorated … perfectly, shiny and pretty. They are hosting parties in their homes this weekend, leisurely enjoying making crafts, baking their favorite Christmas cookies, their gifts are all wrapped with cute paper and bows.
That is just how it is at my house!
I’m totally ready! We’re just sitting by the fire singing Christmas carols!
Truth. I’m sorry this is going to get ugly. Feel free to avert your eyes.
I haven’t bought or wrapped hardly any gifts yet. Really. I haven’t baked anything. Our tree has been undecorated by Jack.
Our garland on our stairs is crunchy and leaving bits of evergreen all over the railing and floor.
I killed at least one of our poinsettias.
My slipcovers had to go in the wash (again), so my family room is torn apart. It got so messy I had to keep the blinds shut. Just in case a blogger with a zoom lens was driving by.
Dogs are walking all over the furniture. Now you know why I have to wash white slipcovers all the time.
What was a really pretty dining room table all set for the holidays during my Christmas tour just got buried in some sort of freak avalanche.
I’m just about to do a massive cleaning frenzy so I can recapture my holiday spirit.
But other than that, I’m READY! WHOO HOO!
So, how are you doing the week before Christmas? REALLY?
HA! It is seriously OK if you are leisurely making crafts, hosting parties and baking gingerbread cookies. Really. I am not jealous ONE BIT. I hope to join you in the festivities. Next week. We just had a little setback and I’ve got a few things left to do around here first. But I have time, right?
