Happy New Year! I hope you are all getting back into the normal routine. I am TRYING DESPERATELY to get things organized. Today was huge for me. Those of you on Facebook have already seen these photos, but I thought I'd share one of the many tasks I had to conquer today.
Take a look at our Christmas tree.
To the left is a photo pre expiration date.
We (I) forgot to put water in it and went to Vermont for five days. When we returned it was a sight to behold.
Every time I took off an ornament another pile of needles fell to the ground.
I think I filled about 15 vacuum cleaner bags.
By the time I wrestled the little sucker out to the patio there were absolutely ZERO needles left on it.
My husband is too embarrassed to put it out on the curb. He wants to dismember it "Sopranos" style and stuff the parts in a trash bag. Then he wants me to dump it in a swamp.
I, on the other hand, decided to photograph it and post it for all the world to see. They say opposites attract!!!
Order is restored to the rear right corner of our family room.
Stay tuned for more Christmas Break adventures including traveling 6 1/2 hours in the car with a puking child, tennis tournament details, a visit from the world's wildest children and how I'm coping with not exercising for over 10 days. You won't want to miss the next episode of Caffeine Court. (Did you hear? ABC and CBS have both offered me a deal to make a show out of my life! They heard about all my wild antics and think it would be a huge hit. (NOT!)
