It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

(…but not for long).

I can’t believe Christmas Eve is already upon us. I’ve been listening to Christmas music since Halloween, the tree has been up for a month (over two weeks with presents underneath), and Randy and I have a huge pile of Christmas cards that we’ve received.

And tomorrow, we’ll head over the river (well, technically the canal) and through the woods to grandmother’s house (well, Mom and Dad’s) for Christmas Eve and Christmas on Cape Cod with my parents.

But before that, despite all of the holiday cheer that’s been practically oozing out of me for the past two months, I’m hoping to take down the Christmas decorations. I know, I know…it’s not even Christmas yet. But since we’re heading to Key West the day after Christmas and won’t be back until January 6th, I suspect the last thing I’ll want to do upon our return is have a Christmas tree welcoming me back home. Well, not so much the Christmas tree, but the labor involved with removing ornaments and putting them all in their respective boxes and such. I don’t want to have to look forward to that.
