Putting away the Christmas decor is always bittersweet. It seems like more work than putting it all out. This year I decided to leave out anything that was somewhat snowman themed. I think I'll wait until the first week of February to deal with that stuff. I even saved a box with those things in mind. Good-bye Santas. Hello Snowmen.
Now to deal with all the other empty spaces left behind. Put up the same things or try something different. I certainly have lots of "stuff" to choose from. Forty-two years of marriage accumulation provides many creative solutions. But for the moment (or next few days), I'm just going to enjoy the vacant spaces.
