It's The TREE !!!
Okay, you know how I couldn't find my groove ? And something had stolen it ? It's the TREE!! I know it !! I have never struggled so much to find my groove after the holidays ... and I have never had a tree. (well, not in 20+ years ...) MMhmm. Get it ? Plain as the glitter on the carpet. I think the tree has stolen my groove. And , yes, I realize that it is January 10th and most self-respecting holidayers have taken their trees down. But mine has me flummoxed. Having not put a tree away in over 20 years I am at a loss as to how to deal with the STUFF that seems to have swollen & increased in size like yeasty bread dough. I brought 4 or 5 tidy boxes & bags downstairs and now they have erupted to be a SEA of tissue paper, boxes, plastic cases, just tons of debris !!! My whole extra room upstairs is filled with this stuff and the ornaments & decorations are all downstairs. I have come up with an awesome storage thing that I am going to make ... but I need some stuff cut ... that means delays ... although Charlie has promised that today is the day. Meanwhile the tree sits laughing at me - somewhere in it's branches is my groove. Give it up tree !!!
