Motivate me!!!!

Somebody, please? I really need some motivation. Is this the January blues? Post holiday blues? Kids are back in school blues? Or is it just the "I need to take down my Christmas tree and decorations" blues? I think I'm betting on the last. Why is putting up decorations fun and exciting, but putting them all away such a huge chore? All week I've been telling myself it needs to get done, and have succeeded at procrastinating all week. Procrastinating is a very special skill I have. So will tonight be the night? Guess I'll decide later.

It would certainly be good to get it done tonight, so I don't have to waste a perfectly good three day weekend doing chores. I used to think it was silly to have a holiday so soon after the holidays. But now I feel like I need a holiday to recover from my holiday!

I don't even like decorating BEFORE the holidays anymore. A tree never would have made an appearance if my husband didn't drag it up from the basement. He also put everything away this year. What a guy, eh?

I've got the inspiration-sucking blues, or whatever, too. I hope you find some motivation soon!

ok... maybe we are separated at birth... it's the 20?th of January and mine are still up!!!

I'm TOTALLY avoiding it... pretending like I don't even SEE them. I did take the wreath off the front door Sunday though!!!
