It hits every year, about 6 hours after the Christmas frenzy. I just want to clean up, clear out and THROW out. All the hidden places in my home that have been storing Christmas gifts anywhere from six months to six days have been cleared out, the recipients of those gifts happily (hopefully) carting them off to fill up their own spaces.
We have plastic garbage bags stacked in piles next to the already filled garbage can. The recycle garbage can has already been collected. TL was sneaking around in the middle of the night, surreptiously stuffing our extra reyclables into other people's partially empty containers. Friday I will be ready for the "double dump." Double dumping means I watch for the garbage truck, and when our container is emptied, I scurry out with another six full garbage bags, pile them into the container and drag it across the street where I leave it to wait for the next garbage truck go round. Do you think the driver knows my deceit????
I want to take down all the decorations, clean out all the closets, and organize every drawer. The feeling only lasts about a week, when it disappears, only to reappear about six hours after next year's Christmas.
Therefore, I'm striking while the iron is hot......so to speak.
I'm a middle aged lady, young at heart, wife of Terry, mother of 7 great kids, grandma of 13 of the cutest, smartest, and most charming grandkids in the world, including one angel baby in heaven, chief cook and bottle washer, driver,& counselor. I love to be creative, learn new things, the color red, clutter-free spaces, chocolate, naps, office supply stores, fabric stores, & taking too many photos, just to name a few.
