What Was I Thinking??

Yesterday started the annual period in my life I call my "What Was I Thinking" period. Actually I call it my "What the H*** Was I Thinking?" period, but I didn't want to offend anyone. It's when I start de-Christmassing the house. I have eight Christmas trees to undecorate. I have hundreds of ornaments to wrap in bubblewrap. I end up filling up 12 of those big rubbermaid storage tubs with Christmas stuff. And, all the empty storage tubs are (where else?) up in the attic and after I fill them they have to go (where else?) up in the attic.

This wouldn't be quite so bad if I weren't right in the midst of getting ready for the Nashville Needlework Market. I have 3500 chart to put together before the end of January.

So, why do I do this to myself every single year?? I truly haven't a clue. I love Christmas. I love decorating for Christmas. I love every part of Christmas. Maybe it's because I was born on December 27th. Christmas is in my genes. Or something.

LOL, you're not the only one. While I don't have as many trees as you do, all my decorations tend to be lights on the house and yard...and in my bedroom. One year for Christmas, my husband decorated my computer and desk with blinking lights. I was also born in December, but I don't know whether to attribute this love of Christmas lights to the child within...or the idiot. lol
