Last Christmas

And I say “Last Christmas” because it was last Christmas and this will be my last post about Christmas.
It was a good one. A very good one. Here we are the weekend after Christmas standing in front of my sister’s tree on our whirlwind tour of Dallas. My mother spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with us for the very first time (without it being the bigger family all here) and we had a great time. A great turkey and dressing lunch (if I do say so myself as the head cook) and naps every day. We watched Smokey and the Bandit because Mark got it as a Christmas president from his boss and we discovered that, no, that movie hasn’t exactly held up well, but we enjoyed seeing young handsome Burt Reynolds and very cute, young, and adorable Sally Field. Their parts held up well on the celluloid.

And now Christmas is just a memory except that I still have a nicely lit tree in my living room. I’m reluctant to let it go! I like it! And I still need to do a put-off-every-year chore of discarding some of the Christmas stuff. We’ve accumulated a lot of Christmas ornamentation that has no sentimental value to us and we don’t have room to use it. We put out just about the right amount of decorations this year, so I want to do my best to box up the rest and take it to Goodwill or the Salvation Army and let someone else enjoy it. I thought that would get done this weekend, but the weekend went oh so fast, as usual.
