Why oh why do I always wait until the last day of vacation to do this. I am heading back to school today and I spent yesterday "de-Christmasing" the house. Actually I only got the living room done. I still have to pack up the kitchen. It took me hours to take things down and put the old back up. Rich complained about the five minutes it took him to carry the 8 totes and the tree up to the attic. (Not that I would want to do that job!). Our living room looks so bare. I think you can hear an echo in there if you try LOL!
Speaking of putting the old back up, here is a trick I learned years ago after so many years of struggling. When I hang my lace panel curtains back up I put a piece of scotch tape over the end of the wire rod and the lace doesn't get caught on the sharp edges. It just slides right into place. Please tell me I am not the last one to know about this :)
I also made a turkey dinner last night. I expect the have the leftovers all week. I'll make a turkey pie and then some turkey soup. My husband and son won't eat the soup but my friend that works with me will. I always send soup home to her husband as well. He appreciates my cooking!!!
