the decoration dilemma & other pet peeves…

My problem is that I spend too much of my ever-so-valuable time trying to decorate for Christmas. I decorate and redecorate over and over and over again in order to make my bedroom & home just perfect for Christmas. It really, really bothers me if something isn’t just perfect when it comes to decorations. This leads me to my current problem. I do not want to take the decorations down. I mean, ok, if I spent all this time trying to decorate to attain this perfect look, it just makes me want to cry anytime I even think about taking them down. The politically correct time to take Christmas decorations down, according to, would be after the Epiphany, which is January 6th. So, clearly I still have time. Right?

Here is an example of why January 6th is clearly not enough time. Last year, I spent a day (literally, from the time after I ate breakfast until right before I went to bed) setting up my intricate snow village that I have been given countless pieces to. The snow village is North Pole themed and contains at least eight different buildings, a fully-working sledding hill for miniature people to enjoy sledding down, and an abundance of Christmas trees and fake snow to scatter throughout the village. Simply putting up this village was such a feat that I felt just like I do now ~ this was so much work, it deserves to stay up just a littlleeee bit longer. That little bit longer that in my mind seemed like it would be a couple days turned into a couple of weeks. The weeks turned into months. And finally, on May 23rd, 2013, my North Pole snow village came down. (:

So, here is how my room is decorated. Now, ask yourself, would I want to take this down if I was living in this? Then, my friend, you will understand my conflicted feelings of the moment. I mean, come on, who doesn’t want to be surrounded by Christmas lights when they fall asleep at night?

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that actually understands what they’re
    discussing online. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. A lot more people must read
    this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
