The ticking clock and Christmas in September

Tick tock….tick tock….tick tock

The sound is deafening.

 Stop!

STOP NOW,  I want to scream.

There’s just not enough time left.

To sort through all the accumulated “stuff”

from the last 23 years.

What to toss, what to give away, what to pack.

And once that’s decided, where do I put it  all?

Twenty three years of living on three floors of house. (actually 2 levels of living

and 1 level of storage.)

 

I admit it’s overwhelming.

I was so much younger when I last did this.

It was a happy, joyful time. I was head over heels in love with the new

life that awaited as I moved into this fixer upper.

 

This time is so different. Too many unknowns.

Like,  will the closing be on time for this house?

Where will the next house be????

And what about financing???

 

STOP THE CLOCK!!!!!

Sigh…. I will get it done.. I WILL GET IT DONE!

Now, is that more convincing?

 

December 2013 Christmas…my last year for Christmas decorating here.

Get ready for many pictures of the outside.

Well, I’m leaving while on top.

Did you see the #1?  Did cha,  did cha, did cha?

That will be the last time the Garden Club will

be judging my decorating efforts.

 

All good things must come to an end, so the proverb goes.

December 2013 was indeed a good season.
