The Christmas decorations have been put away for another year (except for the porch decorations, because I am waiting for the weekend to tackle that chore. And, you know, because I am lazy). My mud room is still a giant mess but; I can close the door and, look at that! Problem fixed!
I'm lying, of course; that mess buzzes around my psyche like a fly over a fresh turd, but! I can pretend. Plus, the new timer for my washer should be here annnnyyy day now and I will be able to get that room back in order. In the meantime, I am threatening to introduce The Teenager to the laundromat which will actually be good practice for her prior to leaving for college.
And, yes, Teenager, that means that I won't be doing your laundry when you visit. Fair warning.
Where was I going with this?
Oh, right; the holiday decorations are gone! Naturally this has spurred my desire to see spring arrive as soon as possible and, apparently I am not alone: the department stores are already selling bikinis. And, I saw Easter candy in the grocery store the other day.
It's going to be a long three months, is what I'm thinking.
