Time Flies

Is it really January 12th? I was doing bills and about fell over when I realized the 15th is Thursday. I think it is bothering me especially because while I got my Christmas tree down promptly for recycling as I usually do, I've gotten stalled on getting my nativity collection put away. And it is almost the 15th of January! I'm in Half-in-Half-out-Christmas-Decoration Limbo! Argh!

I also kept thinking that I had a really long time to get my book group assignment read and now all of a sudden I only have 2 days.

I think a lot of people must have been taken by surprise by the long holiday and not going back to school till the 5th, because it seems like I'm seeing more decorations still up than usual. Maybe I'm just hoping for absolution.

  1. Yeah, I'm still in that limbo, too. I've only just barely given up the idea of sending out late Christmas cards in the guise of New Years cards. :)

  3. A lot of people in our neighborhood still turn their Christmas lights on in the evenings... I think everyone wants to hold onto that Christmasy feeling.:)
