Family Tree

Clump #137:  Take Christmas tree out to the curb for recycling and put away Christmas decorations.

Being at the hospital with my mom every day has been draining.  I realize I am putting off the paper clumping that I wrote about in my last post. If a tree falls in a house because it is curbside pick-up day, does it still qualify as a clump?  Probably not.  A clump should be something I wouldn’t be doing as business as usual.  I’m allowing myself a day of denial before I revisit the procrastinated paper trail tomorrow.

I’m not ready!  This is what happens when you put off getting a tree until right before Christmas.  Ready or not, we bid the fine specimen farewell tonight with gratitude for its beauty and stately grandeur.  At least at this [too] early date, our younger daughter is here to help with the putting away of the decorations.


And out the door it goes, with a small, fake, fiber optic tree looking on. (Don’t look so smug … you’re going back in the box next.)


Then all the decorations just seemed wrong, still hanging around.


So long until next year.

  1. You go girl. Missed you yesterday. We plan to meet again Feb 7, hope you can join us.
    5 other Brookwood neighbors have expressed interest, but none have actually joined us in person (yet). With respect to your mom, please be gentle with yourself! I’ll be posting a blogging book review on our club blog soon.
