Everyone will be pleased to know that the lights came down TODAY...March 11th.....
I hadn't even read my wife's post...http://some-times-i-wish.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-house-was-free-of-christmas-lights.html, but I did hear Rachel call and tell Missy she was going to come take the lights down....
I took my neighbor up on his offer to let me use his ladder and took them down today. It took all of 10 minutes so yes, it's embarassing to to be taking them down in March, but I'm glad it's done.
I almost took them down between Christmas and New Years, but thought that was too quick. In hindsight, that's what should have been done. This year won't be as bad b/c I'm not planning on opening any new offices.
Tax Season is an excuse, but that's all it really is. An excuse.
I'm still planning on putting up lights this year after Thanksgiving...........I'm not making any promises as to when they come down.
Next year Missy won't be pregnant, so we'll see what happens.
