We finally got around to taking down the Christmas decorations today. It reached the desperation point when Mabel walked into the den and placed a birthday present for me under the tree.
And my birthday is not for two weeks.
I think Mabel just figured that since the tree was still up on January 5, there was every reason to think it would linger for a couple more weeks.
It is interesting how plain, nearly Amish, the AtwoodZoo looks after taking all the decorations down. Maybe I’ll be inclined to grow a big old Amish beard now…
