Go Away Christmas!!


I enjoy Christmas time.  I enjoy the colorful lights, decorating, wrapping gifts and the tons of crafting opportunities this time of year brings.  

I look forward to the time off from our routine and the way the house smells like a mixture of homemade treats, sugary gingerbread houses and a fresh Christmas tree.

But I can only take a few weeks of Christmas before it becomes annoying.  As of today Christmas has officially become annoying.  I want the sugary treats out of my house.  I want the Christmas decoration put away.  I want all traces of new gifts and the boxes the came in out of my site.  

The bottom line is that I want my normal life back!  Anyone else feeling that way?  Or is it just me who is sick of feeling like I am heading for a sugar coma each evening?

Manana(sorry- no spanish tilde...), it is adios to the tree, the decorations, all of it, and HOLA simplicity of New Year!

oh yes!! Dec 26th - I packed up and put EVERYTHING away - nothing is out- even the outside is packed up! Gingerbread houses - tossed - cookies - tossed - Christmas Cake - well, I can't toss this one - but give me a week. All new toys - put away in bins! Hubbie is still off of work and his crap is EVERYWHERE and driving my skin crazy!!!!!!!!

It always amazes me how quick my love for Christmas becomes my desire to get rid of it all on December 26.

You took the words right out of my keyboard!!!

I truly thought I was the only one.

I turn into Scrooge the very day after Christmas...

I can't wait for this week to be over!


Amen sista!

I hear ya sister. I actually still get comfused during this week that there is ANOTHER holiday approaching. As much as I like being with the family and having time off from work and playing taxi-mom (we get a 3 week break), I want them all to get out of my house and go back to school!!

Kelsey said...

Agreed! I need to stop seeing sales everywhere and feeling like I have to buy this and that! I hate the traffic that is still everywhere and I want my house back, decoration free.

Oh yeah friend! I have no counter or table space because games and new things and boxes are stacked EVERYWHERE!!! I keep wanting it to go away but at the same time am so thankful that the kids got some nice new stuff. It's taking willpower not to start pitching crap in the garbage. My goal is to find a place for everything and get everything in it's place. Hopefully all the Xmas stuff will come down in the next few days. But this is the first year I haven't been itching to take the tree down. I finally have a pretty one! lol

nope, i am exactly the same way. the presents are already put away and i am thinking of dumping all of the homemade goodies off to whomever will take them. though, i am not yet sick of our decorations since we put them up so late!

lisaschaos said...

I hear you! I am ready to take the tree down and get back to normal. :)

Christina said...

Not alone in that! Sales need to stop, and the only reason my decor is still up is I am trying to prove I can keep the decorations up till the new year, but thats our secret in reality I want em out of here!

I think Christmas was too long this year. When you see Christmas trees out with the Halloween costumes there's a problem. To me it has felt like Christmas dragged on and on and on. That's probably why I haven't done a Christmas post, I just wanted it to be finally over and done. And my tree came down Christmas day when we got back home from the In-Laws Christmas thing.
