I finished decorating the tree. Yesterday.
I just took the last of the Halloween decorations to the attic. There is no longer a fog generator under the chair in the dining room. Any fog you see from now on is the real thing.
I finally killed the last elf on the Santa’s Snowball game. It was a major disappointment. All I got was 12 more elves.
There is nothing in the house to eat but stale cookies and ingredients for recipes that I didn’t get around to making. If you can build a meal around dried apricots, dipping chocolate and a half a cup of small curd cottage cheese, tell me now.
When the last of the Christmas cards go out, you’ll know that Valentine’s Day is almost here.
