Success du jour

Number of Rubbermaid bins and cardboard boxes of Christmas decorations moved down the stairs from the Flamingo Loft: 8

Number of falls, missteps, and stumbles in the process: 0

Win.

I learned to be cautious while carrying things on stairs back in 1996, when missing a step while carrying a full laundry basket down the basement stairs left me with a broken foot. Today, I was extra careful. My friend Jonathan Adams is in the early days of his recovery from a broken hip, and I really didn't want to find myself in a position to share recovery notes with him.

The eight bins and boxes are now on the first floor of the Zeppelin Hangar along with the five bins and boxes that never made it up to the Flamingo Loft following Christmas 2013. That's a container for each of the 12 days of Christmas, plus one to grow on. Hmmm...perhaps I will make more progress trimming back on my trimmings this year. I started out full of Good Intentions on that front last year, but ended up pretty much trimming only the tree itself.

Onward! Here's to joy-filled holidays for all who celebrate any or all of the plentitude of holidays accompanying this time of year.

This is an annual debate Jim and I have. I store the holiday decorations in a large closet upstairs. I've been suggesting for years that we ought to store decorations in his office closet on the first floor, and store most of the stuff from the office closet upstairs as he doesn't really use much of it at a time. I have a bad feeling until I fall bringing the stuff from upstairs downstairs, he'll never compromise on this (he's generally quite reasonable, but not on this issue).

We have 6 plastic tubs of Xmas decorations, which I hauled down from a second floor closet. (He carries down the tree, thank heavens.) I find it hard to imagine having much more Xmas decor than what we have now, since there are a million ornaments on the tree.
