Things You Can Do When You're Bored

Disclaimer: The information below that I am sharing with you, and I hesitate to admit this, is very, very embarrassing for me. Without this blog, I don't know if I would ever own up to this.

Tonight's project:

Put Away The Easter Decorations

Yes, I said it right. I did not stutter. I'm a holiday decoration slacker. I did really good and got the Christmas decorations away in a timely manner. Easter came around, and I got the decorations out and on display. But by the time Easter was over, hubs started his remodel of the dining room. He put our chest freezer into the hallway (plugged in, of course) while he worked on painting one of the walls. So I was unable to get into our attic to pull down the tote for our Easter decorations (the ladder and entry into the attic is in the hallway, right where the freezer was being stored).

After the freezer moved back into the dining room, I did really well and pulled down the Easter tote. And put it into the living room where the decorations were at.

And here it's been sitting ever since. *sigh*

So I promised myself that one of the projects that I would do while hubs was vacationing in Minnesota was put away the Easter decorations.

And if you don't believe me, here's a couple pics of some of the decorations still up on display.

Yes, I am still very, very embarrassed about this. But I got it done! It took me just 30 minutes to take everthing down, wrap up the breakables, put it all in the tote, and back into the attic. Whew!! I couldn't help but think, "why didn't I do this sooner?!!"

To all of you who still have your Christmas tree up, I salute you!


  1. I am a total holiday decoration slacker, too. Thankfully, I have a husband who takes care of putting them up and taking them down and I just sit back and enjoy them!

  2. My husband knows better than to touch any of my decorations, lol. Well, not completely true. He takes care of the outside Christmas lights, and as long as I handle the ornaments, he'll put up & take down the Christmas tree & lights. Other than that, he's afraid of breaking any of my decorations, so it's up to me to put them away. But that's okay, because he is really good at helping with laundry & dishes. :)
