Happy New Year!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Happy New Year everyone!

My New Year's tradition is to take the tree down while I'm watching the Rose Parade. When I was in high school and lived in California, I actually went to the Rose Parade. Of course since we had to get there the night before to reserve our spots on the street, and all the New Year's Eve revelry kept us up, we pretty much ended sleeping through the parade!

So my tackle for the day will be to take the tree down. Guess I don't need to post pictures since I posted earlier what my tree looked like. You can imagine what it will look like gone. :) I love having the tree up, but I'm glad to take it down, too, and reclaim some of my living room space.

This is a popular tackle today! :) Mine will come down tonight or tommorow. I'm ready to reclaim some space, too.

I think my tree will come down this evening.

Thanks for visiting my blog. How's the adjustment to small town life going? We've talked about moving somewhere smaller with a cheaper housing market.

As much as I love Christmas taking the tree down is a great feeling. The stress of Christmas goes away with the removal of the tree, and its a great way to start the new year.
Happy New Year to you!

Yay, the tree's gone, the floor's vacuumed (the vacuum emptied three times!).

We're loving small town life and the slower pace of living.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! We have trouble with those crazy game boxes, too. They never seem to last long. I saw on a blog somewhere that someone had some plastic long and thin storage boxes perfect for games like Sorry and Monopoly. (One game per box.) I'd like to find me some of those. Anyway, I hope your tackle went well & you enjoyed the parade.

Happy New Year!

I was just telling my friend about tackle it Tuesday, I think we're going to try doing this as well. Not sure I want to post pics yet, kind of lazy on that point. :) Took our tree down too, not because it needed it right NOW oh no, it had to come down to put up the attachment that makes our bike into a stationary bike. Oh joy.
