Signs that Christmas is over

December 29, 2005

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.
