But do you really?
The Christmas holidays and New Years are just the beginning (no pun intended). As we move into February, there’s a whole slew of holidays approaching. Yesterday we had Ground Hogs Day. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. March will bring St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. Earth Day and Arbor Day is in April … as well as Australia’s ANZAC Day. Then there’s Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, the 4th of July … cripes, every flippin month has got something going on.
Makes it difficult to get into a writing routine, if you ask me. Working full time and trying to get into any type of schedule is tough. Don’t know how half the authors I know manage to do it. As I said, took me forever to get the Christmas decorations down, and now its time to put up Valentine’s stuff. Wouldn’t normally bother … but when you have a child in the house, its sorta expected. Just when we get that stuff down, its time to put up Easter decorations. Never seems to end. Yes, I do enjoy seeing the cheery hearts, and little bunnies. It’s the actual putting up and taking down that I find to be a pain in the butt.
Sounds like I’m complaining (and yes, I suppose I am), and I really shouldn’t because nothing can really beat the total rearrangement of the house that Christmas decorating entails. Everything after that should feel like a piece of cake.
So, how ‘bout you? How long did it take to get your house back in order following the Christmas holidays? This is the latest that ever I’ve taken to put everything back to normal … and I haven’t even finished that yet. Some of the stuff that I put away to make room for decorating are still in boxes, waiting to be put back on shelves and tables. Might even take me another week or so to manage that.
