Just for the record, our Christmas tree has been at our house now for six days, in the stand for five days, had a string and a half of lights on it for three days. Stay tuned.
I have been able to get my mantle decorated, although I made sure I removed all breakable items until we get the den straight for fear something would get knocked off the mantle. I have decorations on my coffee table but you would be hard pressed to see them amongst the boxes that need to go back to the attic. Bottom line, this is a work in progress.
I hope Santa comes in the back door, because if he comes down the chimney, he would find a chair in front of the fireplace. But, I have faith that by Christmas Eve, the tree will be decorated, the boxes will be back in the attic, the chair in front of the fireplace will be moved to its proper place, and all will be right with the world. Yes, I believe.
Most people think that saying, "I believe", refers to the magic of Christmas. In my case it refers to the chances I will ever be able to walk through my den again. But, as I have often said, if not, there is always drugs and therapy.
