...oh, Valentine's Day Tree! How lovely are your branches!
The Christmas tree is still up in the Darling house, and frankly, I don't want to take it down. I hate taking the tree down (it's artificial, so it can stay up without looking depressing), because once you remove it, the living room looks sad and lonely. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like our living room, and our furniture isn't too bad, but when you remove the Christmas tree in any house, the room looks less festive than it did before. A Christmas tree makes the house look warm and cheerful.
I felt Mr. Darling out about leaving it up for a little while longer, and he said that I might as well leave it up until we move for his residency... which will probably be in June. JUNE!! I have officially gotten the green light to leave a Christmas tree in my living room for five more months!! Yahoo!
So, I'm thinking, rather than just making us look lazy, I could make us look abnormally festive by decorating the tree for Valentine's Day, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, etc. I'm not even joking about this. I am seriously considering buying a bunch of hearts and hanging them all over the tree. My neighbors (and some of you, perhaps) might mock me, but I'll be happy, so who cares?
Don't forget that tomorrow is Totally Awkward Tuesday! Spend a few minutes now recalling an awkward moment that you've repressed because it's painfully embarrassing, and then write about it for tomorrow!
