Yesterday we took down the Christmas tree. I thought we were kind of sad for having the tree up so long (although we weren't really healthy enough to enjoy it much) because in my family, the tree came down on New Year's Day. Archie expressed surprise at this and said his mom kept their (live) trees up until February! He said she'd take really good care of them and only dismantle them when they were just too far gone. I guess there are still ways my husband can surprise me -- I had no idea.
Now our living room looks kind of different and empty.
