My mother’s comment reminded me that I was going to include my rationale for seasonal decorations in September. :)
1: It is Septmber!
2: I am going out of town next week and will be gone for 2.5 weeks. I’m also leaving for the Christmas holidays on December 13th. So my reasoning goes like this: In order for me to fully enjoy my Christmas decorations, I need to get them up promptly the day after Thanksgiving. Therefore, in order to get full enjoyment out of my autumn decorations, I need to make sure they’re up before I leave town this month.
3: I want to make sure they’re up this week so that Ryan can enjoy them when I’m gone. He likes the seasonally-appropriate house, too. :)
4: Sheri sent me enough fall candles that I can enjoy them every night. And you can only smell spiced pumpkin for so long before you get itchy about decorating.
5: Since I’ll be going to the beach in September and October, I figured I’d have to work extra-hard at convincing myself that we’re moving along in the calendar year. (How do people out here keep track of time, anyway?)
Okay. That’s all.
(You can laugh, Mom.)
