Back At It!

Feeling better.
Saturday I had to take a trip out, we seemed to have had undergarment issues while I was sick. I'm down for a few days and everything the boys own gets ripped, torn or full of holes. So Saturday I ventured out to Wal-mart for the first time out of the house in a week.
I needed some walking so I parked at the far end of the parking lot and weaved my way in and out of several of the stores along the way to WallyWorld. As I walked the world seemed different, new, fresh. There seemed to be less people and the air a little crisper. Perhaps it was the cold medicine, perhaps it was seeing the outside for the first time in a few days, either way it was nice to be back out and about.
I also made a visit to the lego room and realised that the Christmas ornaments and tree are still sitting in their boxes in the corner of that room.
I forgot I planned to clean the attic up before putting everything back up there. That was 24 days ago, before work got busy, before a trip to NH for a funeral, a trip across state with 28 middle schoolers and before I caught the flu. So now, I'm doing what I do best- avoiding cleaning it up and blogging instead!
Trust me cleaning up my attic is not high on my list, when I was getting the Christmas stuff down I happen to notice several boxes gone through and not put back together properly- apparently one of my children and his friend spent some time up there looking through stuff and loving it!
Doe anyone else have any Christmas stuff hanging around still?

Glad you are feeling better! No Christmas decorations left but still plenty of boxes to unpack from our move in November - yuck!

I think the world does look different after you've been sick for a long time. When I was out for 2 weeks with chicken pox, it was crazy to actually get to see people after feeling like a leprotic prisoner.

Glad you're feeling better though!
We need to go out to lunch some time :)
