Black Friday starts the decorating process for me. I get out a box and go through it .... I remember where this or that came from .... which was a gift and what was I thinking moments .... Most of the things were easy to find ... the nativity came home ... the wreath ... the doll tree ... then I hit a stumbling block ... I could not find the doll tree decorations ... I finally admitted defeat and went shopping and added to the stash to save my sanity.... as these things go I found 1 of the missing boxes.... the next trip after I went shopping I kept the new treasures as a reminder of this Christmas... this storage unit will most likely be a fact of my life for a long time ... it is my “new basement” ... the professional movers hid things in the 2nd storage unit..I can’t wait to get rid of it!! This year it was a 5 day process …. 7 to 8 boxes at a time! I can do this!
