Christmas is finally and officially over in our house. The tree is at the compost center, the decorations are boxed and put away and the furniture is back in its usual alignment. I feel a little sad about it, mostly because it was a great Christmas. The Doctor Who Christmas special was amazing My family was mostly great fun (though my mom carries with her a stress force field). I got some wonderful presents, including a Doctor Who t-shirt with the all-too true “You Never Forget Your First Doctor” warning and a radio controlled tarantula. And people liked the cookies I liked baking. It’s always hard to box up all the lights and joy.
Still, as Paul pointed out, it’s only 11 months until I can pull it all out again. Happy 2011 everyone!
