CHRISTMAS DOWN!

Amen.

I bribed my son with hard cold cash to take it down and pack it out.

And I went to bed.

I am not ashamed.
HAPPY 2011!!!

I threatened to kick Adam in the testicles. Different approaches, same result.

Kim said...

Mildred said...

Way to go!

Saimi said...

Cold hard cash works for me, except I had nobody to pay me. Oh well, mine came down anyway!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Very smart plan. I am sure I can pay my daughter to help me. I won't tackle it for another week though.

Queenie Jeannie said...

LOL! That's funny!

I'll be taking mine down on Monday when Bella goes back to school. Normally I like it up for my birthday, but I just want my too small already livingroom back!

Kazzy said...

Feels good, huh? I took mi e down on the 27th, but I leave my artificial tree and lights only up all through January.

Lisa said...

No, you are NOT ashamed...YOU ARE WOMAN, WIFE AND MOTHER...and smart. Let's not forget smart.

Cherie said...

You are ONE SMART COOKIE!!!!

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

That's how I got the tree up and decorated. It wasn't cash but I did get my daughter and her friend a shake at Sonic.

Nothing wrong with a little bribery.

Kirsten said...

I hadn't thought of that! Is it breaking the Sabbath if I try that on Paul today?? Hmmmmmmmmmm

Momza said...

LOL! Love it!
We're doing that today...
ready to get on with 2011!
Happy New Year!

Sherrie said...

Send him my way Please? I will pay well. You are a very smart woman! :)

Mikki said...

Ours is all down too. It came down WEdnesday. I usually wait til New Years day, but I was ready this year.
Happy New Year Tauna! Hope it's a great one for you.

T said...

dang... I was late getting it up... and now I'm late getting it down...

why mess with a good system?

besides, I told ManOfTheHouse that the lights could stay up another week (it was bitter cold... yes, I'm a wimp) - so what would be the point of putting the rest of it away???

Victoria said...

Mine is coming down tomorrow. I have no one to bribe, money or no. I am going to have to do it myself.

Yvonne said...

I wish someone was here to bribe--I'D BE DOING THE SAME THING.

Happy 2011.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

I took ours down sooner than I have ever done before.

And it felt so good!

Course, I had to do it all myself. At least I was able to glare my hubby into carrying the totes up and down the stairs.

Because of my weak condition and all that. :D

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hee hee

Do you think your son would be bribed again. By a dummy? In Utah?

Beth at Aunties said...

Today is the day! ahhh ick!
I would hire him and I would double the pay!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

My hubs took it down ASAP also... but I didn't pay him with cash. LOL @ Kristina's comment!

Maybe this will be the year we hang out again! Maybe with Wendy and Mrs. Bakow... and Serene.. and barbs... and etc...

Valerie said...

Happy new year!!!!

Emmy said...

Oh I would so do the same if my kids were capable. Ours is down but I had to do a lot of work.

RatalieNose said...

Taking them down is the depressing part! Having someone else do them is what's best for your mental health!

gigi said...

Oh, that Kristina, P.!!!!

Money works every time around here!
