So I wrote a song to commemorate my very sad day. Usually, I would postpone this shit as long as humanly possible, but I want to come home from FLORIDA to a clean house and nothing to do but vacation laundry and seashell projects.
Plus with another polar vortex/ice age/death cold coming in a few days, I’d rather just get this shit out of the way.
The Christmas Alma Mater Song (to the tune of the Mickey Mouse Club Alma Mater Song, but shorter. Because I’m lazy.)
Now it’s time
To say goodbye
To all my Christmas trees.
They start with C
See ya real soon
There is no Y
Why? Because we like them.
Pa-cking up the trees.
Forever let us hold the garland high
High high high!
Come along and sing this song
That is melancholy.
Packing up the tree.
As you can see, my apartment is in shambles, so I best stop this blogging nonsense and get to it. Maybe later, if I get enough written incentive and booze, I’ll videotape my song for you.
AWWW. I just took down our outside lights yesterday and was way sad about it. My 4yo was much sadder about it and the fact that the tree is in the yard waiting for recycling to pick it up is downright depressing. I love your song though!! Also, I’m jealous of your wrapping paper bin. That’s awesome.
Soooo sad. I think that’s one of the reasons why I couldn’t do a real tree. Also the wrapping paper bin is a life saver!
HAHAHAHA!!! This is so great… yet, I feel your sadness coming through. Oh my friend, maybe I can find you a Christmas tree keychain to hold on to until next year.
Thanks! That was the intention. Just like when the Mickey Mouse Club was over until tomorrow! It was like forever…until tomorrow. 😀
Please do video it. PLEASE. What must we do to incentivize you?
My Christmas tree is still up….. but it’s at the boyfriend’s house so it doesn’t count.
His birthday decorations are still up in my kitchen though.
His birthday was in October.
I need a song too.
Haha! It’s totally already made…
You can keep your tree up until HE takes it down! Good plan.
Last year the trees didn’t come down til mid-February. Glorious.
Reminds me of that scene in Garden State where she’s like “Who’s Got Tha Tiiime?”
God, it’s been so long since I saw that movie! Video is uploading now. Because you asked so nicely.
Funny thing is I don’t mind the Hallmark boxes however getting all the boxes to fit back into their big storage box requires a degree in engineering
FYI the type next to the boxes under comment is so light hard to see 🙁
I always have to buy a new storage box. Every. Single. Year. This year it’s for the village. Which is still up. Whoops!
Crap! forgot to ask, what type? I don’t want things being hard to read!
My tree is still up. I decorate 5 rooms. They are all done,including my fabulous village.
I can’t bear to to take down the tree. I still light it every night. Ahhh…missing it already,and it’s still up!!
Mom, you crack me up. Apparently that’s where I learned it.
