The Gremlins are at it again! In my attempt to take the Christmas decorations down and pack them away in their appointed totes and boxes, I am faced with the challenge that nothing is fitting into the totes/boxes that it came out of. How can that be? Yes, I purchased a few new things over the course of the holidays, but that in no way could account for the overflowing totes. I've spoken to several other people who are experiencing the same peril! I do believe it is a conspiracy by the retail industry! They want us to have to rush out and buy more totes! Have you noticed that one of the first things put on sale AFTER the holidays is a complete line of storage bins? That has to be it! The retailers have unleashed a colony of Gremlins to invade our homes! The little critters have been fed and bathed and are happily awaiting the chance to drive an otherwise relatively calm, cool and collected person to the point of throwing up their hands in utter frustration as they head to the store to purchase some more storage totes!

Yes that stuff just multiplies or maybe it gains weight over the HoLiDaZe like we do!!!
It shure feels great to have it almost packed away and everything fluffed up for a New Year!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Hi there,

Came over from Brandy's blog. Funny, I had the same problem, and had to get more storage totes as well. I enjoyed reading your blog.

On your move to Kentucky, it reminds me of myself. I left the city and moved to the Ozarks hills over twenty years ago, and it has been wonderful, living here, with nature and animals, and nice country folk.

Best regards,
