Via Facebook I've found out that some people are just now taking down their Christmas trees, which I think is fine. Leaving them up until the spring seems a bit excessive, but why do you have to take them down by NYE? That seems to be the conventional wisdom. Bunk I say!
So has everyone put their Christmas gifts to good use? Have you put them away? Worn them? Washed and ruined them? This year is particular bad for me as I have yet to do anything with about half of my gifts!! I like them all, but I just haven't either put them away or worn them. So I don't internalize my angst, I blame my shoulder surgery. Clearly that's not true, but I'm not sure of the real reason. I guess if I'm not using it everyday, it's just not a priority right now. Though some of them I COULD be using if I just unpacked them. Well, maybe tomorrow.
Also, I found out today that at least 91% of your American Red Cross donations for Haiti will actually make it's way to Haiti. That's a pretty good number.
