We succeeded in sorting the Christmas boxes tonight.
We had three boxes of Christmas stuff. Small boxes – each about the size of a banker’s box – but still, three. Included in those three boxes were three Christmas trees. And I’m not even that into Christmas.
My girlfriend had a series of ornaments from her childhood (some of which never made it out of her ex’s place, apparently) and I had my collection of angel figures. We both ended up letting go of some ornaments.
We also seem to have acquired a collection of wrapping paper and ribbon. All of that went.
And I got rid of all three trees. Portland has lots of trees. I don’t need to move mine.
