My xmas tree has been down for a couple weeks now. I couldn't make myself take down the xmas cards. It was so nice to see them hanging all over my cupboards. It made me smile every time I saw them. Plus, my cupboards are white so it would look really bare when they came down. I tried to stop her. I told her I would take them down when I was ready. Apparently, she thought I should be ready now. So, since she took them down, she also got to remove the tape so I can save them.
