This is the first Christmas since mom died that I've felt "Christmasy," and with the move, there isn't alot I can do about it until I get some things put away. We've downsized significantly, so that is taking some thought and time.
The cats love the new place, and clearly are enjoying the boxes!
Downsizing is so freeing. Stuff is a weight around ones shoulders, for sure. And the smaller, stairless house is just what my fibromyalgic body needs. I am so grateful for the provision of this home.
