Do you see it? In the pic? No, not the starfish and not the cross above the door. Do you see what I am referring to? Yup, the mistletoe. I packed away all of the Christmas decor almost 2 weeks ago. I went total Feng Shue and ergonomic with the packing of the items. Each box contains a perfectly organized universe of wrapped ornaments, stockings, breakable elves and nativities---A place for everything and everything in it's place. Even the Container Store would have had Packing Envy. I was so relieved to be done. My husband carried all the boxes into the attic where they will hibernate until next year.....and today, I see this---The Mistletoe which has been hanging by the front door without our even realizing it. Of course, it was a novelty when I first hung it at the start of the Christmas season. But now, it has blended into the decor of the rest of our house and remained unnoticed over our heads as we came and left on a daily basis. When I saw it today, I was annoyed and thought, "Arggg! It never fails! I always forget something every *#*$@# year. Ugh! Double Ugh!" However, after a brief conversation via Facebook about this and considering the fact that it is mistletoe----Mistletoe!!!!-----maybe, this is a good thing! If people decorate with potpourri in bowls, then why not mistletoe? Hmmm, I am thinking it might be a better idea (and serve a more productive purpose) if I move it from the front door and hang it in my bedroom instead....right next to the dance pole we had installed. Okay, okay, I am just kidding about the dance pole. I'm NOT that kind of girl. Although, I like the idea of being the kind of gal who has mistletoe hanging in her room all year. I'm sure at first my husband will think this is a weird new decorating style of mine...... and then he will see the beauty in it.
