Thanksgiving is over and it's on to Christmas. Not much time to get it all done. I sit and look around and can't seem to think what to do. There is no place for a tree. DR says it doesn't have to go in front of the window. I guess he's right. Then, there is the little bear tree. I know where I had it last year but the space has magically filled up with something else. We cleaned out the shed yesterday to find all the Christmas stuff. I've thought about just emptying the living room into the shed and starting over but there is too much in the living room. A good half of those bears living in our house. There was an ad in the paper yesterday. Someone else must have the same problem. It said they had 200 bears to sell. Part of a collection, never played with. DR wanted to know if I wanted to call about it. NO, NO, NO!!!! I can't even figure out what to do with the ones that I have and everytime I go to the thrift shop I buy another one. Don't get me wrong. I love bears and there is always one who really looks like it needs a home. There is always room for just one more, and one more and one more and one more and one more......Pretty soon we will have to move out to the shed.
I brought out the garland and lights for the front fence. I probably won't get it up today but soon. I guess I'm getting to be like DR. Wait for the coldest day of the year to work outside on a project. He has his own problem. He bought a Santa with sleigh and reindeer and doesn't know where to put it. The roof is out. No way to fasten it. That big mulberry tree hides the roof anyway. He says it's about 10 feet long. We also have a big star to put on the front of the big shed. Maybe it will stay in the big shed this year since we have a sleigh with Santa and reindeer. I have been gathering up all the Halloween and Thanksgiving and fall stuff today. I guess that is the first step anyway. I do have a place for it but the stuff seems to have multiplied so I hope it all fits.
I moved my CD player because there was no longer any place to plug it in where it was located. We have downsized many times in our 45 years and things just seem to grow like Topsy and fill in the empty spaces. I marveled at the large living room when we moved here. Little did I know. Should go to the post office and then decide what to do with the rest of the day. Work 6-9 tonight. Dooley

Oh my! I can't imagine what you would do with 200 extra bears either!! But that sure would be a nice addition to your other bears!

Dooley, you sound like me, no room for anything, even the path through my bedroom is starting to fill up. One day I will get a box of those big contractors bags and start filling them up and putting them out for garbage pickup. If we haven't worn it or used it in the last 3 years, we don't need it.

Don't worry, Glendann, your bear will fit and I love getting bears whether I buy them or someone gives them to me. Some have names and some don't have names because nothing came instantly to mind when I looked at it. We'll find a space for every thing. It will just take creative thinking. Maybe we could push the roof up a few inches. (HA) Dooley

Dooley it could be worse, it could have been a gnome obsession.

DR definately needs to build an extension I think for your bear collection Dooley. Just don't let those three gnomes start to take over as well!! LOL

Dooley we have a problem trying to find a place for everything too! I had to move the table that holds my printer and my storage trunk to the bedroom to make room for the tree, so the printer had to go way up on top of the desk almost to the ceiling!! I'll have to stand on a chair to use it!! I do hope you get it all figured out and find a place for everything!! We want pictures when you do!! Pleaseeeee!!
Wow 200 bears extra!! That's would have been alot!!lol!!
I agree watch out for those little gnomes!*wink*
