We took down our Christmas tree today. I find it refreshing to put the house back in order, since Christmas decor disrupts the normal flow of things for a few weeks. Our tree this year made a huge mess that took many devices to clean up, and we ended up with more needles on the floor than on the tree limbs by the time the tree was finally out of the house.
Mr. Morgan was dismayed and disappointed that none of our three vacuums could adequately pick up the debris. He begrudgingly resorted to manual cleaning with a broom and dustpan to remove the bulk of the needles. We did finally get everything cleaned up, and I'm happy to have my house back to normal.
