Christmas Decorating Conundrum

I am conflicted. This year I totally decided that we wouldn't decorate as much as we usually do (so we are down to 5 trees...oh, yeah...)  But, I can't seem to wrap up decorating even what we decided to do!  Also, I have been struck with the worst case of Spring Cleaning/Organizing you can imagine.  Maybe it is the crazy, Spring-like weather we have been having, but just as we are supposed to be pulling out and placing all the traditional Christmas decorations around, I am fighting an urge to purge.  Trust me when I say that Christmas decorating and the deep desire to declutter do not make a happy mix!  Isn't this crazy???? 

Today as I was giving my bathroom a super deep clean I even had the wild thought that maybe I should have a yard sale and get rid of LOTS of things (like maybe the entire attic or storage building???)...and I never think having a yard sale is a good idea. I should mention I rarely think giving the bathroom a deep clean for fun is a good idea either, but that is just what I did!

Is this one of those female life changes no one bothered to tell me about? Is there a medication for it?  What's next..forbidding anyone to eat in my car?

This is funny. I am a bit of a perfectionist so I get into cleaning and purging at the weirdest times too. However, that being said, I do not want to purge my Christmas decorations!!!! I LOVE to decorate for Christmas. We just moved into this new home 2 months ago so don't have all the display space we had but I gave everything I couldn't use to our daughter and SIL. That way I still get to SEE it anyway:):) Relax and enjoy your holidays. XO, Pinky
