January 8, 2010
I cook broccoli, contemplate putting on Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban as motivation to take down Christmas cards and tree; I already threw out the gingerbread and rice krispee houses, felt like a murderer. Door frames look so cheery now--angels and Santas bearing greetings and wishes from friends all over. How bare the place will look without them--new 2010 calendars just won't cut it. Sigh. But, leave decorations up too long, they look bedraggled, as uncared for as those poor children the Ghost of Christmas Present hid in the folds of his cloak. So--goodbye Christmas 2009, hello ordinary time.
