One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day. Don't clean it up too quickly."
~ Andy Rooney (1919-), American writer, producer, humorist
I am taking this seriously for the entire Christmas season. Jim got the Christmas stuff out of the rafters in the garage for me, and he set up our tree. I decorated the tree, but there is still a partial box of ornaments to consider. It's been sitting in the living room for two days, and it may be there a couple more.
My advice? Follow this all year round. A messy living room isn't the worst thing ever.
