Childlike Christmas - unintentionally busy
This is the spot where the couch was. Now there is a Christmas tree. This happened this morning.
Our couch and chair were on loan from my mother-in-law. I wanted to get some new furniture, so we arranged to move her sofa and chair to storage. For some reason, that didn't actually happen until this morning.
The couch had accumulated a lot of junk beneath it and behind it. So as I was frantically trying to clean up this fantastic mess, the guy shows up at the door to fix the cracked tile in the bathroom. (We put in the work request about a week ago and I forgot all about it.)
So my hubby and my brother hauled the furniture out, I cleaned the living room with three enthusiastic munchkins underfoot, and the repair guy rushed in and out with various tools and minor demolition mess.
But as you can see, now it's all clean, and the Christmas tree actually touches the floor this year. The kids have been playing there nonstop.
I'm not sure how this relates to a Childlike Christmas. It was just our crazy morning today.
