If I went with my impulse, Halloween decorations would only be taken down to make room for Christmas, Christmas would only depart for Valentine's Day, and so forth.
The engineer's instincts are a bit more punctual. So, in honor of marriage and compromise and learning to live together, I attempt (the key word is attempt) to go against my natural decoration take-down lazy instinct.
Yesterday, I packed away our Halloween decor. Now the house feels kind of empty. How soon until Christmas decorations become socially acceptable?
