Happy New Year, 2010!

The Time of New Beginnings has arrived at The Parson's House!

Out with the Old, In with the New!

And my, my.  It takes a lot of Flinging and Flailing, Shining and Shaping, Cleaning and Clanging for New Beginnings to happen properly.  It's not enough to just put away the Christmas Decorations.  Oh no.  Here at The Parson's House, we always make it a practice of taking things just One Step Further.

Therefore, in the best interest of going Above and Beyond, we are not just putting away the red and green and bringing back the drab.  Absolutely not.  We aren't just vacuuming the glitter and sweeping up the berries.  We aren't just rolling up the Twinkly Lights and packing away the Plastic Mistletoe.  No indeed.

We are DISMANTLING the Parson's Son's bedroom and MOVING it across the hall after we have DRAGGED the tons of JUNK from the empty bedroom across the HALL and dispersed it to various and sundry Points of Charity and at the same time we are PULLING mountains of materialism from under FURNITURE and WASHING off dirt from said FURNITURE and THROWING AWAY piles of petrified toys, books, clothes, and unidentifiable objects which APPEAR in every imaginable CROOK and CORNER and PAINFULLY HAULING all of the MASSIVE AMOUNTS of STUFF from one point in this house that has suddenly grown quite large to another.

Whatsoever thy hand finds to do, do with all thy might.  Even if it kills you.
