Our house had been ransacked by the soot event and the cleaning up process. It was invasive and intrusive and turned the house upside down. So we finally got something that looked like order, or an approximation there of, when we started rearrangin for Christmas and brinign up boxes and boxes of decorations. My husband looked out over this newest mess and said in despair, "Where did our clean house go?" My daughter said, "It is lost under the joy of Christmas!"
