Winter is over, and eventually that will mean opening up the windows. I look forward to the warm weather, but it means that I will not be decorating my bedroom and office with balloons for the season.
The problem, for me, is oxidation. I tend to keep my balloons up for a long time, and I don't care at all for oxidized balloons. My wife doesn't much care for them either, because of the strong odor. So, in trade for the warm weather and the fresh air, the balloons have to come down.
I miss them during the spring and summer months, pretty much until November, actually. But it's something to look forward to.
And, taking them down is usually a lot of fun.
Meanwhile, I have my stories to keep me thinking about balloons while the sun shines.
