The Lights are On (Mostly)



In my last post I told you my favorite part of decorating for Christmas is finding the perfect tree. My least favorite part? Putting on the lights, no doubt about it. Now my husband has pointed out (ad nauseum, I might add) that if we had a pre-lit artificial tree I would have gotten to the actual decorating part of the tree hours ago. Of course, I dismiss the very thought of it, remind him of the Meenachan family tradition of big, beautiful real trees and get back to the task at hand.

Fifteen sets of lights, two hours and three extension cords later I still have bare spots on the tree and I'm starting to get a little frustrated. (Don't you dare tell my husband!!) We can send a man to the moon but we can't invent Christmas lights that stay on!!!!???? Who can I call about this, there's gotta be someone in charge......

I better go find a couple of more strands to add to the tree. Grrr.....

I believe I would have hung myself w/ one of those cords by now. (just kidding) Last year, we bought a tree that you can actually step on the switch, and it turns on/off - you leave it plugged in, so it's awesome. Now if they could just make an artificial one w/ the real scent, we'd be good. You are a BETTER person than I am if you're on strand 15, and have to add more.

That is a beautiful tree! Now if you can just get done with decorating it...LOL! I am sure it will be all worth it after it's done, Gail. Thanks for that nice comment you left about my home in Laurie's blog. You can move in with me anytime!...Christine
