The Christmas Chronicles...Day 19

Our Christmas tree has taken a turn for the worse...

Twinkle lights out, needles falling everywhere, tree stand as dry as the Sahara, and it's lost its "pine forest scent"...and then there is the leaning...lots of leaning.

In fact it's leaning so much, you have to lay on the couch with your head turned slightly to the right, and then lowered, with two small pillows (one large pillow is too much) underneath your right hip, so you are angled "just so"...then the if you squint your right eye tightly...the tree looks almost straight.

As I looked at the tree tonight, I also noticed alot of the ornaments aren't on it this year. Which is kinda strange because I was in the room when the kids decorated it so I thought I saw them put everything on it...but they apparently only put on about 1/3 of what we usually...

I guess they got tired of hearing me say, "no, don't put it there...put it here...no, don't put Rudolph next to the Grinch, they don't belong together...no, don't put Grandma's star next to Aunt Val's snowman, they don't get along..." (Grandma and Aunt Val...not the ornaments)

So our Christmas tree is looking a little rough right now but there's still time to regroup and make some alterations...speaking of alterations...

our tree skirt needs to be let out...those Thanksgiving pies do it every year.

I think you're curing me of my desire to ever have a real tree! Just read your adventure on the escalator...too funny! So thankful for the smiles you give us on here.
