Sorry everyone...seems like I've posted alot....espesially on negative stuff ! I've been trying to get into the Christmas spirit...I LOVE Christmas (not because of the presents...just the family aspect and time of year ) . Here's my story ...We put the tree up on sunday , I put the first string of lights up (white) and went to go plug in the others to put on the tree . Seems the other 3 strands are MIA ...so I took the other string off and settled for the multi colored strands we had ( I HATE colored lights on a tree !!! ) . I finally got the lights done , all of the glass bulbs and decorations on , the tree was watered...and I was feeling pretty good . Not 2 minutes later, I hear a crash . You guessed it ...the tree fell down...and dh tells me..."that's weird , I've heard of them falling down , but it's never happened to me ." Sooo , I pick up all of the glass from the shattered bulbs , clean up a gallon of water off of the carpet I just shampooed , and had NO desire to redecorate the tree . Tonight my new puppy decided to slip away for a minute while I was cooking dinner , and proceed to chew off the plug on the string of lights attached to my tree . My fault . I can fix it.....but I guess I should have just listened to my gut when it said "Don't put up the tree yet ! " Maybe I'll just see if the white lights are on sale now and decorate it the way it should have been in the first place ! Thanks for listening !!!!
