In my entire adult life I have never put up a Christmas tree. My reason initially was because I was never home for Christmas. No matter where I lived, I always went home and I didn’t really see the point. That’s not to say I wouldn’t decorate, I owned a wreath and got into the habit of buying a Poinsettia plant every year, I guess that was my tree LOL.
Well, this year, we’re not traveling for Christmas and I still won’t be home, we do Christmas at my Mom’s house, but I decided I wanted to get a tree. So last Sunday, I was doing some mad shopping, my 4 square almost combusted because I was all over the place, the Hubs birthday was the next day and I was trying to do some Christmas shopping too. Anyhoo, I decided to wander in the Christmas Tree shop to check out what they had and wouldn’t you know they had just the tree I was looking for, or so I thought.
I figured I could just work with what I had right, so I started putting it up. Well, boy was I wrong, take a look…….
