|Don't Forget The Saw|
How many people put up your Christmas tree this past weekend? By the number of pictures on facebook, I would say a lot. We usually put ours up the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but Thanksgiving was early this year. It was practically in October! Well, at least it seemed that the Halloween decorations were barely put away before Thanksgiving was here. Time is going way too fast.
We have had a fake tree for forever. And, depending on our mood, we would either put it up or get a real one. Or do both. The real one upstairs and the fake one downstairs. I love real ones. I love the smell. I love fake ones - - they do not shed needles. But we finally had to throw our fake one away after last year - - it was really kind of ugly. I don't know if it was always that way, or if it just "turned" ugly the last couple of years. So, we decided we'd go "fake tree" shopping on Saturday. We went to WalMart - - it was later in the afternoon so all the crazy people had already left. We found a really pretty tree, 7.5 feet tall, lightly flocked, and with lights. For only $40. Seriously. That's what the sign hanging on the tree said. We were about ready to put the tree in our cart and I felt I needed to look a little closer at the sign. Long story short - - the tag was on the wrong tree. It should have been hanging on a fairly hideous short white tree. Ah, disappointment.
We will go to our local Christmas tree farm this weekend (they have real reindeer - - honest). Maybe we'll fake tree shop at the end of the year.
Yup, we're gonna go burn some dust and eat my rubber. Whatever, Russ. Whatever.
