Well, it's Sunday, which means school tomorrow. UGH! Gabriel makes straight A's so far so I am blessed. It's just the way they change terminology and other things. (Apparently Texas isn't happy unless it's confusing) O well this is for another day.
How is your weekend going so far? I'm hoping to go out this afternoon so I don't have so many stops to make tomorrow. I can only climb into my vehicle so many times a day or I can't walk the next day. lol
OK, so this is about my tree. Hubby got the stuff down from the attic on the first. (last Monday) On Tuesday , he brought the totes in with the wall décor in it. (I did not touch it) I did, however, put out the things I keep in my closet in the house.
So we are at Wednesday. Hubby brought the tree in and assembled it. (it's prelit) We bought this one 8 - 10 years ago after I complained for the umpteenth time about the HUGE tree we used for over 20 years. It just beat me up decorating it every year. It was so big and so heavy I was all scratched up when I finished. (it was so well made it still looked like new) honest!
So I bought a prelit one. It always took at least 2 days to do the lights, doing and redoing them to get them even and just right. We just had to find the perfect one.
Well, this year, try as he might, he couldn't get all the lights to come on. So we went in search of a new one. Such fun! There are 8 places around here that sell trees. We had to go to all of them. We ended up back at Sears. There was a beautiful tree that we both loved.
Learned something new, DO NOT go to Sears unless absolutely necessary. One person in the whole tool/décor section. He couldn't call the "warehouse" area to check on availability, he had to go check himself.
There was still availability tags on the tree but he had to check. (evidently the tags mean nothing) We waited an hour to find out there wasn't any. So we leave, very unhappy.
On the way home I thought of Big Lots. Can you believe it - we found our tree - at Big Lots of all places!
So we came home, put it up, and Gabe helped decorate after school. So on the 3rd we finally got it up!
Sorry for the long post. Take a look:
Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
