Yip, December 7th….not much action around here in the middle of nowhere since my last post. The house is kinda sorta decorated but not finished. Rumor has it that we will be venturing out, probably into Effortown or close to, in order to purchase a Christmas tree today. Now THAT, is going to feel strange.
For ever, ok for at least 20 years our family has ventured out in some form to cut down our tree. In rain, snow and at times balmy weather it has always been a holiday thing ya know? This year for the very first time, none of our kids will be with us. WEIRD. In order to stay married my husband and I have decided that we will purchase a precut tree. This way there will be no bickering about carrying the tree out of the field, chance of the top getting broken off (now that was a time lol!) or forgetting exactly where that perfect tree was located.
There is only one problem, we don’t have a clue where to purchase said precut tree. While supporting the local boy scout troop sounds good their trees are not quite tall enough for our space. Oh right, size of tree…no matter what we wont be getting out of that debate this year! Guess we will be checking the internet for local tree sales and crossing our fingers.
In 10 days the first round of kids, ok our adult children and their friends descend upon us. I feel excitement and a pinch of terror as I am no where near ready. Cross your fingers for me please my imaginary readers.
