what did i do? was it...
get a massage?
a nice lunch with an old friend?
no, i spent 4 hours taking the lights off of my prelit tree.
and before you say,
'ba-just buy a new freaking tree!', let me tell you the thrifty story of how i found this little baby!
5 years ago i was in a bad place and had group therapy every saturday morning.
well, therapy put me in a WORSE place for a few hours afterwards and i couldn't go home.
so i went shopping.
most of which i returned by wednesday of the following week. (chris REALLY appreciated that i returned it!) but not this 7 foot prelit tree.
this baby was 90% off!
so instead of $150.00 it cost $15!
even chris didn't want me to return it!
the lights on the tree cost at least that much.
well, this year there were a few strands that didn't work, and i was too lazy to take the broken ones off and replace them. (i really really wanted the tree up!)
so i spent monday ripping and cutting the broken strands off.
and the ones that weren't broken (yet).
my hands and nails are a mess.
so is the floor under the tree.
but now im ready for christmas (which is only 354 days away!)
