I never did find the tree in the KingTutTombMinusAllTheGold basement this year. We all searched high and low..nowhere to be found although I'm sure there are caverns untouched in that junk receptacle down under.
But we got through the Christmas eve and Christmas day just fine with out all the regalia of broken ornaments and fake pine needles and dust...dust seems to accumulate faster in December when all the ornaments are on the tree and by December 26 I am usually really ready for Boxing Day...yeah, boxing up the faux branches and blown out light strands that KennyRogersLookAlikeBeforeThePlasticSurgeryWentWrong won't let me throw out because he just might work on them next year....we have piles of them from years gone by... don't have to worry about working on the half lit strands next Christmas..now do we?
We can look back and remember the tree last year~ and we can look forward and think about a much better New Year!

Trying to get into the mood for Christmas...but I can't find the Christmas Tree box in the King Tut's tomb of a basement. Here's a picture of what it looked like in the past....along with my favorite ornament of my Mother's..at least I know where that is. I know I saw the tree box in July..I know it's only December 5, but parties and gift exchanges start very soon and I'm not prepared...the more I try to straighten the house in anticipation of finally finding the little tree...hmmm maybe it is stuffed up the chimney for safe keeping? ...the house looks even messier. I think this year the family and friends should just go shopping together and decide that we will buy ourselves what we like and everyone will 'cheer' at our choices! That way every one gets what they want and we have had a great time together..then spend Christmas the way in the true spirit of how it should be spent...
