Well..I put my Christmas tree up yesterday. I got a 7 1/2 foot tree on sale from Sears......the tree actually looks more like a 9 FOOT tree out of the box. SO big and beautiful!! So full too. It took me like 2 hours to just FLUFF all the branches out! WHEW what a back breaker. Then another 3 hours to put on all the lights. I could not reach the top without a ladder..so will tackle that today. Then I can decorate it. Today my back feels like it is broken!! hahaha. SO I may have to recover a bit before doing all that. Then there will be the rest of the house to decorate.....and then cleaning my mess up! Then a bit of a breather before starting on my candies and cookies!! Kind of overwhelming if you let it be! I will take pictures and put on line once everything is all finished. Well..I need to get back to work for a bit.

OKAY...so this seems to work really well so far. I am sitting in the dark as everyone else is still sleeping....working here at my computer. I came across this website by chance and it all seemed so interesting...I decided to start my own BLOG!! So....instead of actually working for the moment I am instead typing here....hahah. Anyway....my day started around 1:15 a.m. Yesterday was rather exciting. I decided to get my Christmas tree set up. Was putting in a new plug in the wall and shorted something out. Sparks went flying and I blew the breaker! WOW...reminded me of a scene right out of A Christmas Story when the father plugs in all their Christmas lights into the socket in the wall and sparks fly out and he blows a fuse. Was scary but funny at the same time. Not sure what I did as everything is fine now and working well..but I will replace the outlet regardless.
