Decorating the Christmas tree should be considered a time for family memory building.
I have a confession to make. I have strict self-made rules for my own home. My rule is I must have my home spotless before I can put up the Christmas tree.
This cleaning usually happens during my time at home for Thanksgiving. Well this year I have found myself in quite a conundrum. My living room has been a complete disaster area for a while as I am beginning some changes to my living room. This has delayed my cleaning and putting up the tree. Not to mention that my tree was damaged by my teenagers last year.
I have procrastinated buying a new tree this year. My thinking is that I can probably catch a deal on a tree after Christmas. However, this has left me with few options for a tree this year. My choices are try to repair the tree I currently have to make it last one more year. Use a sparse small white tree that I usually use as snowman tree as my main tree. Or I could try to create an alternative to my main tree.
As we are approaching the Thanksgiving holiday I probably should be working on a menu for the special day. But I must admit, I am not a big fan of cooking. Good thing my husband is as he has been a restaurant manager for many years. I don’t hate to admit that I love that he does most of our cooking. It’s not that I can’t cook. I mean I can read so I can cook, right? As I continue to procrastinate the upcoming menu I have been instead looking over Christmas tree ideas. See I would much rather look at decorating ideas than cook books.
