I came home Friday night with the intention of dressing up the tree and making it all nice and purty by the time Lunchtruck returned on Sunday.
But then I realized that the string of lights I had simply wasn't long enough... and that I hated the cold blue cast they gave to the tree. So I tried dressing the tree with everything else we owned, and came to the conclusion that we were too diligent in getting rid of the things we didn't love, because now, now there's not enough to dress a 4.5 ft tall tree.
Who the heck doesn't own enough ornaments for a 4.5 ft tree?
Sigh. I took everything off the tree and made a list:
- Fairy lights (paperwork for tree recommends a string of 300)
- Tree skirt
- actual frickin' ornaments.
- Tinsel? Garland? The silver ribbon we have is NOT working.
