Getting ready for the season


My friend Carol is stopping over after work today to put lights on my Christmas tree. How good of a friend is she??? I love decorating for Christmas, but I absolutely hate putting lights on a tree. That was the ex-husband's one and only job. I wandered to WalMart yesterday afternoon to pick up new lights...she's stringing the tree so that the lights can be left on forever. New lights, three green extension cords, and I'm all set. I'm glad I checked the cord color for the lights before we got to the cash register...they were white; I needed green. All is well.


I've pulled out my Rubbermaid totes of Christmas decor...Santas, snowmen, the works. Photos soon to follow!

Looking forward to it...that's what we're in the middle of here, too. You made me laugh with that "it was his one and only job" line. :D That's about how I feel about it, too.

I've decided to buy fake trees that are prestrung with lights. I hate dealing with lights too! Can't wait to see your tree!

Hey Teresa; Sounds like a fun filled weekend. How sweet of your friend to string you lights for you. Please share how you leave them on forever that sounds like a great idea. I do the stringing my self, I was thinking of getting a pre strung one but they never have enough lights on them, lol I have lots of lights on mine. I can't wait to see all your pretty decorations...

Have a great weekend.

Hugs;

Wow, that *is* a good friend. I absolutely hate that job, so a couple of years ago I bought my first artificial tree and it has permanent lights!
