Next November, would someone PLEASE remind me not to make a giant build up for Family Christmas Tree Decorating Night, until after I've gotten the trees out of storage?
A whole week's worth of shameless plugging, bribing, and reminding - - completely wasted last night, when we brought out the
(Ahhhhhh... [that's the choir singing]...hhhhhhhh)
only to plug them in and find that YET AGAIN half of the lights aren't working. And since I am the only person at my house who thinks it's important for all the lights to be actually working, you know, before you put the decorations on there... (can't we just do that part later, mom?) Well let's just say it slowed down the decorating party. By about 3 hours.
It's only happened to me for the last 24 years in a row, but let's not call me a slow learner, ok? I prefer the term "stubbornly optimistic".
The Family Decorating Party will be continued with everyone who doesn't have work or singles ward fhe or swim practice tonight.
I'm pretty sure that means I'm doing it by myself.
