KEVIN IS GOING TO KILL ME!!!
I went shopping for my Christmas Tree this afternoon. I went to this garden center on the other side of town that has great trees at good prices. I am a stickler about my tree. It must be a real tree and it has to be as tall as I can fit in my home. So much about Christmas has changed since I was a kid, I really miss those days. The one thing I can and do hold onto from my childhood is my tree.
My tree is full of a hodge podge of ornaments that I have collected over many years. There is no theme other than sentimentality.
Anyway, I usually buy a 9' tree and I always buy it the weekend right after Thanksgiving, but this year was different. The garden center had no 9' trees left, the only ones they had were 7'-8' or 10'-11' and above. I refuse to go down in size especially since I have vaulted ceilings, soooooo, I went up.
These two pics are of the tree in the back of the truck in the garage. It looks big even in the back of my rather large truck.
I just found out that Kevin signed up to work tomorrow even though he knew my office party was at the same time. He thought he would get day shift, well no, he is on afternoon shift, so I guess I get to go stag. I am not happy, but at least when he bitches about my tree, I can just say "shut it."
