I've been so busy that I haven't been able to put my tree up until today. I finished Christmas shopping this morning and this afternoon I put the tree up. It's such a job because I have to move the furniture to make room for it. Then I had to dig out all the Christmas stuff. Hubby is no help at all, he can't do it and just gets in the way. I think part of it is he doesn't want to do anything, not only Christmas related but anything at all. The less he does, the less he is physically able to do. I noticed he is ok with anything, nothing bothers him but it bothers me so that if I want something done I must do it myself. In one way this is good, it's made me stronger. After I decorated the tree, had it all set up, plugging it in was going to be a big problem. If I wanted the lights to shine, I had to crawl under an end table that I couldn't move to reach the plug.
I've had two back operations and getting on the floor is a big problem or rather getting up off the floor! Crawling is another matter! But I really wanted them to light so crawl I did and get up I did too. I am stronger than I think!
So now the presents are wrapped and under the tree ( no kids here). My lights are on a timer and I'm enjoying the beauty of my Charlie Brown tree. My next endeavor is digging out my manger and figurines from the attic. I don't usually climb ladders but it's another case of wanting it bad enough to do it! If you hear someone yelling from falling thru the ceiling, I sure hope it's not me, lol!
