Well,I do have a 6 foot beautiful artificial tree that I usually put up,but didn't this year.It scratches me to pieces trying to get it put together and I can't keep the limbs on it.They are supposed to stay on with little pin things,but half of them are gone and it's a pain in the butt to try to get the limbs to stay on.I am just not really in a Christmas mood this year,I just want it to be over with.
So I went to the dollar store and bought a little 4 ft tree and put 2 strands of blue lights on it and plan on putting on a few ornaments.It looks pretty ugly and sickly compared to the one I usually put up.I wouldn't have even fooled with one if I didn't have a 3 year old.
My cats are just loving it.They jump up onto the table I have it sitting on and chew on the branches.
My oldest kitty has always loved to chew on the light bulbs(not wires)
I don't know why he does this,but I always make sure to keep the tree unplugged when I go to bed or leave.
Believe it or not though when I did put up my big tree the cats never tore it down(which I have a couple of VERY nosy kittens this year.LOL.).They did knock off a few ornaments and probably will again when I put them on.
Oh well,I may have an ugly tree,but at least I didn't get so stressed this year putting it up that I wanted to hurl it out the window.LOL.
