Thread: What Not to say while trimming the tree

  1. #21
    last year my partner spent hours decorating the tree, it wasn't exactly wise of me once it was all finished to say "Shall I have try". Only just back on speaking terms...
    Merry Christmas!

    One that He better never say is " It's OK" or "I really like the way my mom does hers"

    :santa: trimming tree

    i spent 2hours trying to trim the trunk of my tree to fit the stand.
    sawing through wet pine is no easy task. the frustration and anger were short lived when i saw the tree in all its sparkling glory. probably one of my favourite days of the year.

    I've had to do that before but never had a saw. Had to use one of my kitchen knifes. Now I have a saw and we put up artificial trees.

    Donna, thank you for making me laugh. You are not alone; I had to use a kitchen knife, too, at least a few years when we used to get real trees.

    I'm trying not to laugh too loud... my husband is sleeping. But I can't help myself..I am definately in the right place. One tree goes up (prelit), the ornaments go on. The ornaments come off, and on go more lights. Ornaments go back on and then get rearranged. After another few days of this, the tree looks great

    and then...

    Is that topper leaning alittle to the left? That means breaking out the ladder again...

    Is that a hole in the tree? Need to rearrange that spot... and finally,

    What happened to the lights on the right???

    Then, ditto for the next two trees. No wonder I have to start in October.
