I know DJ will say that is it too early to put up the tree but I had set aside today to finish up MY part of the decorating. He is wearing a Holter monitor today---he feels fine but the cardiologist wanted a followup for comparison purposes along with an echocardiogram. I can drag the tree down to spare him a trip up and down the ladder as well as haul the decorations in. I've already drug in most of it already so what's a couple more?
There is a little method to my madness. By the time he gets in the mood to put the tree up (mid month) he has a hard time convincing me to actually decorate it as I am no longer "in the mood". I've done my part, now you do yours! So if the tree is up when I am ready to decorate, he might get some help. LOL
Normally Ms. Mousie and a stuffed bear (that has antlers, LOL) go UNDER the tree since there aren't presents under it. Of course, Skyler wasted no time in going after her! I had left this sitting by the fireplace. He drug it clear across the room by her braided tail. Since I have been writing this, he drug it back to the middle of the living room. The heck with puff balls and catnip mice! It will become a nightly thing to see where it will end up the next morning. Somehow I think Joy would get a kick out of that since she made it for me.
So looks like I have sit down work to get back to after the decorations are up.
