as usual. We always put it up the day after Thanksgiving or soon thereafter if we are traveling. I'm not even sure why, but my mom always did, so now I do.
But it was delayed because after getting the durn thing put together and fluffing all the fake branches, I found out several strands of lights were out. BN was able to get them to come on but was worried about the wiring maybe being loose and causing a fire, so down it came and off to BJs we went.
Now it's up and decorated but the rest of my house is a disaster area. I had planned to do the trimming and get the house clean... oh well, it's only Friday... got plenty of time.
I thought about going out in the madness that is Black Friday, not because I need to buy any special deals but because I like being out in that mess. Call me crazy, but I like it. Although sitting here now, feeling tired from what little I did do today, I'm really glad I no longer BF.
