Can’t see the forest for all the trees

I had an appointment with my sports therapist yesterday and I told him that I was still having pain in my arm at night and that in the last month there hasn’t been one night where the pain didn’t wake me up. So he asked me how I’ve been sitting when I work during the day and I had to admit that I’m still in the damn lazy boy, but it’s not my fault.

I may have already told you this but I can’t remember because due to my lack of sleep my brain is all jumbly, (not a word, huh?)  but I put up Christmas decorations over the weekend. I am sticking to 3 large and 2 small trees in Clearwater this year and I think we’ll go with only one in Nokomis.

I’ve seriously pared down my decorations. No, really, I have, I mean by comparison to my normal decorating habits anyway.

This is the tree on my front patio. It’s pink but it looks purple in the picture. It’s not, it has pink lights and pink decorations. MacGyver is just thrilled with it.

This is my lanai tree because everyone who lives across the pond needs to see that we decorate.

And the almost too tall tree.

The biggest problem that I have with my Christmas decorations is the dogs. Hank is very confused as to why he has to go outside to pee on trees when there are two perfectly good trees inside the house so that’s a struggle and Boomer is confused by the ornaments that look so lifelike. Seriously, how is a dog supposed to know which is the REAL candy cane.

Boomer’s handy work!

Apparently, you just have to try them all until you find the one that tastes good.

This year I decided to switch out my little white tree with a pencil tree due to the limited space and my general laziness when it comes to rearranging the furniture. Anywho, when I was searching for the perfect pencil tree I happened upon the latest craze in Christmas decorations, the Upside Down Christmas Tree, what?

No this is not a wordpress error, what you’re looking at is the latest decorating trend.

Y’all this shit is real. Real stupid. Just why? I mean, I don’t get it. So I googled it and I’m still confused. Apparently it dates back to the 12th Century when it represented Trinity but nowadays some people just consider it sacrilegious. After reading everything I could about it, I came to same conclusion, it’s just stupid. Don’t do it. Someone will laugh at you. Me. I will laugh at you.

Have you decorated yet?

Do you have pets and are they confused by the decorations or are my dogs not as smart as I thought they were?

  1. I visited my dad last weekend and he wanted me to go through the Xmas decorations. I sorta did that and just ended up decorating his house (we have tons of ornaments but just for one tree ha)

    I haven’t decorated my place yet. I’d planned on it. But I need to get my place set up. Hopefully once I’m back from Fort Lauderdale I’ll spend Sunday doing one or the other.

    No upside down tree for me! Dumb.
