The tree's been in the garage since Tuesday night and I just have this block -- both mental and physical -- about trying to find the lights. And the stand. I did walk about the basement for a few minutes last night, looking for the stand, but came up empty. I borrowed it from Mom last year and I wonder if I returned it; she does not recall.
Do you think I could just lean the tree up in a corner of the living room and have the kids put their ornaments on it? I could tilt a lampshade in that direction. I mentioned it to Gretchen in reply to a comment yesterday and she suggested that I could go all out and even use a colored bulb.
It's snowing. The weekend is upon us and there's going to be more snow! It looks like I won't be venturing far from home, so I guess I'll practically be forced to face it. *sigh* It'll come together.
