This is the first year that I've absolutely been so far behind the ball that I actually didn't get things done on time. I always complain that I'm behind, but I've always found a way to make it all work. This year, frankly I just gave up. Between my new copy girl job and going to Crew practice everyday from 4-6pm, I just couldn't get it all done and I'm finally okay with it.
We did get the tree decorated, although it spent it's first week naked with only lights on it. And actually I sorta liked it that way. I think everyone has been so freaking worn out, Brenna with finals and school, Zack with school and winter conditioning, me with work, winter conditioning, and house stuff and John with work - that none of us could summon the energy to get anything done. We ended up doing a family vote - #1 - leave the tree naked with lights. #2 - naked with lights and add the beads, #3 - each pick out a few of our favorite ornaments and do minimal decorating. #3 won and the tree looks just great.
