Our Christmas tree is now up, decorated, and looking like a project from a drug & alcohol rehab's occupational therapy class. A lot of ornaments from about 3 1/2 feet down and a pretty barren top. Some re-decorating is called for after everyone is in bed.
If you're ever in the mood to test the limits of your mental stability , try decorating a Christmas tree with the help of children ages six, three, and two. As Hunter S. Thompson once said, "I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to
anyone," and I'm likewise loathe to recommend repeating my experience, at least not without employing at least two of Dr. Thompson's remedies.
