No Light Fight This Year
Even though my dear mother is probably turning over in her grave and my son away at war may never speak to me again, I have committed a mortal sin by purchasing an artificial Christmas tree. I just could not face another year of cussing at my Christmas tree and getting my panties all in a wad. All I can say is "what took me so long?" If arificial trees had always looked so real I might have done this a long time ago. This has been so easy and except for the lack of a Christmas tree smell, I can't tell it's not real.
Here is one of my newest ornaments this year and it's quickly becoming my favorite. It's from Hallmark and it is so real looking I could swear that was my green bean casserole dish on the bottom shelf.
Hopefully, Sprout and Mama will find it in their hearts to forgive me. I'm sending Mama's famous fudge to Iraq tomorrow to maybe ease the hurt. Sorry Sprout...but I had to do it.
