Something rarely seen in our house. but today was the day after Thanksgiving and the Christmas tree day. Jim scared us when he said he wasn't going into work, but in the end he went in at 8:30 and said he would be gone for a couple of hours. a couple of hours???? how were we supposed to get the house decorated in that time?????? I hopped in the shower when he left. mean while the kids rearranged the furniture to make room for the tree and cleaned off the surface for decorations --AND IT WAS A SHORT SHOWER! :D
Meagan and I carried the tree upstairs and the 3 kids put it together the tree and i tested the lights! and then the decorated the rest of the house. The only snag came when it was time to clean up. the vacuum wouldn't suck up the little tree residue.
the belt was busted. so have you ever tried vacuuming the living room floor carpet with the mini vac. VERY TIME CONSUMING! but we did it. its up still need ornaments but up.
