Bahumbug!!! I tried putting my tree up, but with no success. Right now I'm so frustrated. The tree stand is not working . I tried several times but the stupid tree kept falling down. So now I give up. I'm going to have to get a man to come over to help me. I don't have tools to make it work. I feel stupid that I can't get it to work. Perhaps dad or son inlaw can help. What a downer. I really was in the mood to decorate. I guess It can wait til tomorrow night. Til then ho ho ho.. I'm going to see if I can find a christmas movie on the tube.
