What's Wrong With This Picture? A Christmas Story...

Normally, I would probably lose my temper patience over this, but it's really so funny that I keep breaking into unbridled laughter every time I pass by the living room and see the tree. I just have to crack up.


This was is our Christmas Tree before Mr. Snooty had to take it down last year.







This is our Christmas Tree after Mr. Snooty got into the holiday spirit this year. Bless his heart, he just gets so excited over Christmas!



I don't want to go into the whole faded middle-of-the-tree thing. For now.





He even commented on how great the tree looked when I was done decorating it. Yes, I must admit this is really one of my best trees ever. Hellooooooo. Maybe it's just me. But, sometimes I really do feel like Ralphie's Mom.







This is what our Christmas Tree looked like for three years before Mr. Snooty (The *Handyman*) decided to manhandle take control of the tree situation, getting it out of the house, as I requested. I guess I should have requested Alive... not Dead.




This is how the Christmas Tree looks after Mr. Snooty (The *Handyman*) left the scene of the crime. Whew! I think we were lucky that the carnage wasn't worse. Our old tree was truly pathetic after years of *ahem* tender loving rip-it-through-the-door-at-all-costs-devil-may-care kind of TLC. We have a method to taking care of our things, but I won't delve into that now.

Geeze Loueeze! Do I see a couple of rows of lights out? Hmmmm...




Tonight when he came home he said "You be sure and let me know if I can help with the outside decorations". Sure thing, Dear. I can hardly wait to see what innovative ideas you have for the outside this year.... Oh, the possibilities are simply mind boggling.

But, in all fairness... he might just need to get his glasses tweaked.

This is the same man who once demanded that I install a clothes hook by his side of the bed so he could hang his robe there and wouldn't have to walk all the way over to the closet. I rest my case. Lucky for him that he sleeps in my great-grandmother's four poster bed. You know. So that he can just hang his clothes on the posters. Oh. Yeah. Baby. He's a keeper all right.

I'm way behind on my reading. I see I have lots to look forward to here. Can't wait to catch up! Hopefully this weekend. Your Xmas tree foibles had me laughing out loud and it isn't even 6 a.m. yet!

I think the tree is curved like that because it's laughing. I seem to curve when I'm laughing too, well, curve against my curves, if you know what I mean.

Last weekend, The Old Goat just had to hang more lights on the outside of the house. He went out and bought more and they're sitting on the kitchen counter next to the dog biscuits. Men.

I'm sure he and Mr. Snooty could compare notes on Christmas tree installation and outdoor illumination!

Your tree turned out beautiful.

Snooty! The effort is well worth it. Beautiful.

Can't stop laughing...you make my day!

It's a happy tree, what's your point?
And I personally think it's a fine idea to install a coat hook by the bed, and you could even put a special table there to hold a bedpan too-- that way, he wouldn't even NEED to get up to get the robe off the hook.

Sheesh, a no-brainer Snooty. (I typo'd and called you snotty-- cracked myself up)

Mariah said...

Did someone just call you snotty?? Your tree is beautiful, I think I will need to invest in an artificial tree, so tired of forking out $ every year for a tree that is going to be thrown out, seems wrong. Now...I must go catch up

Luckily I'm married to a Jew. He follows my exact instructions since he doesn't know exactly what to do. LOL!

Snooty Primadona said...

I think some of you were looking at last year's tree, lol. There is a definite distinction.

And, I have been rather full of snot lately.

;-)

No matter what it looks like to you, Ms. Snooty, it looks beautiful to me...I'm being the Grinch this Christmas and not putting my tree up...not even the tiny one I had in my classroom for years. I just couldn't get enthused and I didn't have any helpers around to lug the boxes out of the attic. Lug is the operative word...I couldn't do it myself, having been banned from atticville years ago, but that is another story. I am enjoying everyone else's trees this time. Next year I'll corral one of my boys to help me...
