I've decided not to put up our Christmas Tree this year, 2010. There are actually a number of reasons why I am not going to put up our tree, aside from the obvious that I have waaaay to many things to do and I am just so beat up from my daily grind that I can't seem to find the time to put it up.
First of all, all our 5 shih tzu puppies are still with us. Putting up a tree when we only had 2 adult dogs was a mess - they always chewed on the decorations and jumped up the tree, so imagine the house with a total of 7 dogs - ugh.
Then, we're also planning on moving to the province towards the end of the school year, so digging up the tree from storage and then putting it back in its box when we move just doesn't seem right, so I might as well leave it as it is.
Third, I don't have a househelp anymore compared to last year who helped me put up the tree. I don't think I can do this all alone. :(
So there, I'm not being lazy, I just think it's unreasonable to put up the tree this year, although I know next year when we've already moved to a bigger house things will be a whole lot different.
