O Christmas Tree?

Maybe you’ve said this too…it seemed like a good idea at the time…yeah…

You know what it feels like to go to one of those places where you can cut down your own Christmas Tree…and like the Griswalds you forgot the saw…

Well..tried to avoid that type of incident this year…but really wanted to get a real tree.  But with 3 little kids didn’t think I could get it on the car in the house on my own.

So, did what any self respecting minivan driving suburban mother would do…ordered it online…having it delivered.

Seemed like a good idea at the time.

It’s still not here.  Every day…they ask…is today the day we get our tree?  The ornaments are waiting…the lights are wadded up in tangled mess…just waiting…

I need like a GPS tracker for this tree…like that NORAD app that tracks Santa on his sleigh on Christmas Eve…

Maybe you have had the pleasure of teaching a 5 and 3 year old patience…they look at you like…you’re speaking like the teacher in the Charlie Brown Christmas special…whah whah whah whah

It's very hard to teach patience! Is the tree being delivered by UPS or FED EX? You could use the tracking number to see where it's at, and when it's expected. Show them on the computer what day it says it should be there. Hope it comes soon!

It is hard with patience at any age. I hope you tree comes soon so you and your children can enjoy it. I have a fake tree and I tried to put it together and I found out a piece of the base was bent. Frown we have had that tree since 1997. I think that we got out money out of our fake tree. I am going fake tree shopping this afternoon. Have a blessed day.

I'm with you, how dare someone deny your sweet children and you the pleasure of decorating your tree. There should be a tracker on the shipment, I pray.  Nora Frown
