Attack of the killer tree

So I was doing the typical after Christmas thing you know, taking things down and cleaning up. I have finally moved on up to two boxes of Christmas stuff. Shocking I know. {Especially to those people out there who have 10+ boxes of Christmas stuff.} Anyway, like I said I was putting things away. I was taking the ribbon off and it was getting tangled at the bottom, so I was under the tree trying to get the ribbon off. Well when I was under the tree it fell over!!!! {don't laugh too hard} So there I am under the tree yelling for James to come and help me. I couldn't get out, so I needed James to lift the branches so I could shimmy out. I was so mad that I was attacked that I wanted to either burn it, but that wouldn't go over well seeing that the tree is plastic and metal. Or I wanted to throw it away, but how do I explain that to Steve that I threw away our fake tree... Well honey.... it's me or the tree.The tree doesn't look like it would eat you huh.... well don't let that fool you. And this thing just did not want to be put away. {I guess he didn't think he was done with Christmas} So I just had to put the tree, half, way in the box and put it to the side until I could find someone to help me take it apart all the way I couldn't remember if it came apart in three pieces or not. Obviously it's three pieces, I just couldn't get it apart. For two day that tree just stared at me every time I passed by.

Finally I got it put away in the box. It's a good thing because I didn't want to have Steve to have to choose. What am I saying.... Steve is a Scrooge anyway, he would have totally would have picked me.... I think.

Oh you make me laugh! I'm sorry you got attacked. Our very first Christmas married we had a real tree. On a Sunday morning I was under the tree watering it and it fell over on me too. The problem is that it was real and I had sap all over my hair and my dress! Not so happy with it. That was the last real tree we got!
