at which point we finally decided to just get the tape.

can the christmas light people really think of 
no better way than this?
i mean, i know you can just buy a prelit tree and all.
and make no mistake, i was cursing myself and our real christmas tree
the entire time i was taking down these lights.
especially b/c i know we have a perfectly beautiful prelit tree in the basement
that i could have put up
and avoided all of this with.
and why i earth could i not have put the twisty ties in an easier place to find?
or did i throw them away?
could sean please look in the garage one more time?
or maybe it was in the basement
in the things
by the things?
god bless sean for his patient heart:)
and god bless the smile of mine that gets him to look in the basement one more time.
at which point i then had to go look in the basement
and the garage
and the basement again
before we finally decided to just get the tape.
and then vowed to be more organized about all of it next year.
kind of like we did last year.
and maybe couldn't we get those garage shelves to keep everything in once place?
adios muchacho.

Ah, lights. I seriously hate those things. I did find a good way to store them, though. As I unwound them from the tree, I wrapped them around a piece of cardboard. I did that last year and it made unravelling them this year so easy!
