My tree (artificial, pre-lit) is standing, half up in the living room since last Sunday. Yes, only half, because as we started to put it together, DH plugged in the lights, to realize that a row of branches, right in the middle were not lighting. I then plugged in the top, without attaching it, and found that half of that wasn't lighting, either. So much for pre-lit. This week, while at Target, I picked up a couple boxes of lights and will wind them in, right over the existing lights, and finally put it all together. Hopefully, we'll get the ornaments down and decorate today or tomorrow. If not, it will be next weekend for that.
To think: once upon a time, I used to put the tree up, branch by branch, wind strings and strings of lights, branch by branch, and decorate, all in one day.
