Putting up the Tree
Isn't putting up the Christmas tree one of the most irritating chores? No, no, no not the decorating. (Please don't send me e-mails addressed to the Grinch.) I mean just getting the tree in the stand.
In my house this task usually falls to my husband. This is in part because I have been pregnant or convalescing from childbirth during the last few Decembers, and partly because he's a control freak. He claims that it's really not too bad a job. Yet he complains bitterly that his hands get gooked up with sap and pricked by needles. After that he must endure my comments: "No, that's not quite straight." or "Maybe you should move it back the other way." or "I hope you're not getting dirt on my mother's Oriental rug."
That's when he starts cursing and I leave the room for another glass of Kahlua-spiked eggnog.
Can you relate? If so, check out our slide show review of Christmas tree stands that claim to make it all easier.
