I'm peeved that several of my lights on my prelit tree decided to go out. Supposedly the hype is that when a light goes out, the tree stays lit. What the manufacturer fails to tell you is that one light can take out a section. And then to try and find which light caused the problem is extremely annoying. The tree is only a couple of years old but I guess the temperature fluctuation all year while it's in storage has decreased the life expectancy of the bulbs.
Anyway, so I go to Walmart to get more lights and the price of a pack of 10 (for some reason they only sell them in packs of 10) has gone up .20 from last year. I will be sure to buy a bunch the day after Christmas when everything is half off.
I received 2 Christmas cards so far. I will send some out for sure but I need to force myself to sit down and write them. I think if I put in a Christmas music cd it will get me in the mood.
I haven't put my son's gift under the tree because he suspects what it is and if I put it under there now he will know for sure based on the shape and weight of it . I might do a switch and put my husband's name on it and put my son's name on my husbands and then when they go to open them tell them to swap!
