Re: Christmas lights go up TOMORROW!!

I started putting up my Christmas tree a week ago. It's an artificial tree that's 7 1/2 ft tall. It takes me forever to string the lights. I have no idea how many strings I put on there but it's a bunch. I'm guessing it's around 1600 but I don't really know. I string a little, then take a break... string a little more... take a break. I just knew I finally had enough strings of incandescent lights to do the whole tree and wouldn't you know it... it looks like I'm 2-3 strings short!! I ordered more from Amazon and they'll be here tomorrow. I should get it done by Monday. I have my daughter or son and son-in-law bring up my stuff from the basement cause I just can't handle the multiple trips down there while carrying boxes and big bulky Christmas tree bags. I have to allow about a week to get everything in order.
This is a week just to get my tree up, mind you. I'd LOVE to put garland and lights up outside, but I just don't have the energy or dexterity to get that done. I may see if I have enough gumption to decorate the fireplace mantle and living room though.
