Tis the season

... for me to feel like an ungrateful grinchy brat. *sigh*

A couple months ago, my dad helped me clean out a bunch of junk in my garage. He decided to haul away my very old Christmas tree. It was a total pain in the ass to put together. It usually took me well over a half hour cause I had to insert every single branch and it was huge. He told me he had a better tree that would be easier to put up. Well I hated the old tree so I said sure.

I put up the new tree today.

And I hate it.

It is so small and puny that it is ugly. There are only 3 pieces to it so it only took about 2 minutes to put together. But the branches are sparse and very short. I can see right through it. :(

Yes it was very cool to be able to put the tree up by myself and not end up with a huge backache. Sure it takes up a lot less room.

But I hate it. sniffle

If I tell my folks, they will get pissed. I'm not sure why they bought it in the first place. I think they had it up in their basement but I never paid attention to it.

I'm just so used to the huge tree that took up almost half of my living room. It totally blocked the windows on the back wall and you had to lean a little in the chair in order to watch tv. This one barely fills the corner of the room. I have no troubles getting to the window and I know the chair won't hit it when it gets reclined like the old one.

It just feels like a big part of what made up my Christmas is gone. And I can't afford to get a new tree and lord knows I don't want to hear my folks bitch about my being ungrateful.

Once you load it with decorations it'll look better. If not you can make sure it meets with an untimely accident and buy a tree after christmas for 50% off.
