Not much going on, which is good. Means I’m writing (and I am). However, I do have a funny story to share.
Last weekend hubby and I bought another large storage container (50 gal) for the new Christmas tree. We figured since the new tree is bigger, we’d need to store it in two containers instead of the one we had (for the old tree). And we were right. Sort of.
Last night he helped me dismantle the tree. Got the top and middle section in one box (with a little pushing), but then we put the bottom part in the second box. Or I should say we TRIED to put the bottom part in the second box. It’s too long. And not by a little, either. More like by 10”! Here’s a picture:
Talk about PPPP (Piss Poor Prior Planning). That’ll teach us to throw out the box the tree came in.
We searched the internet and couldn’t find any affordable containers that were long enough to hold the bottom part of the tree. Since only the rod is sticking out, I told hubby that maybe he should just cut a notch on the lid and it just sticks out (and then I would wrap it in a towel or bag or something to keep it clean/dust-free). He liked that idea.
So… Have you ever made a colossal goof like that? Really, I never even THOUGHT about measuring the bottom part of the tree before buying it. If I had known it wouldn’t fit in our box, I probably wouldn’t have bought it. Sheesh!
Have a great Friday! Hopefully the weekend doesn’t just fly by. J Oh, and Go Steelers!
