I've been a little slow to decorate this year.
It's been a tough year, and I think I'm feeling a little down.
I miss my mom and stepfather who have moved away.
I miss my dad, who has also moved away.
But, this weekend, we pulled out the lights for our fences
and the wreath for the front door.
And then, last but not least,
we pulled out the box with our fake tree.
We kept this big box in the storage room off our back porch.
We've kept it there the last two years and never had a problem.
Well, this year, there was a problem.
We discovered rodent feces in the box and all over our tree.
So, we had to throw out the tree.
I wonder what people think, seeing a Christmas tree in the dumpster.
On the positive side, it gives the dumpster a little Christmas cheer, right?
The rats pooped on Christmas,
