That's it! I'm done fighting! I surrender...to my Christmas tree lights!
We have had an artificial Christmas tree for about 15 years. I love lots of lights and consider it a challenge to wrap every branch in lights from the inside out.
It seems that every year I have to replace a strand or two. But this year it was different! I always test the lights by plugging them in before placing them on the tree. Tonight I had four strands where only half the lights worked....four strands!
I give up! I am not going to replace four strands. This year instead of wrapping each branch, I am spreading them out and living with what I have. I'm not gonna like it, but I will survive.
When I think about all the technology our world has to offer, can someone really not invent Christmas lights that stay lit for more than one year!
I refuse to look at that bare spot on the bottom. Tomorrow after I have cooled down, I might adjust them. But I refuse to buy more lights! The lights win this year!
