This year as my Mom and I discussed putting up our Christmas trees, we both decided that our garland was worn out and it was time to purchase new. We both loved our old garland but it was getting quite dilapidated and smashed from years of enjoyment.
We trekked to Hobby Lobby to ensure our 1/2 off discount and made our purchases. Evely had fun discovering ornaments as we decided what to get.
We both came home excited to put the new garland on our trees. Mom put hers on and when they came over to help us decorate she put mine on.
Mom stringing my crumby garland!
After the tree was completely decorated, I looked and looked at it trying to like it. It was horrid! It was gaudy and obnoxious. It completely overpowered the tree and you couldn’t even see the ornaments.
Needless to say. . .I went to Walmart and purchased this really cheap stuff and restrung the tree yesterday. It looks better but I am still not loving my tree. We did the same to Mom’s tree. She didn’t like her’s either. What is the deal with that? I am tired of messing with garland, I am determined to stop messing with this. Why is this such a big deal?!!
So, I pose a question for you. . .
Do you all use garland or is it going out of style?
Also, as an update on Mom. . .she is having a CatScan tomorrow morning. They will be looking at her abdomen area and determining how the cancer is responding to the chemo. Please pray for a good report! She need some good news.
Thanks for praying everyone!
