How does this happen every year? When we get the decoration box out, it's very full but everything is there. And it all fits. We usually are given one or two new decorations but there are often one or two that break or disintegrate.in a fit of pique, I wrote:Okay, that's it!! We're not going to decorate a tree next year!
Does the decoration box shrink for the week or so that it sits empty?
I just REpacked the box and lo and behold, everything fit (just... sort of... well, almost). And I put packing instructions on the lid of the box.
Maybe we will decorate a tree next year. Just one more time to see how it goes.
(Yesterday, as I walked through a shopping mall hallway on my way to work, I saw some workmen dismantling one of the mall Christmas trees. They were putting the pieces (still decorated) into containers. Maybe THAT'S the way we should go. Just get a fake tree, decorate it once and when Christmas is over, envelope it in a big dust cover and stick it in the basement.)
