And So It Begins

On the plus side:  I bought our Christmas tree yesterday.
On the minus side:  I can't get it to stand up straight in the tree stand, and I am out of enthusiasm for trying.  Also every time I look at it I find myself tilting my head, and my neck is starting to ache.

On the plus side:  I found the lights for the tree in a big carton labelled 'lights."
On the minus side:  so far only about half of them work.

On the plus side:  I found my Christmas cookie recipes.
On the minus side:  no one in my immediate family eats cookies any more.  That's right, no one.  Except me.  And I'm not going to be the fall guy for all those calories.

Advent is a season of pluses and minuses.
