When I was growing up, my parents always bought a real Christmas tree. I was so used to having a real tree. I thought I would not be able to get a real tree out here in Japan. So, I went to the MCX on base and bought an artificial tree. I came home and set it up immediately. As I was setting it up, I kept looking at it and it just did not look good. My husband told me to just set it up and decorate it and it will start to look good. It still did not look good to me. I took all the ornaments and lights off, put the tree back in the box and returned it. Now, do not get me wrong there are beautiful artificial trees, but they cost a fortune. The one I bought was sixty dollars. That can explain why it looked so crappy. I just came to the conclusion I would not have a tree this year. One day I went to the MCX again and saw they had a tent full of real trees. My heart skipped a beat. I was so happy, I was going to get a real tree! I went inside and asked to buy one, but they were not selling them until after Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, my amazing husband went and bought me a tree. I was so excited to finally set up my tree and see how Jason would react to the tree. Needless to say he was excited. This tree was so tall, full, and smelled so good, there were no bald spots. It was just gorgeous.
As the weeks went by, the tree started to not take the water. It started getting dry, stiff, and started shedding like crazy. I eventually took off the decorations and lights. I did not want to burn down my house with Christmas lights. We are now using my son’s little tree his best friend sent him to put gifts around. I am not ashamed to show you all my fails, I am not perfect and I will never pretend to be perfect. This is my life. I hope you all get a little laugh out of this. To be honest, it is freaking hilarious. My poor tree did not make it to Christmas. I just can not keep plants alive to save my life! I think I will invest in a good artificial tree for next year. Let me know if you all have had any fails during the holidays.
