I haven't put up the tree yet. I wanted to do it Friday but I was so exhausted from Thanksgiving that I slept in and then spent the day just being lazy.
My schedule for the week includes the usual dinner with Yaya Monday, lunch with Nana on Tuesday, and (in addition to laundry and grocery shopping) a coffee date on Wednesday. I hope I'll have time to put the tree up on Thursday. A week late isn't too bad, right?
I don't know when your family puts up their Christmas tree, but Mom has always done it on the day after Thanksgiving. Especially after my brother went off to college, Thanksgiving weekend was the only time he was home between Thanksgiving and Christmas and we always helped her bring up the boxes from the basement, put together the tree, and decorate it before he headed back up to school in Iowa. It kind of became a tradition.
