Earlier I wrote this:
The day is gloomy and my sunny morning disposition has somewhat faded
but I am enjoying the soft glow from our tree. There is that. :)
I hit publish, turned around and saw that half of the lights on the tree had gone out. HA! I put Nicky to bed, took a shower, crawled into bed and slept for an hour. I feel so much better now and can tackle that darn tree. ;) Less than 6 hours of sleep is hard on me...but that book was worth it.
