A few setbacks...

Last night we had some torrential rainfall here. The sirens wailed a few times and we hung out in the closet. But most of the time we were able to be in my current favorite spot by the Christmas tree. However, we experienced a few setbacks...

At one point we looked at our tree and realized half the lights were no longer working. I guess this is what you get when pay $1.50 for them at Dirt Cheap! Also, you will notice my yellow mixing bowl on the floor...yes, we sprung a leak! Or something like that, we still aren't sure. I was just sitting there wrapping presents when suddenly one of them started making a strange noise and liquid began to soak the paper. I was in a particularly ditsy mood and I thought to myself "wow, Aaron must have bought me perfume or something and it burst!" My husband, was a little quicker and ran to the kitchen to get a bowl while informing me it was a leak! The good news is that it only dripped for a minute, then it stopped.

Sigh...wet present!

A third of our tree lights burned out too. I spent the better part of one morning this week undecorating half of the tree so that I could replace the lights.

Find the source of the leak yet? Ditsy... hah! I would've thought the same thing.

In response to your comment at my place regarding six-year-olds and homework...
He only has homework once or twice a week, just one little worksheet... no big deal. But today a big deal -- it's hard to find magazine pictures to cut out that start with the letter Y.

Are you sure it wasn't the leak fusing the lights?

awww . . . Susie, you're so adorable: I thought Aaron must have gotten me purfume!

I love dirt cheap, but you get what you pay for, right?
