Ornament Overload

The worst holiday disaster that comes to my mind was the year I had to put up two Christmas trees—twice. My mother has been a widow for years, so I have always offered to put up her tree for her. One year, neither tree wanted to stay up, and I had to do both twice. Is it any wonder that I don't enjoy decorating the tree anymore?
