OCD part deux

Actually, if I'm being honest, it's far past the second time I've had OCD...
I am a complete control freak about our Christmas tree. Complete.
To live as a Christmas tree at the House of Graham one must

a) have white lights. NO colored lights allowed, much to my husband's dismay.
b) ornaments are properly spaced and color coded to look 'randomly hung on the tree with great care'
c) must follow strict monochromatic dress code excluding the Faberge eggs my grandmother made forty years ago.


p.s.- any friend of mine does not have blue lights as part of their decor. If you have ignored this code of our friendship, we will not speak until Valentine's Day. I do this because I love.

Apparently, the temple grounds decorator is not your friend. Yep, blue lights at the temple this year. If I see him (it must be a him), I'll tell him you're not speaking to him.

Hahahahaha!! Only clear lights in our household. :) And I can soooo relate. It absolutely kills me every time I walk by our Christmas tree to leave the ornaments my little bug put all in one spot on the bottom of the tree.

What a sad day for me. I've learned that not only am I OCD when it comes to my Christmas tree but I'm also not your friend. Sorry, but I have blue icicle lights hanging from the front of my roof with large white stars hanging in front of them. Here's the really bad news... I LOVE them! I'll miss you. ;)

Steph I totally agree!! Only white light and everything must be hung just right. I have a theme. Like this year it was blue and silver balls only with snowflakes. So I must be Christmas Tree OCD also. And NO ONE should EVER EVER have blue lights of any kind!!!
