'Trouble'- 4....Karen- 0
Last night had me in tears of frustration. All I wanted to do after supper and kitchen cleaned up, was get on here and relax my legs since I was on them all afternoon. Then I hear a CRASH. Of course I had no doubt it was Jazz aka Trouble. I reluctantly went to see just what he'd done.
The little Santa Tree in the living-room was a victim of his. It is a 4 ft tree (one of those that come in a big urn from Michaels, I got it a few years ago). I put all my Santa ornaments on it, plus others things. It was on the carpet, ornaments scattered around, and some shattered.
Of all my Santa ornaments, only 8 were 'special and pricey'. A set of Santas a friend got me several years ago on QVC. They are glass figures of Santa as a fireman, a policeman, etc. So after I put the tree back on the table, and saw some shattered ornaments, I found that Jazz had broken FOUR of those eight special Santas. I was just sick, and in tears. I had to redo the other ornaments on the tree, pick up the glass, then vacuum.
After which I came in here to get online and distract myself from being so upset. Our server, Cox, was having a problem shortly after I got on. Its now 2 am, and starting to work again. Good thing since I can't sleep.
To make matters worse, when I was down on my hands and knees picking up the shattered Santas, with tears running down my face, Mr O walks up to see what happened. I told him I don't know why I even bothered to try and decorate this year! He says "because you love it"....well I realize he was trying to say something positive, but THAT wasn't the right thing to say at that particular moment.
Anybody want an orange cat? I'll pay you to take him!
