TREE 14??? NO! Wwwwaaa! H-E-L-P!!!


So the Christmas Tree Fiasco CONTINUES!  I wont put you all through the MESS of trees I have, 4 trees to be exact ...so in brief...My Main 10 foot tree...TOOOO  MANY Strands of lights out to even consider putting it up!  So Plan B is take one of the Kids Trees (that normally go in their rooms)...They are 7 and 1/2 foot (Smaller then my Main tree which has already put me in Interior Designer OCD-ville!)  SO, my Handy Dandy Zapp box is fixed and the Hub brought it home yesterday evening...which means I lost the whole day yesterday I had planned to decorate the trees...ANYHOOO...We put up one of the kids trees and IT had strands out as well...So we Zapped it....Nutin, Nada, lights NO WORKIE! So I strung on a NEW strand (That Completely worked, we checked it before I went to the trouble of stringing it, Besides, it was a BRAND NEW STRAND,  just out of the box!)  Strung em on, Plugged it in, and i hear a POP, aaaaaand low and behold, another strand went out!  IM GONNA CRY and Yank my hair OUT!!!!!  So...lets put up the OTHER kiddos tree (Identical to the 1st kidoos tree) GUESS WHAT???!!!  Strands of lights OUT!  Paaaaalease...Get me out of Christmas Tree Haydes!!!  H-E-L-P!!!!  So...my husband heads to WalMart last night at around 10:00!  I was BEYOND FRUSTRATED and DONE, D-O-N-E  for the night...I wanted to lay on the floor and throw an actual TEMPER TANTRUM!  So, today is a NEW DAY...Its Thanksgiving and I have a New attitude  :)    So...I will be decorating a tree today with or WITHOUT lights...No matter how CRAAAZY it makes me!  I will post TOMORROW!!!
A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION:
 All 3 trees with the lighting issues are FLOCKED trees (Thats my FAVORITE kind of tree)...The look of Snow....GORGEOUS!  The 1 tree that is up and working is NOT flocked...Coincidence???

HELP!  What do you think?   Is the Flocking on my trees the CULPRET? 

So...HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
Im am so Thankful to God today for Christ who saved us all, for my Family, our health, our home, the food we are going to be eating....but this year, I have all my new Blogging friends i am thankful for as well!  Thanks to you all for my new friendships...you all make this Blogging Adventure Worth it and So FUN!  I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE all of you!

Blessing  xoxokara

Oh Kara, I'm soooo with you on Christmas Tree light frustration. They work when they're off - why don't they work when they're on the tree??? I've had an in-my-head temper tantrum many a time over those lights!!

Hi Kara~ thinking the Christmas lights are all good for a season and then have issues in a conspiracy to get you to buy more each year... lol! :) Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Oh all of your trees are so pretty and all of the decor is stunning. Lights are always such a pain. I leave the room and leave that up to the DH to figure out. I sincerely hope you and all your family have a very special and Blessed Thanksgiving. Hugs, Marty

Melissa Miller said...

Kara I'm not sure about the lights. Hmmmm...:)
I have never had a flocked tree before but I do think they look truly magical and lovely. I can't wait to see your gorgeous trees!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
Warmly, ~Melissa :)

Tete said...

It all comes down to craftmanship- but here is a thought- you must be plugging these lights all into the same outlet. Try another outlet. You may have a faulty outlet that is allowing a power surge and taking out the lights? Just a thought?
I would be pulling my hair out by now. I applaud your continued effort and the fact none of the trees have landed out in the yard.
Hapyy Thanksgiving- Tete

Sorry about the tree fiasco. Not fun. Hoping you have better luck today! Happy Thanksgiving!

Danielle said...

I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time with your trees! You poor thing!

Traci said...

I'm with Tete, maybe it's the outlet. Whatever the cause I'd be ready to punch someone in the face over it. There could be another explanation...ME! I'm absolutely DYING to see your tree & I have ZERO patience so this whole light fiasco isn't sitting well with me!!!!
