Too Many Stockings, Not Enough Ornaments

So I *finally* got my marking done, which meant I was allowed1 to put up my Christmas tree! I actually finished my marking earlier this week, but I was in Vancouver for two days of meetings yesterday and today, so I had sleepovers at friends’ places in Vancouver on Wednesday & Thursday nights so I wouldn’t have to drive in from the ‘burbs in rush hour (and in a blizzard!)2 and thus was not home to put up my tree.

When I bought my Christmas tree last year, I was living in a teeny tiny Vancouver apartment, so having a skinny tree was perfect as I didn’t have room for anything bigger. But now that I have a living room the size of a European nation, it looks kinda small:

My Christmas tree is too small. Or my living room is too big.

So I took this other photo and cropped it, so it doesn’t look quite so tiny:

But in real life – yeah, it’s way small. Also, I don’t have nearly enough ornaments. I have an idea of one that I’m going to make, but I’ll have to check out some stores to see if there are other ones that I like that I can add to my collection.

Unlike Christmas tree ornaments, however, I seem to have too many stockings. I am just one woman, yet I seem to have three Christmas stockings:

The stockings were hung on the bookshelf with care

The stockings were hung on the book case with care.

Now I just need Santa to leave some hotties under my Christmas tree, and I’ll be set!

  1. where by “allowed” I mean, I allowed myself to put it up. It was my reward to motivate me to finish my marking. []
