I'm Ready for Christmas

I received this in my e-mail and got a good chuckle over it. It seems like no matter how neatly I put away my lights after Christmas this is what they look like when I take them out the following it would be really tempting to do just like this fellow....:)

The wife has been on my case to get the Christmas lights up for a couple of weeks now. They are up now and for some reason she will not talk to me.

That's the way our lights look when they come out of the box. Maybe that's why my husband didn't put any up last year.

Joanna said...

Oh I think we all recognize that jumbled mess of lights. My husband and I argue the whole time we're trying to untangle them. :-)

lol! That's funny. I've been tempted to do that here, too. I'm the one who puts up Christmas decorations, so I try extra hard to make sure everything goes back neat as can be the previous year. But it never fails to be messy when I open everything back up again. gah!

You asked how to add things to your side-bar, so here's my basic knowledge of how to do it. (I'm sort of a techno-phobe, so I know just enough to get me by. lol!):

1)Got to 'Dashboard' (click on the link in the upper right corner)

2)Click on 'Layout'

3)Click on 'Add a Gadget'

4)Scroll down to 'Picture', Click on it.

5)You should have saved the picture/award to your "Pictures" folder or even to the "Desktop"

6)So, now click "Browse"

7)Once you find your photo (where you left it. lol!), then click 'Open'.

8)It will then load it. Be patient.

9)Then just click 'Save'

And if you want to move any of your 'Gadget' photos around, all you have to do is Right-click on it, keeping your finger down, while lifting the box to wherever you want it (up or down the column).

I hope my instructions weren't too confusing.
If you need anymore help, just let me know. I'll try to help :)

Oh that is just hilarious! I have a new plan for this year - I will let the chickens have a go at them and see if that will help untangle them!!

Kara said...

Oh TOO funny! I needed a good laugh today thanks! :)

That is HILARIOUS! My hubby couldn't agree more... He hates putting them up. I think I'll hire my dad this year. ;) He seems a bit more tolerant.

LOL If my hubby had to put the lights up that's what they'd look like! Good thing I do it.

Jeez, this is exactly the jumble I pulled out of my (I swear) previously well-organized Christmas light bin. What is up with that? Funny picture - and look how many of us can relate! :-)

I just swung by here to see your Silent Sunday and scrolled down. This is a riot! I love it and am now motivated to hang Christmas Lights for the first time ever. Thanks for the smile.
