So my creative energy was spent on decorating my apartment today. I love Christmas lights and usually can't wait to get them up. My spirit is more than a little lacking this year. I did get them all up including the tree. This being my first year having cats at Christmas time (my own anyways I always had cats growing up) it demanded a creative solution for keeping my small tabletop tree upright. There are two layers of tie downs involved. I hope it holds.
P.S. It's been knocked over three times. Someone keeps chewing through the rope.
