LOL are you sure you were only "HALF" asleep? ha ha ha. I'm sorry about that though. Once we got our cats, we quit putting up a tree because they were too interested in trying to get at the ornaments. In 1985, when Jessica was only 5 years old (she's 32 now - WOW she's 32!) we purchased an artificial tree at Ben Franklin for only $10. We got our cats in spring 2005 and put up our tree that Christmas but not after that. When I had to let the house go in 2006, I left the tree there :o( I have many many fond memories of it, though, all decked out.
LOL you are right, that is what happens when I try to do things half asleep..my brain gets all muddled LOL. I meant the middle third and it is a pre lit tree so there is no way of moving the lights.
First, I don't think there is such a thing as a middle "HALF." With that said, Is there anyway to restring or rearrange the lights from the bottom "half" and the top "half" into the middle "half" ?
We still have three kids at home but I am sure they will live through not having a tree this year. They may be a bit disappointed, but they know money is very tight and are all old enough (22,20, and 15) to understand. Roo will probably be the hardest one to convince but he will get it eventually.
