Conversation last night:
Phillip: I think our tree is really starting to lean.
Me: Yeah, we should take that down tomorrow.
View this morning:
Oh no! Had you already started taking ornaments off? At least the floor is carpeted! My parents' fell over one year onto hardwood, and they ended up losing a bunch of ornaments. For a few years afterwards, they were tying some fishing line around the trunk and tying it to the wall. :)
Yes, but only a few. We broke some, but we have cheap ornaments, so not a huge loss. The biggest problem was the huge pile of water in the middle of the floor. I used some Wool-ite scrub on it, which worked wonderfully. So wonderfully, in fact, that that one spot is now cleaner than the rest of our carpet.
