My house, exactly!! Between the cat chewing off the lights and the dogs taking turns using the tree skirt as a pee pad, I feel it is hopeless!! My tree is already back in the bag and ready to go out to the shed! Ha ha!
Thankfully, I have a little tree that sits on the stand by my chair. The dogs can't get to it. LOL. My house is so little, I don't have room for a big one any more. It goes up easily and comes down the same way. I will take it down in a few days. Then it goes back in the box and out to the garage until next year.
