The go to Home Depot or Target and spend another dollar or two and get better lights? They really are very inexpensive.

However if you just don't feel like bothering with the tree I understand that.

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" ?

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.

I doubt I'll even have the money for dollar store lights after I pay my rent and electric but will check out Home Depot if I have anything left.

Oh, sorry mama. Christmas does make the check hard to manage.

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.

Is it just you? Or do you have kids at home?

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.

 maybe you could get a small prelit tree from somewhere. They are not that expensive.

That is what I have now, I want to get a new one but just don't have the money to do it. Hopefully by this time next year, Mark will finally get his disability and we can replace the one we have.
