On Sunday, we went out and got our Christmas tree. Brought it in the living room on Sunday night. Monday, there was a somewhat bad smell in the living room, but I figured we have poopy diapers and dogs that haven't had baths in a while....
Tuesday, it smelled like garbage.
Wends it was worse.
Yesterday - it was disgusting. I only was in the living room for maybe 30 minutes and I couldn't take it anymore.
Aaron had pretty much looked everywhere - and couldn't figure it out (we were thinking a dead mouse in the heater or something like that). Finally, out of the fog of sleep deprivation, he put one and one together and realized the smell started when the tree entered the house. And that when he trimmed off the bottom, a birds nest fell out. We took a flashlight and tried to find the source of the rot... one of those times when you both hope you do and don't find the problem? We couldn't find it - so we took off the decorations and took the tree outside.
The smell is now out of my living room - but I have no Christmas tree. I'm not sure it's worth it to get a new one 5 days away from Christmas.
We both has good checkups today - Hulk is living up to his name, and weighs 9.5 pounds! I'm also healing well, and am within 5 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight,which is cool. OK - off to look in the freezer for food - I'm considering cooking dinner! Shocking!
