I think I have a problem

Umm, the steem of my Xmas tree is about twice as big as the hole in the stand.
And the only usable toolI found is a bread knife. (That saw was loaned by P, but you could not cut a match with it).


The trouble no matter how I kept carving it, it always stood like a drunkard, leaning heavily one side and the only way it would stand with heavy support from the wall...
I have to admit, there were moments of frustration, when I used language not fitting to this holy day, there was moments when I threw the tree aside, banging my head in the wall.
I had my cell phone in my hand to call my father to ask him to get in his car and come and put these darn tree in its stand (that was after two and half hour "work" and 8 PM... he lives about an hour and some drive away...
Then taking P. way of thinking, with a help of a book under the stand and a piece of string tying the thing to the window knob...

Now I have bloody blisters on my hand (fingers) and bad scratches and sore muscles. But the smile on Chris face made the whole thing worth it.
