With my husband away on business, I did what any sane mom would do. I undecorated the tree on Dec. 14th. I hauled it out of the house and left it on the porch (indefinitely) and I packed up the ornaments or what's left of them. I then took the leaf blower and opened the double doors to the outside. I blew out the 1,000,000,000,000 pine needles and glass into our back yard, vacuumed up the rest and put the furniture back. My kids watched in silence (they knew better) as their mom had either a manic moment/nervous breakdown or a pure moment of sanity mixed with wisdom and clarity.
