O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

It was a pretty typical January morning in Michigan. A couple of inches of new snow on the ground, and more on the way. It was a balmy 33 degrees when I headed out to w*rk this morning, but the weathermen were promising MUCH colder temperatures for the drive home (5 degrees by 4 pm).
Now that the Christmas Season is OFFICIALLY over (even for the Catholic Church), I need to get serious about getting my tree down. The thing is, we recently moved our "family room" to our newly finished basement. The tree is in our new "grown-up" living room, taking up what would be an otherwise vacant corner. Not a lot of motivation to get it out of there - other than the fact that it stopped drinking water about two weeks ago! The boys want to leave it there, but even the hardiest of firs will EVENTUALLY start dropping needles (probably whole branches when it get brittle enough!)
So, that's our agenda for tomorrow. The boys will be home from school (Teacher In-Service day), so I'll put them to work . . . UN-decorating the tree.

  1. Congratulations on pursuing your fulltime dream!!! We would love to join you out there but our son who is a freshman does not want to go. Was there any convincing to do?
