All Good Things Come to an End

Our Christmas tree is coming down today. There are more needles on the ground than on the tree... my carpet looks like a forest bed. It's got to go.

But I've been putting off this wretched day because I've known for some time the poor tree's fate.

My husband has been eagerly anticipating this moment. He's been eyeing the drying dying tree like a fresh batch of beef jerky. He has dreams about taking it out to the farm, waiting for the last little blip of moisture to be sucked from the pine, and then incinerating it in a grand bonfire.

And then the Christmas season will be officially over.

Free Friday Continues:

I'm not sure which states have Einstein Bros Bagels in them (they had them where I hail from), but they're giving out free bagels if you become their fan on Facebook.

Thanks for a tip from Rachel, Starbucks gives out a free music download every week. The free download cards are available near the checkout (so technically you don't have to buy a $5 latte to get one).
