The last few years I have belabored over wether or not we should get a Christmas tree. Then we end up getting one. This year I am skipping the belaboring and just getting the damn tree. Except we will be out of town on my birthday weekend (the time we usually go and get it) so I am a little tempted to bump the festivities up to this weekend. I'm also tempted to make a tree stand as seen on Something's Hiding in Here. Do you think, if I head in to the woods outside of San Diego that I am likely to just find a stump? Heck, I don't even know where the woods "outside of San Diego" are. (This is, um, a desert.) Anyways, have a great holiday weekend!
