Clump #8: Take down Christmas tree and drag to the curb.
Here it is in happier days (for us, that is). The cutting of the tree. And what a great tree it has been. Growing up, every year we would all look at the tree and remark, “I really think this is the best tree we’ve ever had!” Well, it happened again. It was the best ever tree. Our younger daughter took all the ornaments off, and my husband and I dragged it out. Tomorrow is the last day for tree recycling pick-up. Otherwise, this clump of natural beauty would be around until at least July 4th. Sometimes a deadline is a good thing.
