After visiting no less than four tree lots, after thomas and Finn quit on me I finally found the one, at the Cumming's lot. Had to talk them down on the price a bit, but I am glad for my annoying single mindedness when it comes to this matter.
I am not much for ornaments anymore, they weight on my mind, like visual clutter. Finn however doesn't share in this OCD tendency, and it's cruel to except a child to understand. We therefore went to Walmart this morning where $15 bought us all the joy I had never thought $15 could buy, for the both of us!
