feeling the pinch

I saw on Facebook yesterday that Westwood Garden Haven has a limited selection of Christmas trees this year due to the tree shortage. Exactly why there is a tree shortage, I don’t know (especially since we live so near the Christmas tree capital of the world–Indiana, PA). So, Jake borrowed his dad’s truck and we went to pick out our very expensive (because with the shortage comes higher prices) tree yesterday afternoon. Between having to borrow Brian’s truck, which won’t exactly be an option once Jake moves out, and the tree prices (I thought they were too expensive before), I think I’m back on the artificial tree bandwagon. I’ll have to check around to see if I can get a good deal on one after the holidays. I’m definitely going to get something on the smaller side. The tree we had before (which now lives with Brian) was kind of massive.
