I forgot to water the tree for almost two days! I'm a bad tree parent.
I got home from work, threw my coat over the arm of the couch, and looked over at the tree. The thought of how long it had been since it had been watered flashed into my mind and I freaked out. I actually ran over to the tree to check how much water was left. 'Cause two more seconds of time without water would be catastrophic. I couldn't really see how much water was left so I, like an idiot, shoved my hand into the tree stand. Yup, had full of sap. Apparently water goes in the tree, sap comes out. It created this nice film of clear sap on the top of the water which I inserted my hand into. Awesome. No, sap doesn't wash off your hands well.
My roomie had a small Christmas party last night and, apart from people setting their drinks on my piano... grr..., everything went pretty well. I'm thinking that I'll need to host some sort of get-together next semester when the walls and ceilings get redone. Basically when I'm not completely embarrassed by the house.
