Hitting the Big Screen

Last October, we bought our first 40-inch flatscreen TV and were loving it. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we cut down the prettiest Christmas tree we could find, brought it home and decorated it wonderfully. A few days later, at 4 o'clock in the morning—on my husband's birthday, no less—we awoke to a huge crash. The tree had fallen, taking with it numerous ornaments and the TV, which was on a stand next to it. We not-so-fondly refer to last year's tree as our $700 Christmas tree!
