I have killed another one......

My green thumb and the economy have something very sinister in common. Lately, I have been going broke trying to keep a "Money Tree" alive.

I just don't understand it because in the past, I have always been noted for my green thumb, but lately, my plants have been short lived. The one above, to be honest, I think I murdered by accident by over fertilizing it and it makes me sad because I have had it almost 2 years. It originally had three trunks, but 2 died and the third was pretty happy until I did it in....... Rest in peace.

At Whole Foods, I spotted this one

and thought I would give it another try. I vow not to overwater it, or over fertilize it and to talk nicely to it, in hopes of the good financial luck it is supposed to bring. Here is the good luck it has brought so far, in the form of theater tickets.... a birthday gift from my very special daughters. The card said I needed some Broadway therapy!!! Yes, I do... thanks Amanda and Alison!

At least, it seems, that money grows on trees for them. And maybe, the luck of the Money Tree will do its thing for my finances, too. Here's to keeping it alive.
