1. What is your favorite ornament on your Christmas Tree?

2. Do you decorate at work (or you s.o. if you don't work)?

3. Are you done shopping?

Meh.  Sometimes you can't anticipate the dumbbutt things kids and animals will do that will end up with something broken.  For instance, way back in the condo days when my buffet had a hutch on top, I never ever dreamed that Buster would ever be able to leap to the top of the hutch, so that's where I put the metal wine rack.  And yet that's exactly what Buster did--got tangled up in the rack and come crashing down, bringing with a huge bottle of peach schnapps (that shattered on the kitchen floor and splashed all over the carpet in the living room).  I was certainly glad that he managed to separate himself from the rack and the peach schnapps bottle before they hit the ground, so he wasn't hurt (beyond his dignity).  but that was one heck of a nasty mess to clean up and I never did get all of the schnapps out of the carpeting.

Not everything is predictable.

Why the hostile presumption and hostile line of questioning, Jamblessed? I've got multiple pets and multiple kids and lots of breakable stuff. Occasionally something gets broken.  Are you presuming I'm stupid enough to leave something irreplaceable in a place where it's likely to get accidentally broken?

Jamblessed, you are assuming a non-existent category, "Out of my kids' reach?" It is to laugh.

First a cat was compared to a room, now a cat is being compared to a small child? LoL

<p>We have four cats and two dogs, and only one of the cats is a problem, but that one is a total jerk cat.  I have hurricane  jars full of ornaments in my entryway, and I kept finding broken ornaments on the floor and couldn't figure out how it was happening.  Then my son warched jerk cat take an ornament out of the jar and carry it in his mouth to the highest spot in the room, and drop it on the ceramic tile floor just for the fun of watching it break.  Needless to say, the ornaments-in-jars are no longer kept in a cat-accessible room.</p>

Did you keep breakables out of your kids reach when they were small?

Heck, if I've yelled, "Maisie, stop chasing your brothers!  Trini! Leave the [insert obscenity]ing tree alone!  [Insert obscenity here]it, Cyduck, stop chasing Maisie!  You hate it when she chases you!" once, I've yelled it a million times since putting the tree up the Sunday after Thanksgiving.  And they're all the same species.

There's a post by PKA on the first page of this epically stupid thread saying they are thinking of not putting up a tree because of a cat and dog who like to chase each other through the house.  That's all a normal person would need to know.

They way we have celebrated the holidays has evolved quite a bit over the years, somethings have remained constant, the family coming together for example, but not all things.  As I grow older I have realized that while traditions are important, it is also important to accept change and differences that different family members bring to the celebrations and gatherings.

Nobody said it was a big deal, that drama was created by Santababy.  I'm glad that your dog and cat got along well and the dog didn't chase the cat around the house.  

Unless you want to start reporting more details of your personal life to the board, it seems quite silly for you to expect me to report all the things that are occuring in my life at any given time.  Well, unless you wish your comments to sound hypocritical?
