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?

Here is where I explained to you that bord talked about the rescue dog and why.  You quoted the comments in your response to me.  I again suggest a re-read of the post if you are still unclear about this whole tangent.

There re so many things we do this time of year SOMETIMES. Some years we go to the Nutcracker or to see The Christmas Carol. Sometimes we don't. Sometimes I make certain kinds of cookies; sometimes another. Sometimes we go to 12 pm services. Sometimes we go earlier. We have always had. Christmas tree, but one year we might not, who knows?

No, I said it was mentioned earlier in the thread and if my comments to you about this subject were after the comment, then yes it was earlier in the thread.  That's pretty much how it works.  I didn't say it, I have told you that about three times now and you have even quoted those comments multiple times.  I told you that bord said it, in one of my many times going over this with you.

Because it was getting silly someone else had to explain it for you? Makes no sense. You were never going to tell us. Not sure why it is such a secret though.

I do not think that things not being the same from year to year means screwing traditions. Change is a part of life.  Christmas now as the parent of three adult children with their own households is different from Christmas 10 years ago with a 20 year old, 18 year old and a 14 year old,, which was much different from 10 years previous with a 10 year old, 8 year old and 4 year old,  or 10 years before that with an infant.

How Christmas is celebrated has to do wtih the circumstances of that year not of all the previous years.   That things are differenent from year to year does not mean better or worse, it just means different.

No it was getting silly that someone had to explain it to you.  I never said it was a secret, I thought you had grasped the situation way back when you said you understood.  If you didn't understand the dog/cat issue, you should have just said so, I could have explained the situation before, but you keep assuring me that it wasn't complex.  Turns out, it seems to be quite complex for you to understand.

This is getting no where Pumpkin. You didn't want to tell your entire story and it is your "friend"  who did it (I would hope she would have messaged you before but it didn't sound like it, she just took it upon herself to tell your story to strangers---nice friend you have there). Not sure why you wouldn't say foster dog that is not trained from the beginning but I guess this has filled up your day and night. 

Have a wonderful night. Hopefully you will find something else (how about spending time with that family of yours you boasted about all day). Laughing

Satanbaby, do you actually know what "stranger" means?

Deciding a couple of various years to not put up a tree means I think "screw tradition?"  Like that's the only tradition we could ever have?

We have lots of traditions - not all surrounding Christmas.  And definitely putting up a tree every year isn't the only one.

Are you really trying to blame your lack of reading and understanding of a very simple situation on myself and bord?  That is quite the diversion, having a foster dog wasn't a big secret and if you would have just said that you didn't understand the whole dog chasing cat around the house situation, instead of pretending that you did, I would have explained in more detail to you that piece of my "story" as you call it.  These are fluff questions, not "stories", try treating them that way and being honest in your understanding or not understanding of situations.

It filled up your day and night, you are the one that didn't and still doesn't understand a very simple situation.

I'm having a great night, thanks.
