RAIN!!!!! DECEMBER!!!!

Is this going to be the second year in a row without sledding? No snowmen? No ice skating? What is going on????
I KNOW!!! As much as people complain about snow and the cold, it's NY, it's supposed to be like that!! I'm not asking for a blizzard, I just want Christmas weather!! Wearing my mittens and scarves. Cuddling under a blanket with my BF. Enjoying the fireplace and having hot chocolate because it's so gosh darn cold out! And at my job (selling and cutting xmas trees) people aren't as 'in the spirit' because the weather just isn't cooperating. Let's go get a christmas tree, in the rain...ugh I feel ya!

wow, thanks for the update on how & why. Great detective work.

Happy to say I was always a little skeptical, but did post maybe twice. Would never had offered to send anything though. I have only done that twice over a decade ago elsewhere. One was a VHS tape no longer in production someone wanted for a child & I no longer wanted it. Other was a very long time popular posters spouse had passed away.

Hook,line and sinker!!! I even shed a happy little tear when I read that Henry was born. Heck, I even was trying to figure out a way to send a little gift!

If anything good came out of this saga (which I was suckered into believing, too) I saw the genuine kindness of so many of my fellow DISers! You guys are truly the best!

Well I am really happy it wasn't true! I was 7 months pregnant when the post started too (our "due dates" were two weeks apart), and I was really sad for that poor lady. It was an entertaining read, but I do have to say that I while I bought it all along, I was a little skeptical (and jealous!) when "Henry" arrived right on his due date. Everyone knows 1st time moms usually go late, and just about no one has the baby on their actual due date!

Its kind of reminding me of this new show on MTV called 'CATFISH'. Has anyone seen that show? People scamming people on the internet in relationships. Really sad for the innocent party that allowed themselves to get sucked into this so-call relationship only to find out it was one big scam.

These scammers need psychiatric help.
YES! I have been watching a few of the Catfish shows and I can't believe what some of those people fall for, such as waiting years to meet someone like that. That's Cray Cray, as my kids would say.

I don't want to give myself points over the other thread so I'll just share my pics of my mantle! I'm so so slowly decorating my house and this is the first thing done, well almost done. DH needs to help me hang a few more things.

I've done the berries and the greenery for a few years now, but the reindeer and the holly were my MIL's from when DH was growing up so I repurposed them after we inherited everything.
Sorry for the grainy pics, I took them with my phone.

First, I am happy for a myriad of reasons. EDITING. I forgot we're not allowed to talk about closed threads. But I'll leave this one in -

One, to all the women that were on that thread. Sighing. Such wonderful support. Honestly I feel like Disney Doll - who knows who was impacted by any of our words. The way we all circled her was truly beautiful. And impacted me in a wonderful way. Her fake story certainly doesn't wipe any of that out.

(and so thrilled for no pets left!!!)

That was where the fake-o-meter went off for me. 1st time babies more often then not are NOT born on the EDD. It just screamed "fake" to me at that time.

I hope whomever it was got whatever satisfaction they were looking for, though! Sad cry for....something.

And, if anyone knows who it was...PM me, please!!!

Tree is up and decorated; house is decorated inside & out. Have bought all Angel tree gifts but 1. Bought 2 other gifts! I need to get in gear. But I'm still not sure what to get DS yet. I have some ideas, just not sure which ones to get.

I had to chuckle a little bit.
My first child came 14 days early.
My second came right on his due date.


I SWEAR I'm the real deal. What you see (read) is what you get!

(Just having fun with you.... )

I never read the entire thread. Checked out a post or two early on and read the ending after it was closed to see what happened. Sorry she sucked in so many people and I hope no one was hurt by it.

As for Christmas, I am so NOT ready. But I'll get there once finals week is over.

I agree!

I hope no one sent anything either. How awful.

What did you buy? I got mine some lounge pants and a scarf. Not sure what else to get him. I need stocking stuffer ideas.
