It is strange how some people get their jollies. It is never bad to offer support and encouragement to another person going thru a rough time. I think we should all hold our heads up. We did nothing wrong. In fact, I was quite proud of us!

I started putting my 2nd tree up last night. Thanks to another DISer's suggestion, I am putting the lights on each separate tree section. This way, when it comes time to take it down, I will be able to leave the lights on the branches. I don't know why I never thought of this myself!

We have "Shop With A Cop" tomorrow morning. We will be taking out a group of about 40 kids!

I have had 2 birthdays in the past week. Sunday is my DBF's birthday, then I can think about Christmas.

I figured it out after a few minutes lol. There was a popular thread that a lot of posters followed and wished the OP well on. Turns out it was a sham and everyone was duped.(I don't know how it was found out.)

Would love to know how it was found out. It sounded too good to be true, but..... I do hope the starter of that particular thread gets some mental health help. He or she obviously craves attention.

I have no idea what I missed, but I do have to ask you all if you always assume what someone says online is true?
I'm pretty cynical so I don't. I may post on a thread and wish someone well, but if it comes out they were lying I don't really care. I kind of expect it.
Its definitely different when you've been on a board for awhile and you do "get to know" the other posters, so you can tell who is genuine. If its a newbie, and they have an incredible sob story I guess I'm always a bit suspicious.
Anyway just a thought, I have no idea what thread you guys are talking about.

So sad someone would make something up like that. You all gave loads of support (the thread had over 1000 replies, right?) It's just weird how detailed all her accounts were, and how realistic it all seemed. I wonder how they worked out it was a fake. Would be nice if we could know why.

I assumed people weren't lying because I don't understand why lying to people you have never met (or will probably never meet) would be satisfying or rewarding. It's much more satisfying to lie to people you know well...preferably family!

The "7 months...." thread I'm assuming? I never trust any sob story threads if it's a new poster or someone saying "I post her frequently so I'm posting my sob story under a fake username...".

As for Christmas, I'm all set except for my oldest DD, my wife and food for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day breakfast.

Okay, so I guess I'm not really ready at all.

Too bad that someone is so...needy for attention maybe...that they have to post fake stuff.

But, hey, life happens right?

It won't stop me from offering support....

Plus, you never know, maybe something someone posted on that thread helped someone else who was reading it....the Lord works in mysterious ways sometimes....

As far as Christmas, I'm father along than I expected to be at this point. INside the ouse all decorated, trees up (regular one and Disney one), about 1/2 the shopping done (although I don't have a lot anymore and it's mostly gift cards & money at this point, with a cute little something so the recipient has something to open). Outdoor lights & 2 blow up Mickeys will go out this weekend.

Was is that one? I have to admit I thought it was baloney from the start. In my job you get a sick sense about people and my "spidey senses" were right then.

I think there are some people who just need attention, and they go to some strange lengths to get it.

If that was the thread, I think I read the OP but decided it was too much like a soap opera to get involved.
