And that's it for the tree.  Second knock down, broke 2 ornaments and he's walking around looking like a sparkle goth kitty.  Little Hooman brushed him down so he doesn't ingest the glitter.  The tree is back in it's box till next year and the floor vacuumed for a second time today.  He didn't do it on purpose, he was doing kitty curiosity things & his claws caught the skirt and down it came.  Le sigh.  It could have been worse. 

Should I mention that he attempted to eat the straw from my drink earlier?

Oh no! I'm glad only a couple of ornaments were damaged. Maybe you can anchor it to the wall next year? Or since it's an artificial tree- you could try putting the base in a bucket of concrete to act as a counterweight.

@catlady no straw or plastic item is safe from him. He won't eat it exactly, but he'll chew the hell out of it! @Bethella I'll try to remember that! This years table was definitely a no-no move. 

He's currently trying to break into the tree box. That'll be put into the spare room by bedtime.

this is why we don't put a tree up with Death & Destruction. Just no. They also love to chew/claw plastic bags, boxes, shoes, anything they can stick their claws into...geez...I blew big bucks on a kitty tree and well...ya know? 

Thor...you are an awesome example of feline-ness. You have a PhD in cat!

I attached hooks to the ceiling, and tied the tree to it, and then tied it at the other side to the cabinets it is behind (that I hardly use anyway). First year since having the kittens (who are now two) that the tree remained standing.

Idea: Christmas cat trees. They come in green and are decorated with cat toy ornaments. Kitty can’t knock it over.

      I don’t give him enough credit for that kind of deception. I feel like it’s more likely he didn’t lie but was new to the idea of no bc, taken in by the perfect Duggar family and was ready to go all-in on their wacky beliefs, and has slowly drifted back to his original starting point (conservative but secular Christian) and dragged Jill with him. 

      Reversion to the mean. 

      I think Cathy has a lot to do with that. She probably sat him down and said ‘get your head out of your a__?’ (Maybe not those exact words.) Get a career and limit the size of your family.

      The ancient rabbis (in the Sifra, a 4th century CE commentary) were sure they found a prohibition on lesbianism in the Bible. Here it is, guys:

      Leviticus 18:3 "You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived, and you shall not do as they do in the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you. You shall not follow their statutes."

      And what were they doing in Egypt and Canaan? LESBIANISM, obviously.

      I'm... not fully convinced by this interpretation.

      I don't think many people would be! What on earth were they thinking? I'd be interested to see what the translation of the word statutes is; to me it implies modeling their laws after the Egyptian or Canaanites

      Heathen that I am, I was educated by Jesuits, and graduated summa cum laude.  I guess they taught me very well, and at the time of my graduation my father was an Assembly of God minister.  A life-long friend graduated with me, then went on to -- horrors! -- Jesuit law school.  She's now a guardian at litem who would tear Beccy and Cam a new one.  He wouldn't know what hit him if he had to deal with her.

      The last thing this family needs right now is donations of "clothes, canned goods and toiletries."  If any of them had watched Andrea's channel they would know that there is literally nowhere to store those things in that tiny hoarded up house.  And I am not being mean.  It is tiny.  And it is hoarded up up to the rafters with stuff and children, albeit in an "organised" way. 

      Yeah, that's just crazy talk.  They lost their mom, not their house.  They already had clothes, and this hasn't changed that.  I'm sure whoever asked means well, but it's going to create an unnecessary burden for the family.

      The sad thing that I was thinking about, is that for a long time they will probably be eating things that Andrea made and froze, and using items (laundry pods and the like) that she made with her own hands. When they get to the bottom of that supply, it's probably going to be crushing.  Or an odd mix- crushing to have it, and crushing to run out of it.  

      It's not like she was sick for a long time, and had relinquished control of the home- she was keeping house as recently as last week, from the sounds of things.  She is still everywhere they turn, and that has to be something else... I can't imagine.

      I have no shortage of sympathy for those children.  Not many things sadder, than a group of little ones losing a parent.  I'm glad Tom's planning to spend some time off work to be with them and figure things out.  It's hard to think of a workable solution for many of the problems they now face.

      Interesting @picklepizzas. I guess when they said they’d be leaving it up to God when they got married that included birth control. Does that mean that Derick lied on the questionnaire? 

      I don’t give him enough credit for that kind of deception. I feel like it’s more likely he didn’t lie but was new to the idea of no bc, taken in by the perfect Duggar family and was ready to go all-in on their wacky beliefs, and has slowly drifted back to his original starting point (conservative but secular Christian) and dragged Jill with him.
