On the topic of Christmas and the holidays, I did manage to put up all of our stockings and we do have our tree up and decorated. Our tree looks a little bit like the Charlie Brown Christmas tree since we're down a lot of ornaments after our cat Jingle took down our tree and broke it in half last year. Jason seemed a bit miffed as Carter and I hung up the stockings. We have stockings for me, Carter and Jason, and of course the World's Cutest Fainting Goats, and Oscar the feral cat, and Jingle and Joy the house cats, and Ewen the dog, my horse Bonnie, Timbit the worst pony ever, and Sparky the best donkey ever. That gives us a total of 13 stockings.
Jason: That seems to be an excessive number of stockings
Jason: There's 3 of us and 13 stockings
Me: Well of course the pets have stockings
Jason: I feel like 10 pets is excessive
Me: We have more than 10 pets, I never made stockings for the pet cows
Jason: I feel that 13 pets is extremely excessive
Me: Why? I don't understand this. My parents, sister and I had way more than 13 pets at Windy Hills Farm
Jason: (getting grumpier by the second) But that's not normal. No one has that many pets. Normal people don't have that many pets! (this last part was spoken with conviction)
Me: I like being abnormal
Jason: Oscar doesn't even count as a pet. We can't even touch him!
Me: Oscar has clearly chosen us as his family. I get that we can't touch him or get closer than about 3 feet away, but he's only been around what, four years now? He just needs more time.
Jason: Silence (a good choice when you realize the conversation is going nowhere)
And that's what the holiday season is like at the Webb house. Now I need to find some time to make a list of people I need to shop for, figure out gifts, and hope they are all eligible for Prime shipping on Amazon.
