Guys, does this happen in your house? Or I am the only lucky guy that gets this hassle ....??

Seems every year about this time, the tree comes down, the decorations get put away... then the other half thinks its a great time to rearrange the furniture in the whole house....

Starts something like this.... Wow with that tree gone, look at the room.... what if we moved the couch there, move that chair to that spot, move that little table here... and on, and on and on..... it goes.

All I want is to sit with my feet up on the stool, and have a hot coffee... but, NOOO its lets rearrange the place.... then after everything is tossed aside... it gets said... " I don't know,... maybe it was better as it was before..."

I give up.....

My mother is like that.

Every time I'm at her house and I need to throw something away the trash is in a different spot.

Not only that, but I'm constantly moving random furniture-y type crap from upstairs to downstairs.. from the basement to upstairs.. downstairs to upstairs.. upstairs to basement.. any and all combinations of 3 floors and a coffee table. Make up your mind woman!

My ex-wife was that kind of person. I never understood that kind of thinking.

That all happens tomorrow here... thankfully we downsized and there aren't nearly as many options for placement.

I did finally convience her a couple years ago to get a smaller tree. It stays decorated and just gets bagged until next year.

"I'm not Mr. Lebowski, YOU'RE Mr. Lebowski. I'm The Dude."
Last year we realized with Rokus on all the TV's we can put them wherever we want.
In two weeks the wife is having rotator cuff surgery which will lead to more furniture rearranging. Need to move the recliner so she can see the TV since she'll be living in it for a few weeks. We have four shoulders between us and this will be our fourth surgery as a family.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I went to the store today... when I got home 1-1/2 hours later, the tree was taken down, the furniture was put back, and the wife and kid were watching TV.

My wife hates unnecessary changes in her life, so our tree goes up in the corner where it stays until Jan.2, when it comes down, all is normal again. no furniture moving required.

Someone needs to modernize and get electricity so he can have lights...

Crossed threads are tight threads.
I live alone, its pretty awesome. Yesterday I was sharpening drill bits on the couch at the coffee table, next to the fireplace raging stuffed with pine and oak, watching sports balls games on tv very loudly...it was quite a party. On a side note, I give the drill doctor 750x mixed reviews, like 3/5 stars.

FYI: burning pine in a fireplace is a bad thing to do. #chimneyfires. Creosote build up from the pine sap collects in the flue and becomes highly flammable and when the creosote gets wet, it creates a toxic odor that can cause nausea and sickness and that same toxic combination will eat away the mortar between the bricks causing chimney collapses. If you have a metal flue, your chances are less, but not 0%.

EDIT: A also live in Florida where chimney's are more aesthetic than functional, but I did clean chimneys in the Florida Panhandle for about 15 years. Your area is definitely different than mine and you may know more about fireplaced/chimneys than I do, because you own one and I only cleaned them. I have seen the damage a chimney fire can do. They can be isolated the the chimney/flue, or they can destroy a whole house. Either way damage is done to a chimney that has had a fire.
