Making a List, Obsessing Over It. Gonna Find Out....
I went shopping yesterday morning before work, then in the evening after work, with Girlie Girl and Handsome Lad.
I swear, I am working my way up towards excitment.
It is still not clear who is hosting Christmas eve, although Princess Diva is still holding out hopes of being the one to do it. Hm. She is still hospitalized, so that may be wishful thinking. But maybe not! I just don't know. I could do it at my place as well, so that could happen. I wouldn't mind a bit.
I don't know what will happen Christmas morning. Last year, no one (WTG) was feeling pissy or anything, so we were all able to be together for the kids to open their presents. This year, WTG is not speaking to me, so although I'm sure he'd love to have all the kids there with him for Christmas morning, I am not sure if I'd be welcome. Maybe they could come, as a group to my house after they finish there? I don't know. I'll admit. I am feeling a bit anxious and sad about this part of the holiday celebration. I wish WTG would just grow up, although it is foolish to to wish for something like that at this point.
DR says he doesn't really "do" Christmas. He has issues with it. I can fully understand that, as I have my share of issues as well, but I think it may be different when you have kids and they grew up celebrating. I don't feel I can exactly opt out...and I'm not sure I'd want to anyway. But it all leaves me feeling unsure of how this holiday will actually play out. I guess I will see...and really, I'm sure it will be fine in the end. Isn't it always?
What are your Christmas plans?
