Every year, I rush my boys through their Santa gifts so we can head over to my parents. Then, I rush through their presents so we can pick SD up @ noon... Every year. SD spends about an hour at our house and then is back at her mom's.
Not this year. I cannot make everyone happy but I can make MYSELF happy. This year, I'm taking my time with the boys in the morning. I'm leisurely going to my parents house and spending as much time as I can with them. If old man wants to come, he can. If not, he doesn't have to. If he wants to pick up SD @ noon and do Christmas alone - have at it.
I can't rush through another Christmas. It's miserable. Has anyone else decided to stop the rush and just enjoy?
I never make anyone happy, so I might as well make myself happy!
