I saw a lot of "My Christmas was ruined" posts

Posted by   + Show Post
Did anyone just have a perfect day?

Other than my 18 year old not being with us, our day was perfect. All of our other kids were there. The ladies that I do foster care for got to spend the morning with their families and made it home in time before we unwrapped gifts. There was such a positive vibe from everyone and a lot of excitement and happiness.

We didn't go overboard on Christmas this year. We actually did a lot less than our norm as far as gifts. There wasn't one complaint. We got our thank yous. I loved my gifts and hubby loved his. There was lots of thoughtfulness and fun.

Our day could not have been better. No complaints from me at all.

I feel very lucky to have my family.

For those that are bitching about their Christmases...

We spent ours driving down to see family (which is fine, really) the next day we got up and opened pour presents. It was great.  My Mom wasnt feeling well so she went up to bed. Just before I started on our Christmas dinner, I wnet up to check on her. She had fallen out of bed and hit her head.AND vomited on herself.

We got her up and into bed-I helped change her and helped her into the bathroom and then back to bed. She wasn't oriented wel as to what was going on.

So after a bit of arguing we called an ambulance (she had  heart attack 2 weeks ago and a stent put in)

The kids all stayed home with my SO.

Stayed at the hpospital for 5 hours while she was diagnoised with congestive heart failure and a UTI. She was admitted overnight.

Never did eat Christmas dinner.

But hey I realize it could have been a lot worse.

So I laugh at people who whine about the small stuff on Christmas.

Very ture! Your kids are the most important thing you could ever have. If you don't have them money, the perfect body don't seem to be important anymore. I hope you have a good new year!

The 24th was all about us and wonderful. We traveled for the first time on the 25th. My mom went psycho on me and hasn't talked to me since. It has been really peaceful. Lol
