Nothing really. I loooove spending time with my family, I'm mostly done shopping for my kids,all family agreed we only buy for neices and nephew , which means I have to buy 3 gifts and there is a budget. I dont host any parties so no party perfection, but I will most likely eat to my death!! Lol.

But now thinking, I will be going to ex mil's house for a bit on Christmas eve and that will be hard as she's got cancer and only is given 6 mo to live. She can't talk, and has to wear a mask because the cancer is eating away her face. My girls haven't seen her in a few months and miss her so much. That will be hard. If she'll even let us come.

 I dont like the stress of trying to come up with enough money to make it a good christmas. its hard. and it makes me sad. very emotional. and i know it shouldnt, but growing up we hardly got any thing. and I want everything for my little girl and husband.

Truly Grateful , For each and every day!!!

Having to negotiate all the family stuff and explaining this year that between my schedule and DH's health we can't drive too far, and anything going on during the week we are likely to miss as well. I love seeing my family, but it looks like I'm going to miss a lot this year :(
