Christmas 2010

I am so happy that this day is over. I normally love Christmas, but not this year. We have had such a run of bad luck and I have been so down that I just could not get into the spirit this year. I stayed up very late to clean the house. We got up about nine this morning to watch the kids open presents. I was not able to get them much, I think that's part of the reason I was so upset. I know that Christmas is about so much more than that but I like to make  my kids happy. Its amazing how fast kids change. My granddaughter last month at her first birthday party wanted  nothing to do with opening her gifts. Today she opened them like a pro, she took  her time and fully inspected what she got. We had to pry the toys away to get her to the next one or we would still be sitting there. After presents we all relaxed for a while. My step daughter and her boyfriend stopped over for a while. Its nice to see her happy and pregnant. Our relationship has not been the same for a long time. That's a subject for another day. She is having my first grandson. Braydon Michael. I totally love that name. After their visit we went to moms for dinner. It was nice but Troy was not feeling well so we were only there for a couple of hours. Since Delilah was at her dads for a couple of hours I am going to bring her to moms in the morning for her to open her gifts. My daughter and her x have decided to try shared custody. We had her all this week and he will take her tomorrow until next Sunday. I am going to miss her. It seems like all I do anymore is stress though. I worry about how Sam is taking care of her, if she gets fed ...the list goes on. Next Friday Sam is moving out and moving into an apartment with three of her friends. One of the girls has a baby and one on the way. I am already worried.  I always thought the older the kids got, the easier it would get. How wrong I was. I wish we could go back to the days of playing barbies and coloring.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Santa brought you everything you wanted!
