This will be my first Christmas that I won't be visiting family. After the fiasco that was Thanksgiving, not one person has called me, sent me an email, or a text message saying anything about it. I don't want to go sit in my aunts house and fake it just to exchange presents and gobble down some food. People need to realize they can't say the shit they did one minute, then act like everything is okay the next day, because it's not. The words that were exchanged hurt me. The words that weren't exchanged hurt me even more.
We'll be waking up at my mother's while A opens up her gifts from Santa. I am due at 10 am with A to my dad's house. I'll take her over there for her three hour visit before returning back to my mom's house. My mom will be taking the kidlet to my aunt's house, because she's oblivious to the hate for now. I'm not sure what NYEBoy and I will do. I might go visit a friend, or perhaps do some much needed studying.
It'll be different, for sure, but one of these years I'll get my ideal Christmas' back. I'll wake up with my kids on Christmas morning and take them to their grandma's house, where they won't have to worry about being yelled at or listen to their aunt talk shit about their mother.
What do you do for Christmas? Are you dealing with a dysfunctional family or have you cut ties as well? Or better yet, do you have that perfect Christmas? Tell me about it.
