Once again, it’s Thursday and I’m loving the fact that this week flew right by….. But I guess during this time of year, the days do just fly by and before I know it will be Christmas!!! Speaking of Christmas, this is “one of those Christmas’s”; and by that I mean, the boys will be with there dad on Christmas this year…. Boo!!! I.hate.it. It’s not supposed to be this way!! I know, I know, I’m supposed to be “fair”; it’s “according to the divorce docs”…..but WTF was I thinking when I agreed to let my boys go away every other Christmas…?? It’s just not the same waking up on Christmas morning to only Angie at the side of my bed, begging me to wake up and see what Santa brought (because they all know they are NOT allowed to go through Santa’s presents without me there to see the excitement). It’s not the same making our Christmas breakfast with 4 eggs instead of the whole dozen, and 6 pieces of bacon instead of the whole package…. We will be celebrating our (meaning with the boys) Christmas on Christmas Eve this year. We will wake up on Christmas Eve and pretend it’s Christmas morning and I will try to maintain all of our little traditions that we usually do on Christmas morning!! And then after we do our gifts and breakfast and play time, I will take them on “that drive” to their dad’s house and say goodbye for 10 days….oh and yes, I will cry the whole way home!!!
WOW—that felt good to get that off my chest… I’ve been wanting to whine and b*@tch about it for a while now!! Thanks for listening!! And that works out perfect for today’s Writing Assignment at MamaKat’s!! She asks “Who makes the best listener and why?”
My immediate answer would be my mom of course. She was the best listener known to man-- I could tell her anything, anytime!! Unfortunately, since she passed away, I can only talk to her "spirit"; and while I do "do" that, it's just not the same!! The next answer would be that all of you are my best listeners, and let me tell you why!! I can come here and talk to you at anytime of the day, whether it be early in the morning or after a late, late night. I can tell you anything...whatever is on my chest. I can vent and complain when I'm angry; I can smile and laugh and tell you the funny stories; I can gloat and brag and tell you how proud I am of my family; I can cry when I'm sad or hurting; I can unload my burdens by just writing it out.....most of all, I can come here and just-be-me!!! And the best thing is, I can do all of this without interuption!! :) You listen but you don't talk back. You let me spill my guts at 100 miles/minute and don't cut in and make me stop for a break. And then, when you know I need it, you offer your words---words of support or laughter or encouragement!!
