So the Xmas party is coming up and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'll be cooking, and I'll be making mulled wine, eggnog and maybe some Cider. Mmmmmm.... I really can't wait! It's going to be a fantastic time. White Elephant, food, fun, music.... the works. And I will be surrounded by my family and the most amazing friends. Merriest Christmas ever.
Jeff and I have been arguing lately. Mainly about the kids and their behavior. This has been a rough month, but we're definitely getting through it. He's being very sweet at the moment and I'm learning to not be mad for over a day. It's silly. We have a life together. A really really grand life together. Yes! Living in this duplex near the train tracks sucks, Yes! his ex wife is fake and manipulative and the worst to deal with, Yes! we never have enough money, but we have so much love between us, and, like I said before, the greatest group of friends. It's an amazing support system.
Money isn't everything. Our life together is held together by all the suffering we've felt together, and the lower we fall, the harder we work to helping eachother back up the mountain. The kids don't always have the best attitudes, but we share them with another family and it gets difficult for them. However, the kids are beautiful, happy and healthy and we just have to be stronger for them. It's really difficult. I can do it with Jeff, though. I woke up today feeling so bright and happy. It's going to be a really wonderful day.
It's going to be the merriest Christmas.
