I'm actually enjoying the simplicity of Christmas this year. I did live in a beautiful house... but it was cold and lonely and a lot of work to take care of. My stbx has a huge family... but they keep eachother at arm's length mostly and really aren't very close. This morning I browsed for a gift for a close friend, picked up a few groceries and I had a relaxig time. I watched other people running around frantically and looking stressed and I was glad that I'm not doing that this year. It's a beautiful day outside and I'm meeting a friend for a walk in the park. Despite all the sadness and anger I'm working through, I feel good that I have more friends than I ever knew I had. That's the best Christmas gift I've had in years. (Please remind me I said all this if I get pitiful again in a few days.)
