Anyone else feel fine with their speration/divorce but still feel something is missing this holiday? My mother was mad at me tonight for not offering to make Xmas dinner and all but I just want the day with my kids and just kinda try to relax. She always made Xmas dinner and since just starting to work this past week, feeling a little lonely this first Xmas alone, etc. I surely just didn't feel up to it this year. One would think she would keep the tradition we always had of going to her house even just for the kids sake because so much has already recently changed for them! I hope everyone on here has the best Xmas they can given our circumstances.
Re: Strange ChiefWiggum: Just want to let you know you're not the only one feeling lonely right now. Hope you have a great time with the kids and the presents tomorrow morning!
Re: Strange 4sarah: I agree it does feel different this year! Our traditions now become just my traditions I think I'll start some new one's this year. They opened a new outdoor ice rink just up the street and for my daughter I found little ice skates that have two blades so they don't fall as easy and were going to go there after presents just the two of us. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas with your children tommorow and I wish I got to keep mine all day!!
Re: Strange hurtnlost: I really feel for you too. This is about 2 weeks away from the finalization of our divorce and we still live together so this X-mas for me as been one of knowing it is the last one together. However, this morning I was sitting there and watching everything and reflecting b/c I have started to realize that him leaving is for the best and even though my kids and I will hurt things will get better. I feel lonely though and he is still around so I can imagine how you feel, especially after 17 years. The best thing to do is just be a family with your kids and make the best of it and know you are not alone. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
Re: Strange Zipsfb: It is weird being alone.
