Christmas Post

I am directing you over to Lily's blog to read about our Christmas day.

We had a good day. After reading your comments I let Kenny go snowboarding Christmas day without a second thought. He agreed to meet us at grandma's house later that evening, which he did.


Now to get through New Year's Eve!

  1. I just read your previous post and this one. I'm glad things worked out and that you were both able to compromise. This way, both parties got what they want and everyone was treated as an adult.

    As you know, last Christmas was terrible for me. I was so tired and depressed. I just wanted to sleep and have some quiet time. But my family was being loud and expecting me to enjoy things as much as they did. When my mom started berating me in front of everyone and blaming me for ruining Christmas, it pushed me into an episode so bad that I was hospitalized for almost a month.

    This year the family allowed me time for extra sleep and made sure things were reasonably quiet and orderly. In return, I made an extra effort to participate and show my gratitude for the allowances they made. We had the best Christmas ever and my relationship with my mom is much improved.

    Never underestimate the power of loving and reasonable compromise. It can cure many ills and reinforce our position as responsible adults.

I really enjoy comments and hearing from new people but if you are here to complain or challenge my personal thoughts and feelings go elsewhere. How is that for blunt!
