So far my holiday is starting off great. I gave up on dealing with my family. Screw em. I'm happily home and not chasing my tail off. Christmas Day will be spent with the mother in law's family. It's once a year that I have to do this. It's at the in law's house so at least I'll feel a bit at home. This is the first year ever for this happening and my MIL is freaking the fuck out.
Then Sunday I will getting together with the immediate inlaws to have our family Christmas. I usually make out awesome here. Well, at least for MIL and FIL. My one SIL is just a bitch and really screwed me hard last year. She's just nuts. Thanksgiving usually is a good temperature gauge of how Christmas is going to go. She behaved then so maybe we'll be ok.
I did piss my mother off with deciding to ok the inlaw Christmas for Sunday instead of going to my dad's side of the family. Oh well. She's just struggling this holiday since we aren't all together. Usually we aren't but this year she's just being a freak show. She thinks her grandsons are living such a horrible life because their parents are divorced. She just doesn't get it that they are so much better off with having 2 parents who aren't fighting in the house and causing chaos.
Last night we did a little Christmas shin dig with our neighbors/best friends. We had the high quality traditional Jimmy Johns for dinner. It was awesome! Then it was the gift exchange. My gift got backordered from them but I got the hint of what it was by getting a CO2 refill for it. It is an awesome wine opener that you stab the needle through the cork and shoot CO2 into the bottle and it pops the cork out. She has one and I love it. Now I have one of my own!
After we opened our presents, they opened theirs to each other. It was fun. Then it was time that hubby gave me part of mine. It was a big box covered with a blanket. That little shit got me a 46" internet tv. It took my breath away literally. That little shit got the small tv as a cover up for the big one. I did see the clues but didn't want to get my hopes up. The tv was stashed at their house so I wouldn't see it. After we got home he took me out to the garage. I was banned from there since Monday. He decided that he's going make a homemade entertainment center. I'll have to take pictures of it when it is done and installed. It is looking really nice. He's been working on it all day. When I say all day, I mean all day. He went out to the garage before 8 and has been out there since. Hopefully soon he'll be in so we can make our super fancy Christmas dinner of steak and taters.
Once again, I hope that you all have a great holiday and drink a lot for me!
