    I really appreciate this post. I used to really enjoy Christmas when it was just me. I set the day aside to do fun things, see friends, and be silly. When I got married and aquired a stepson, it changed pretty quickly. The whole thing is so complicated now. Coordinating different families, and agreeing on gifts, and scheduling – good grief!

    Also, this made me smile: “Seven years. I’ve kept that kid alive for seven years….” 🙂 It’s amazing and a bit of a gobsmack, isn’t it? I feel the same way about my stepson. He was about 2 when he and I met. He’s 14, now, and just typing that is a trip.

    Hope you have a great New Years!
