As a divorcee I spent a good portion of today alone. I got chinese and kicked back and watched a Firefly marathon.
I have had many concerned friends checking up on me, so I wasn't really alone. You know who you are
But I have been celebrating xmas for a week now, going to a play, party at work, seeing a friend in a band play at church last night, that I don't
mind having some time off.
You feel pressured on certain holidays to have to do something. That it doesn't have meaning if you don't follow certain customs.
But its just a designated holiday. and it doesn't make you a lesser person if you are not out galloping around.
Fact is, make of it what you will.
The best xmas I ever had was when I was married, we couldn't go home, so we rented a cabin for the night and went skiing. No commitments, no
My dad said the best xmas he ever had was when he was alone. lol
So for those who are having a rough year, I feel for you. and I hope it gets better.
