I've been hold off on the venting, but I just can't resist...so here goes. DD12 has a very sweet friend that we just love and she was invited to spend the night a couple of nights ago.

So, the friend came over when I wasn't home. I get home and the friend is SICK. Hacking, coughing, sneezing sick. Since the daughter was away, her mom and step dad went to visit his dad in the hospital in OKC and wouldn't be back until the next day.

Sooo....you guessed it, now DD is sick and I'm starting to cough. Just lovely, my parents are coming in for Christmas later today and the house is a mess. Not to mention, my parents are crazy about illness. They might just turn around and drive back to Florida when they find out we are sick here!

I'm in the sick boat too. Last night I couldn't sleep because my throat her so bad and I had a really bad nasal drip. Now I woke up and when I breathe my chest hurts SO bad, if I breathe in through my mouth it starts a hack attack.

I've had to spend Christmas in an ER before and I'm not doing it again! I have asthma so when I get bad colds I usually end up having to go to the ER because I can't breathe. Sometimes I get admitted, if its not too bad I just get a few nebulizer (sp) treatments and get to go home.

I'm just praying this doesn't get that bad.

My vent is I am not done shopping, probably only half way done. My DH is working today so I have to take my kids to a Christmas party they were invited to, and then I promised them we decorate cookies tonight. I will be out of the door first thing tomorrow to hopefully get everything purchased.

Then there is the wrapping.

Well, this Christmas officially has become the worst ever on record. Mom is in the hospital and they won't release her until at least Monday. Her platelets and white counts are low and so she is susceptible to infection and bleeding. Plus, low platelets means she can't take her blood thinners that she went on after having blood clots in her lungs in October.

She and I both needed a break and now... nothing. No family, no fun, no relaxation. Just more of the same. I am honestly to a point that I don't know what to do. I am so tired...

My lovely MIL who is angry with me and my husband, didn't even send her grandchildren a card for Christmas. Spiteful much? My youngest is 11 and LOVES his grandma. I have never, ever tried to change his view of her. I have always made my kids send thank yous for gifts in the past. It started with their birthdays this year. Usually she would send 50 dollars. This year it was 10. No big deal, times are tough, although for her I doubt it. They still sent very sweet thank you cards. This year, nothing.

You are nicer than me. I would have called the parents and told them they needed to come and get their sick daughter right away. While waiting I would have put her in a room by herself than thoroughly cleaned the room when she was gone. That would make me soooo mad. Next time she would not be coming over until I was home.

I know that as a hostess I shouldn't expect anything, that I should just host, but it would really be nice if someone would, like, put a glass in the dishwasher once in a while. Let alone pick up the tab for a grocery run.

Everyone is at least 33 years old, btw. Old enough to know better.
My Mom passed away 20 years ago, so this is me. Except I only get them all for the day, and have been feeling pretty pissy about it. (Janepod, you are a saint, or maybe a martyr). Really tried to get out of it this year, but one brother talked me into it. I had cancer this year, isn't that a good excuse?

Oh and sorry you don't have a break, but it is called your job. Most people don't get 2 weeks either, but these are kids and they aren't employed in a full time job and getting paid. Christmas break should be left alone.

ETA, None of my kids or my friends with kids have EVER complained about them being bored. They somehow find something to do.
I agree. Teachers that give assignments over holidays need to get a life or have kids themselves. Infuriating.

But when student projects, not a few worksheets but full-blown research projects, are distributed the last day before break and are due the day kids return, there's no budgeting time. This project is akin to a boss dropping a major project on your desk at 4:30 pm the day before you leave for vacation. I think most people have a name for that type of boss: Scrooge.

I just have no Christmas holiday anything spirit this year. Just not in the mood. Can't get it together. Bought cookies, didn't bake anything. Bought food for the potlucks. Skipping the parties.
Bought lots of gift cards (sick of seeing unopened gifts from last year). Just dreading everything about the season other then the few hours of my kids opening presents from santa.
Humbug.
(more excited about wdw trip in 21 days!)

I guess mine is minor compared to most, but I am rather peeved by it.

I just received a card from one of my cousins. As you can see in my sig, I was married last year. I took my DH's name, as I'd kept my ex-husband's name and was MORE than happy to be rid of it. I sent this cousin a wedding invitation, so she knows I'm married ; she's on FB, so she knows my name and Lord knows I've posted about my DH enough, so she knows his name as well...

But the card is addressed to me. Only me. In my ex-husband's name

I understand, it's annoying when people don't pay attention or are oblivious. My Christmas present from the SIL who doesn't like me is addressed to Mrs. John Doe. We're not supposed to exchange gifts at all, but she's always got to have the last word.
