    :We can't afford Christmas gifts! :sad1: I don't want to ear what everyone else is doing for Christmas. I don't want to hear how DH's boss just got to go to Disneyland while we are struggling to pay bills and groceries! :furious: I am thankful that we have grandparents who love to buy our kids toys. I am just praying the toys the boys want are in stock right before Christmas. :sad2:

    No rants here. DH is a huge help with the decorating, purchasing, shipping and cleaning.


    Question - Thise who hate the LEDs. What brand and style did you buy? White or colored? We love the ceramic C9s andthe faceted LEDs. The cheap LEDs withthe bulb exposed are not nice to look at.

    My only rant is that I wish my mother could be here for Christmas. I got through Thanksgiving without her (she just passed this October) but it was beyond hard. I have good days, I have bad days, and I have days where I can't stop sobbing. I'm really just hoping that I can make it though Christmas morning and evening without breaking down infront of everyone.

    my baah humbug rant is writing out Christmas cards for people we don' t see or communicate with all year round-why?!

    on a deeper level, there was a major fallout in our family in September, still on going, and I' m kind of dreading Christmas eve,Christmas day and boxing day.

    as pp pointed out, life is short and precious- if only others would figure that out.:)

    Rant:

    Keep the Ex's away from the family Christmas if some of the family members don't get along with the Ex. It's a family holiday - the family should be comfortable.

    The first Ex wasn't invited... the second shouldn't be either. And the day when there is a third, I'll expect the same!

    My rant is people have over commercialized Christmas. It's not about presents and decorations it's about Jesus coming to earth and being born as a man. Rant over!

    We don't get a Christmas bonus, we don't get a Christmas party, we have to work Christmas Eve and they DO NOT heat our building, you should see me sitting at my desk with a sweatshirt, scarf, hood up, gloves and a blanket over my legs with my space heater on high under my desk. Tomorrow I need to bring a beanie, it's about 20 degrees in here!!

    DBF doesn't shop for anyone but me either, I bought his parents gifts and I'll be looking at Amazon for his sister and her kids, I also buy for everyone in my family. Drives me nuts, I even buy my own stocking stuffers, otherwise I have none. One year I didn't get myself anything and only had a candy bar and had to explain to the kids (who still believed) why Santa only gave me 1 candy bar. :rolleyes: Oh, and I have DD12's 13th birthday Saturday and DBF's birthday a couple weeks after Christmas, and let me tell you, if we don't do something or give him gifts he flips out. lol

    Omg the exact same thing happened to me the day after I decorated the entire tree (literally it took me the whole day). I debated just leaving it but it really did not look festive, my poor tree looked tired and beaten. Took me another hour or so to remove decorations to get to the string of lights which was connected to more lights etc. ugh! Hate those middle strings lol. Happy holidays everyone!

    The lights must have decided to stay on my good side, because when I went to show my DD the offending lights, they were miraculously lit.

    This is what happened when I went to put up the tree---you know, the tree I swore I wasn't going to put up since DH is having surgery tomorrow and won't be able to lift anything over 15 lbs. for 6-8- weeks so I'll be putting all the decorations away. Anyhow, I played with it and played with it and finally just took it as a sign from God that it was ok not to have a tree;) Not so fast though--DH decides that we really need a new tree (seriously!!!????) so goes out and buys another prelit one. Well, at least it worked. So now I'm still stuck having to take down the tree and stash it (along with all the other stuff DH keeps dragging out of storage) by myself. Merry Christmas to me.:rolleyes1
