We made a nice Christmas dinner and the kids came over- DS22, GF23, and DGD1 came over and DD18 was there and our DLOL neighbor who doesn't have any family around, and DH & me. It was the best. DGD sat right at the table in her little booster seat, and DS was just so thrilled that she's big enough to just sit at the table with everyone and be a full-on part of everything. It was just a really good time.

My mil never got me Blue Apron, but she did send me over 30 cookbooks because she said I can't cook. Lovely woman. The queen of passive aggressiveness.

I don't like Christmas at all. It's too much damn work. I'd rather do just about anything else than 'celebrate' Christmas.

Just had Christmas with family including my nieces and nephews and omg they are all such cool, accomplished, nice people. The baby of the family is 17 and got into her first choice college, my one niece and her husband are buying their own vet practice, the others have great jobs, planning families, so proud of them and happy they're making great futures. My sisters and I lost our Mom and it really threw some challenges our way but I am so happy this generation never feels that loss and is doing great.

Right?? What is it with kids and how rude they are with their technology these days? We were at my aunt's for Christmas Eve dinner and my nieces and nephew were all parked on the couch, glued to their phone/tablets. I suggested that they take a break and enjoy "family time" and that the games could be paused for later. They got all snotty with me and got mad at my aunt for taking the tablets/phones away while we ate. My sister lets them watch as much TV/play on the computers/phones as much as they want and it shows.

Remember SS who created havoc at Thanksgiving when he set up his huge TV that he'd just bought in our office? Well he really screwed us now. DS17 LOVES hot sauce. DH was working out of state all week and went to a Taqueria that was featured on Guy Fieri's show. DH went and bought a huge, ornate bottle, went back to the place and had them fill it with their "famous" hot sauce. (DH gave them a $10 tip as they don't usually do that.) It's Christmas Eve at 3:30pm and he just got home. We went to the place's website to print out the label for the sauce and the pic of the owner with Guy, to put on the bottle. Except we can't. When SS put his TV up, he took everything off the desk, including my printer - and somehow managed to take the printer cable with him. None of the neighbors are home (we only have 3) and we live in the sticks, so a trip to Staples at this time is out of the question. FML

Every year at holiday time I congratulate myself on divorcing my stepkids' dad. He thought they were wonderful and could do no wrong but they made my holidays miserable and exhausting. Just overentitled, lying, manipulating, lazy but charming adults. No more being a slave to that dysfunctional bunch but I have sympathy for all of you who are still going through that.

In response to a confession. No worries...they'll never step foot in our place again. In fact, I doubt they'll visit us when we're back home. They knew how we felt when they left....and I blame the parents more than their bratty kids.

In response to a confession. I hope my son stays single. Being a MIL must suck.
