Christmas was good

Well aohell will not let me edit the pictures! I swear sometimes I hate aol.

Christmas was so nice. I was so happy to have everyone here. I know everyone had a good day.

Now what would Christmas be without a little drama. Two of the marines did have words and one walked out before eating Christmas dinner. Some how I just could not be bothered to get involved. I was just going to concentrate on the people that were there.

I had an awesome day. I got a lot of the things that I had been wanting. Two of the marines actually searched antique stores for a tea cup and saucer for me. I was so thrilled.

Now it is back to reality. Rusty and I have decided not to say anything until after we go back to court.

However I am making plans. We will have to find a place to live for a few weeks until the house we want to rent comes available.

So I will need to go find a storage unit, and rent a u haul. I know someone that has a motor home, so I am going to ask them if we can rent it for a few weeks. There is a camp ground right across from the high school, so that will be easy for the girls. I will just have to drive Ryan to school.

In the back of my mind I just can't believe this is happening to us. Even after we leave this money pit, we are still going to be paying for it for several more years. All I can say is, we hit a learning curve and we are going to make the best out of it.

I guess I could choose to sit here and pout and lay blame, but that will get me no where. Instead I choose to move on and be the soft place for my husband land. I choose to be here for my children and for my husband. I choose to make the best out of a bad situation.

Amber is feeling a little bit better. I have started feeding her protein shakes and that is helping to give her some energy. I am going to take Amber to the doctor to tomorrow just to make sure that everything is o.k. before she gets up in the air and her ear drums burst.

Well, I am sure there is something that I need to be doing, so I better get to doing it.

I think the "mess" in the photos is a beautiful thing! I think the same about your wonderful attitude! Some people would have let what's going on ruin their Christmas, but not you! You know all about what's really important in life. I know good things are coming for you. Hugs, Martha

Your girls look just like Sandra Bullock!  Sounds like a good day!  Except the arguement.
I wish you were not losing your home.  But at least you know what not to do next time!  Hugs,

It looks like you had a wonderful day! I love the way you decorated the fireplace with all of the Xmas stuff animals and toys. That is sooooo cute! I'm gonna do that next year!
I know that what you are going through is one of the hardest things ever. But, you'll be ok. But, it's gonna be rough.
If you live in the motorhome, I hope you can still access your journal!! If not, I understand, but I'd miss ya!

I'm glad Christmas was good.  Your family is strong and you are going to be alright but GOD how hard this is for everyone.  I won't stop thinking about you.  I went through my own hard past and talk about the PRICE of a learning curve!  GF, we could talk.

I hope Amber is feeling much better and that her trip goes well.  And I hope you guys are getting settled in somewhere.  Please take care and don't let stress get you down.  You seem to be keeping a clear head.
