where is christmas this year?

Well when we fall down it's nice to know we have friends and family to help pick you up. Chad's mom died almost 3 weeks ago. After being out of work for a week for surgery that has set us back in our bills big time. Well that doesn't leave much room for christmas. Aaron isn't getting a single new thing from us. Its all second hand stuff. I know he won't know the difference but I do. I am not right now what I am going to get anyone else. It is killing me to get closer and closer to christmas knowing I don't have any gifts for anyone. I haven't been able to go to any christmas parties because they have been catered and cost money. I hate being depressed this time of year. At least things should start looking up at work. I have 2 people shadowing me on different days next week. I am praying they both work out but atleast one of them. I am really getting run down at work too. Ok done venting for now thanks for listening.

I so understand you on this one, unfortunately. We are having to move the week after Christmas due to foreclosure so there is NO money for Christmas this year. It is hard to get in the mood when you aren't shopping and baking and decorating. My kiddos will be getting very little and just like your little guy, my Aiden will be getting toys that are up in the rafters from his older sister. He will never know, but I know and that is hard. We are not buying for anyone but our two older kids, no siblings, parents, not each other, NO ONE. Just can't! I really pray that things start calming down at work for you soon, and that things will be better in 2009. Hold your head up and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
