This December

So, I'm trying to figure out what to do for the holidays this December. The reason it's kind of a big deal is two fold: 1) I will have turned 40 on the 5th of the month and will probably still be crying like a baby, and 2) since Mike and I are getting a divorce, I don't think we should be spending it together.

In April, I bought a one-bedroom condo in midtown Atlanta so it's not like I have tons of space to invite friends and family over. I'm somewhat removed from my immediate family for various reasons, some of which are covered in earlier entries in this blog. So, I've been thinking about alternative ways to spend the holidays. Hmmmm.......

I don't have a lot of money and I don't want to be a burden on anyone. So, that's something I've been thinking about lately.

Didn't you know that you are spending it with us, whether we stay in Atlanta or go up to Delaware???

It'll be a whole month-long birthday celebration with Christmas/New Year's thrown in!

I am expecting imposition. You are our adopted Sister. I have 3 bedrooms and now that my Office is straight, I have a mattress for there too.
We can take the Ferry over to Cape May for a day, visit my neighborhood theater, www.theclaytontheatre, and just hang out and play games. Outlet shopping, no tax, walk on the Boardwalk. C'mon down to Lower Slower DE.

Both of you are so nice. Thank you so much for making me feel welcomed. So thoughtful! (smiley face with a happy/sad tear)
