      Sue is right Jen. My mother was'nt the greatest at showing love either, or my father. But I did things differently with my own kids, and then started treating my parents differently too. It was really awkward, at first, but as time went on, a kiss good bye and an I love you as I was leaving became normal.

      I believe it was the way they were raised that caused the coldness. I wish things could have been different when we were kids, but I think they did the best they could do. And maybe your mom did too.

        Daughter, small son and Indian neighbor over for christmas eve dinner, pork ribs, lamb ribs with potatos, sauerkraut, swedish turnip pure and cloudberry cream for dessert. Krumkake and coffee when we opened presents. We had a nice time.
        I was not invited any place for the Christmas breakfast, but got the visit in the evening and he is still here and we eat and drink and enjoy and have plans to do that untill Christmas and New Year are finished.

          Hah ... dresser is mine yay!

          Dad said John has to ask my sister first about the table set (it belonged to our mother's family and he hated our mother).

          He won't ask. I said I would. He said no it's his until a will says it isn't.

          I just said I don't want to be like 'other families' and fight over material shit.

          This is why I like being on my own, lol.

          Oops .. maybe not. He's pissed that I told our other brother.

          WHY OH WHY DO PEOPLE USE LEVERAGE AGAINST EACH OTHER? Material shit means nothing. Kumbaya Jenn kum-effing-baya! Breathe! 10-9-8 ...

            Christmas day was wonderful. Went to girlfriend's brother's house where the whole family came in from different directions. Everybody was very nice and the house was so festive with lots of red and, holiday dishes set on the table. The nephews were there and even one 4 year old little one who looks like he's going to be very tall.

            I had some wheelchair worries but everything worked out okay. The food was great with prime rib that was delicious, the best I've had. There was smoked turkey, vegetables, including brussel sprouts that were so tasty they were fought over. It was a wonderful night.

            The drive over was scary as heck with rain coming down so heavy we couldn't see the lane lines on the road or hardly the road itself. We got a little lost after getting off the freeway but the GPS I bought just for the trip got us the rest of the way though, funnily we stopped in front of the wrong house. I was confused because a group email had been sent out to leave the driveway open for us so I could get in but it was packed with minivans. Because it wasn't her brother's house. Okay, we moved down a little and found it.

            I did have one odd moment I hadn't figured on - leaving shoes at the door. Everyone was doing it and I could see the pile but what was I supposed to do? Taking my shoes off wouldn't have made a difference and my tires were going to bring in the outside dirt anyway. Was more an issue in my head, nobody said anything. Very nice Christmas. Oh there was one tradition in her family that was new to me and I have to admit, I think it might be the way to go - they exchange presents but don't open them in front of each other. On the drive home I asked about that and she explained it was to prevent anyone from feeling too obligated it they received an especially generous gift. I thought it also keeps you from have to pretend you like something you really really don't.

            A real good Christmas :-)

              My Christmas was awesome!!! My husband and I spent it at my mom's house. There were many best parts to that. 1) We had a great Christmas Eve dinner, and Christmas Day brunch.

              2) My husband's sister came up to my mom's house for Christmas Day, and my husband and I were so excited to see her since she works as a manager for one of the major cell phone companies at one of their stores in downtown Portland. She's my favorite, and only sister-in-law in the whole world, and I just love her so much. We had a lot of fun visiting with each other.

              3) I only wanted one thing for Christmas this year, and I got it. It's my favorite Christmas present of all, and I'm having lots of fun with it.

                Christ! I'm on the edge of my seat wanting to know what it is; you could have told us.

                    It's either that cushion you went crazy for, or it's a Lexington
                    Steele dildo.

                    But like everyone else, I'm at the edge of my chair in deep
                    anticipation over what it could be.

                      Maybe a combo of the two. Would keep you from falling out of your chair.
