I just wasn't in a "Christmas mood" this year. It didn't feel like Christmas at all, we are having a lot of money problems (the problem is we don't have any), it seemed like nothing was going to go right. I was really just bummed out. As the days got closer, things got worse....My aunt's dog got run over by a car, my husbands aunt died, my step-son's grandfather passed away...NOT a very good week. We ended up having to have Christmas on Sunday because we have to share the kids with the ex's. So, I ended up spending all day Christmas alone with my man, arguing. YEAH. That was NOT so much fun. No kids, no toys, no presents and no food. I really hope next year is better. I hope your Christmas was a LOT better than mine. Care to share any stories?

Oh my, sorry it was so bad. It is always rough when events happen, and things just are not going well. I hope you have a better New year and things get better for you. Our Christmas went fine, nothing spectacular, but went ok. We did help a family, a friend of ours, that we found out was in a mess. We filled their kitchen with food for Christmas. We also bought them a gas card. I wish we could have done more, but finances just did not make it possible.

My Christmas was normal, no anger, no extreme happiness either. Just spend the day with my family. And that's usually more than enough isn't it. :) I'm sorry to hear about all the deaths in your family. Hope you're doing ok.

Don't feel bad, you aren't alone in this. I have kept my true feelings inside because I didn't want to bring anyone else down. I had no money to buy anyone anything at all because of the debt I'm in. My husband has been in jail since October for driving without his license and he was in there for Christmas. All I wanted for Christmas was for him to come home but it didn't happen. They did let some people out early but not my husband. He got sentenced to 90 days because he got caught driving without his license. Yeah I know it is breaking the law but it's not like he killed anyone, or beat anyone up or anything major like that. He won't be home until January 17th, it was supposed to be January 20th but they are letting him out 3 days early. Wow a whole 3 days early. I stayed at my mom and dads for Christmas and ate dinner with them. I did get a couple of presents, a new hat and scarf from my aunt and a nice warm robe from my mother. I'm grateful to them for thinking of me but I truly didn't want anyone buying me anything because I would rather give than receive. The only thing I wanted was for my husband to come home and I didn't get that. I did get to talk to him on Christmas Eve at my moms, which I owe her a ton of money for the calls now because I can't accept collect calls on our phone. I am also glad that it is over but I have tried to stay positive, especially with my friends online so not to bring them down. I told everyone Merry Christmas even if I had to force it out. And when people asked me if I was ready for Christmas I just said yeah and that was it. I wasn't going to go into the whole story about how I wasn't having a Christmas. So sorry yours was bad also. Hopefully next year will be better for all of us. :)

I'm so sorry that your Christmas wasn't the best. Guess we have to look at it like 'it could of been worse'. I know there are lots of other people out there that had it a lot worse than we did, but that doesn't make ours better. I don't know what the heck was wrong with me this year. I just wasn't in the mood. I am happy and thankful that I had all my children with me a couple days before and I was able to get them something, not a lot, but something. I guess it wasn't so bad. Guess we just have to count our blessings and quit dwelling on the negatives. That's easier said than done though.... Happy New Year!

Sorry to hear that you had such a rough christmas. Dont feel too bad mine wasnt much better. It was the first year my family wasnt together so it was very crappy. My husband and i had an arguement too which made it even worse.
