Just to be a little bit different, with all the Merry Christmases going around.

Today has certainly been interesting. We found out that, thanks to listening to a talk on step-families, Mom has finally realized that the children are affected by divorce as well as the ex-spouses. This is a good thing, but I still couldn't help myself from muttering, "About time."

We went to Mom's place for Christmas Eve stuff, and it all went really well. We watched Muppet Christmas Carol, and everyone got along. Then Steve wanted to read the Christmas story out of Luke, which is all well and good, but I really could have done without his speech about how we should be together as one for Christmas. I can do my best to get along with him, but I still don't like him.

And now I feel like I'm being grinchy with all my whining, so I'll stop. It really was a good evening, and we all got along much better than we did on Thursday. And Muppet Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas movie of all time. We're going to watch it again tomorrow so Steve's kids can see it. And we got to see the Fright Before Christmas again, and that's always a good thing.

Tonight I'm thankful for Muppet Christmas Carol, new pajamas, eyeglasses, hair clips, and Christmas lights.
