I know that Jesus wasn't born in December, and that Christmas covers a pagan holiday...but Christmas to me is still a time to get together with friends and family and have a good time. I think Christmas is overly commercialized...but if it puts people in a good mood, hey, whatever. I'm living on my friend's couch with my son, but counting my blessings. I have good friends, supportive family, and my beautiful son. My job doesn't pay well, and I still have no child support...but I was able to buy Adi a gift. I gave my friends some little things, and sent out Christmas cards. They know I would do more if I could afford to...but I can't.
Our first court date is January 3rd. They are also doing an Ex Parte Order for Emergency Support. I hope it works. They subpoenaed (sp?) his work for his payroll information, so hopefully that means something will happen soon.
I just had to put front brakes on my car. The rear ones need to be done, too, but the front ones were grinding. And being that my ex had to buy a BMW 745Li, it's almost $500. I had been saving for an apartment, and I had $300 saved up. So much for moving out soon. My friend has a mechanic that is working with me on paying him. I paid the $300, and will pay the rest when I get paid.
I hate being broke, but I would take this any day over what we had to live with when we were with my ex...Adi is the happiest little clam ever. He's growing like crazy, and he loves to dance and sing. He needs a haircut, but I haven't gotten around to that yet. I have the clippers to do it myself...
So, in conclusion, I think that Christmas is just a time to feel blessed for what you have. I believe that it is a time for family and friends to get together and have a good time! Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
