My Christmas, and Yours
Saturday, December 26, 2015
DH's daughter invited us over for Christmas dinner today. It was snowing when we left the house but the roads were clear and we had a safe trip there and back.
She really put out a spread! I did good in my portion sizes (NO desserts!) so I shouldn't go over my calorie range today. (It's hard with home cooked meals at someones house because you're never really sure on the calories.)
But I still feel like a blimp
We had quite a bit of discussion with both daughter and her husband, discussing how things are going with the grandson who is now living at their home.
DH's oldest daughter was murdered 8 weeks ago, leaving behind a 13 year old son who is ADHD, Ashbergers/ borderline Autistic, etc. He was with a temp foster family for the first few weeks, and when that didn't work out, the younger daughter said they would take him. It's a HUGE step for a couple who decided early-on that they did not want children.
After spending the day with them, it is my honest opinion that he needs to professional help and I think they may be coming around to the same conclusion.
I really wish I had a magic wand to make things all better, but some things are out of our control. Anyway, that was a big shadow over an otherwise beautiful day.
So, how was your Christmas???? I really want to know.
