    Went to court for divorce dec 1st and I am glad it is over. Have been so stressed this year that I am in a state of just here.

    One son in the navy going to his dad's this year for christmas. other son and his wife spending it with her family. 2 teen daughters going to their dad's and boy friends this year. I planned nothing gave them all money for x-mas so they could do as they needed.

    I just don't want to celebrate or do anything so told Kids to make plans with other families. I feel good knowing they have things to do but I just want to be alone and in peace and quiet.

    My mom is in texas for the winter months and my siblings have other plans so I don't have to worry about offending them.

    Any one else feel this way or am I just facing symptoms that are rare this year. Maybe next year I will want to do something but not this year.I am not sad about it or feeling left out I just don't want to participate in anything.

    You're not alone this year!!

    We usually have a big family get-together, but it's just not the same this year.

    Did most of the shopping online as I don't do crowds, especially this time of year!! We didn't even put up a tree this year. Everybody except for 2 will be here tomorrow, but it's just not festive as it usually is.

    Best thing about it is don't have to go back to work until a week from Tuesday, and I sure can appreciate what you mean by "peace and quiet"!!!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    just not into it or mainly UP to it. every task looms so large. i loved reading about person who spent four hours wrapping presents and it totally did her in (although i am sorry- i do relate totally). i also was wrapping some things and it seemed like climbing Everest. now a couple of people are coming over for Christmas Eve crab dinner. everything is pre-cooked, really. but i so didn't want to do any work in the kitchen; not before, not during, and not after. i just want peace and quiet. tomorrow i'm going to my son's and wife's home, and they know how i feel at times so i can just curl up, lie down, and let people wait on me! at least those are the only terms i think i can go on. and my other son can drive us.

    i used to love Christmas big time, but when you ache and feel terrible, what's the point. there is no point in killing yourself over it. but i do so grieve for the time i had more energy and life force.

    best wishes to all- let's take good care of ourselves and not feel guilty about it!! Sascha
