oldest daughter and husband dissed Christmas and went Out Of Town, leaving younger daughter and husband to make Christmas for mom who was Upset. day was really quite pleasant, if quiet.
now, after official holidays, uncle has come to visit, mom's sister is back in town, and so are daughter and son-in-law. tomorrow night we all will gather for food (NO presents!) and conversation and the very best of Christmas desserts with none of the baggage of The Day.
guess mom got Christmas Dinner after all--and the menu didn't even have to be What We Always Have. there is a lesson in all this somewhere, if i am clever enough to find it!
