I agree with you Luise.Parents Do matter.If the family appreciate you then spoil yourselves.

Dear Bamboo.I would keep my mouth shut.You can never erase what you say or write especially on social media.If she asks for your opinion try to change the path of the talk as to really make her think about her choices.I’ve learned this from Luise and the ladies on WWU.You didn’t mention how old DD is.Good luck.

Thanks Luise.In Canada it would be a miracle to find restaurant open on Christmas Day.That’s the reason thvat I’m cooking.Oh well!! I’m looking for a recipe to cook the turkey the day before.Hubby Can carve it and I ll take the stuffing out of it and wrap in foil pan.I’ll make meat pies a few days before.Salad and gravy can be made at his condo as the mashed potatoes.Do I sound excited?? Well I am. :)

I received another email from DS.He said that we were welcome to spend Christmas with him at his condo.It’s going to be a lot of work for me.I’m bringing the meal. Lol Anyone cook their turkey on Christmas Eve??? I have never done this but going to his place an hour away,bringing dinner and all the trimmings.I’ll be tired before we get there.I do want to spend the day with him and it’s his first invitation since DS doesn’t usually celebrate Christmas.Any suggestions? We have a big house which will be all decorated.

Hello.I was a member several years ago.I always enjoyed this group especially Luise.Hi .It’s  Nikncon.Things have gotten better,
.DS has a new job,new condo,new town,new puppy.DH and I helped with the move in Aug.Now near Christmas.DS emails me and says to forget Christmas exists.We went to Florida for several years.We don’t anymore.DS says that we were in Florida for several years .He was always invited down and came once.We always celebrated with him before we left.I feel guilty now because my new husband of eighteen years did go away mostly after Christmas.I was so hoping to have him and his puppy here with us.Should zi reply to his email .What Should I say? His dad passed away when he was 24.His young brother two years later at twenty one.Two suicides.I feel awful.Help.

Welcome HopefulWish!You will get very positive advice from these ladies.They have helped me through some difficult times.I am so lucky to have found Luise and this wonderful group.You are too.

Dear Blue Eyes.So sorry for all the pain that your family is going through.There are many women wiser than me on this website but I would say do what makes you feel comfortable.If you feel like it just send a very simple greeting card.If you don't feel like it don't send one.Your ODD needs your support.You need to be healthy too for all of them.YDD will hopefully grow up and see how badly she has behaved.Prayers your way.

Hi Luise.I haven't forgotten you or these wonderful women who helped me through hard times.DS is still having some problems.New school,new grades to teach,new principal,new condo.I just finished taking a course on anxiety put on by my medical clinic.It was nice to have a group to go to every week for three months and discuss our problems.Two social workers directed the group and we had lots of written homework.I learned a lot about myself and how to handle stress.My DS has been over for Thanksgiving and we met him last weekend in the city.DS treated us to lunch.Hopefully he is being helped also by his councellors.I have just started reading WWU tonight and was so glad to see your message.You are my inspiration on a lot of AC topics.I am now awaiting an appt with a urologist because I have blood in my not sure when I will get in.Cannot go to Fl without clean bill of health.Think of you and. The girls often from the other group.Say hello to them for me as I have tests for the following few weeks.Hugs Nikncon.PS DS calls often to ask about my tests and results.xox.
