We’ve been making cruel decisions about the holidays in the last few days. We were going to volunteer a little time at a recovery club this Thanksgiving, but the Captain has invited us to dinner instead. We don’t have to do both, G reminded me, and food holidays are not our favorite things.
We are going to take a heavy hand with our family for the Christmas holiday also. Cruel tho it may seem, if one of them has made no effort to contact us, to see us, or even email us, we are not giving them a gift this holiday just a card. Perhaps we should send the card saying, we missed you this year.
We understand they have moved on with their lives, and we are at the bottom of the food chain. There are pictures of all of them up in the office here. We miss them.
