But I have a cold and I'm annoyed and have to bitch first.

Overall, yesterday went well at J's dad's - - good food, spent time with the family. But. J's annoying cousin Rex is living in a camper in the yard since his wife kicked him out, so he was there.

When we walked in, Elizabeth was still in her pajamas. The house was a mess. I got the girls started straightening up things while I started the food. I warmed the ham and then baked the dressing Larae had made, put on the broth for the dumplings... we were supposed to have turkey, but Larae didn't thaw it, so J's dad couldn't cook it. We just barely had enough ham.

We also found out that, even though I talked to Larae last Thursday and we planned this dinner, she didn't tell J's dad about it until Saturday night. He had made plans with his girlfriend, but had to cancel them.

Eve talked J into pulling their lighted deer from storage and setting them up for her while I was finishing dinner.

After we ate, the girls opened their presents, and we finally got around to taking a family picture. We headed home around 9, and I went straight to bed.

Now we're back up and are going to have a Christmas lunch at my aunt and uncle's, but honestly, all I want to do is go back to bed. I go back to work tomorrow, I have a cold and there was a slip in the mailbox last night - - Christmas Eve! for a certified letter concerning our property taxes in Rhine. I haven't told J yet, but I think we're going to have to use the money we were going to use for fixing the floor, and use it for the taxes and wait until we get our income tax refund to fix the floor. J's dad will be out of town indefinitely and won't be able to help him fix it anyway.

Merry Christmas.
