Early morning, rough morning


On Friday there is no staggered schedule so we all had to get up early.

As you can see, that really sucks.

December, 1976


I really couldn’t think of much to write today, so I decided to post this picture of my brother and me from a Christmas season way, way back when. I’m five years old here and Sean is two.

I have a lot of fond memories of the Christmases I had with my family when I was a kid. We would spend Christmas Eve with my mom’s side of the family and Christmas day with my dad’s. The gathering with my mom’s side was always loud and fun. I don’t have any cousins on my dad’s side, so I always had the most fun on Christmas Eve. Sean and I were the youngest of my grandparents’ five grandchildren.

When I think about it, we’ve somehow created the same family dynamic for Autumn; she’s the youngest of five cousins who are all concentrated on one side of the family. The holidays spent with the Noahs are always more entertaining while the gatherings with my side of the family are more subdued because we’re a smaller bunch.

Last Christmas was terrific. It was the best Christmas I’d had in a long time, and I felt warm and secure, having no idea in a few short months everything would change. I don’t know what the holidays hold for us this year, but I know they won’t be the same without Nathan’s mom.

I don’t like the new wife. I don’t know if I’ll ever like her, but if I hope to give Autumn the gift of fond holiday memories, I’m going to have to figure out a way to just deal with it. I’d really like for her to be able to look at a picture of herself in front of a Christmas tree and smile.
