i'm there with you. i should be used to it after this long, but it still sucks. and this year, my 3 older ones got to spend the day with their father and his girlfriend's family. i'm so tired of hearing about how wonderful she is.........*gag* i guess i should be grateful that she seems to be a decent human being, albeit stupid for being with him.

I feel it too, but this year, I tried not to make a big deal out of Christmas - to myself. After I dropped the kids off, I put on a grown-up movie, cleaned a little, drank some Baileys and relaxed. Whenever I got homesick for the kids, I reminded myself that they will be back soon and I should enjoy the quiet while I have it.
