Hi Everyone,

As we all know, the holiday season is upon us and that usually means family get-togethers. Do you look forward to them or are they a source of stress for you? Do you attend them? How do you politely get out of one (do you even bother to be polite)?

Lets see if this works.  I got an error message telling me I wasn't authorized to post comments. 

I was going to actually post something similar.  I had looked back to what I wrote around this time last year and was going to bump it but then realized that depending on how people have their boards set up it migth not float to the top, regardless part of the message wasn't even there.  

All that being said, It's a mix of something good and stress for me.

Good question Karla...

I don't really do them...

It was just me and my ds.

I got to see my dd.

I was abused as a kid so growing up you really have no choice, but as an adult woman I did...

Then I choose not to and I protected my kids...

I wanted them to have something I didn't "Safety"...
