Christmas Eve; a big feast with a couple dozen friends. Christmas Day; single malt scotch & feet-up in front of the fireplace watching the wife shovel the drive...

As your comment is completely uncalled for...it being posted simply to insult...yours is the comment of a truly small man. Oh and if you think Canada is a 3rd world country, be sure to inform the OTHER 6 members of the G7 of that. Of course you know Canada is indeed wealthy enough,so I will take your insult as not towards my country but towards me instead.

It was worth it, just for that elaborate and labored response.

Merry Christmas!

Most of this time of year is really, ridiculously stressful, and this year has been worse than most. I hate the pressure and the million commitments/promises/obligations I have to meet, all of which are at conflict with one another. Something has to give, and it usually ends up being my family, a fact which I fucking detest to my core. It's really, really hard not to let it get you down and make you incredibly bitter.
QBN,

Been there for many years. Have to actually admit I missed the bulk of my sons' lives from ~2 to 16. Thought I was doing something important enough to put them behind my work. Bad set of priorities. Lucky to have a wife like one I have, and my kids are lucky to have her as their Mom. Got fed up perpetually grouchy. Determined it was work, and quit my job, found another that allowed me to work out of the house on my own schedule for a few years, liked that, and when it became too demanding, I quit and started my own company. Work at home, make my own schedule. You might think about it. Once the kids are eating soup off your head it is too late. That moment has passed. I found there were others, but I missed a lot.

I actually had a good year and have lots to be thankful for - and hope for a good 2009. Christmas is all family. I will collect my 80 year old Aunt in NJ on the 24th, and have the kids home, which makes the wife happy. New Year's is at home here as well, with trips to see the in-laws squeezed in (like last weekend, and likely between the holidays).

And, yeah, I am grateful for Obama, at least for the moment, Drew. Jim

How sad... ~2 to 16 is virtually the entire life of our children. To miss that is to miss almost everything IMO. I am sorry for you...
