After having a day of picking up rocks and finding life altering ugly things beneath and knowing that more ugliness is to come next week, I'm looking for ideas of what to do on Christmas Day. We've never done a movie on Christmas Day and that's a possibility but we are simply skipping any real semblance of Christmas this year, no tree, no gifts (we don't usually do much anyway), and no idea where the soon to be ex-husband is. (I'm hoping with his level 7 healer...or at the bottom of Lake Superior).
Obviously, we don't have a ton of money to spend. We have two dogs to look after so I don't feel comfortable leaving the house for a long stretch of hours and we're all feeling a bit shaken and sad. I told my daughter that no, we won't be going through the house and throwing all of his possessions out although I must admit, that has some appeal.
I was hoping for something like baking cookies together or better yet, continuing the ONLY real tradition we have consistently held, FRY SOMETHING! For some strange reason, it has developed that the only time I fry anything is on Christmas Eve. I have a recipe ready to go for homemade doughnuts and at this exact moment in time, the only thing that I know is true is that I intend to make doughnuts.
But I'm up for suggestions. We need to feed our souls and hold onto the most important things in our universe. Each other.
