Oh, goody! Another Christmas Day. Bah, humbug! Just call me Grinchy. Oh, it shouldn't be that bad. The kids are old enough to understand I don't have to spend the morning with their mother. We'll have our Chrissie lunch tomorrow, with my Dad and Nola. Today should be quite restful in most respects. AJ and I will enjoy our quiche and salad out back, perhaps sharing a nice white wine, and then later we'll pick up Charlotte, Jessica doesn't want to come, and take her to dinner with the quasi-parents. Apart from the bad jokes, they're a low stress encounter.
