We got home on the 24th to a cold evening. After unpacking, we built our first fire in our new home and enjoyed Christmas Eve, just the three of us. A stinky part of divorce is not having your children with you on important family-time holidays. I thought maybe it would be more difficult than it was. I missed K, C, A, and J. But, we had just seen A and K, C, and J were with their dad in a cabin and I knew they were having a great time. This makes separation so much easier.
