I am totally hyped to say that my Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with the people I love, it was quiet and peaceful, and the food was amazing. Way to go, Mom, by the way! I skipped Black Friday because besides being broke beyond belief, I wanted to just lay around with my babies. And that is exactly what we did. My children enjoyed a 5 hour Power Rangers marathon, again, which I ain't gonna lie, I did too. We played board games, ate Thanksgiving leftovers, and spent the whole day laughing and hanging out. It was amazing. Ever since the ex became the ex, my relationship with my kids has changed. It makes me sad, but my kids have really blossomed with him gone. They laugh more, they are more silly and carefree, and just generally happier. It makes me sad because I couldn't see they were stifling themselves to adjust to their father's strict, frightening behavior. But it makes me happy because it's over now, and they obviously feel safe with me. I might not have gotten in on the sales at the stores, but I realized I got a great deal at home anyway. With "He Who Shall Not Be Named" gone, we have 80% less drama, 100% less fear, and 200% more happiness, and that's a deal I can live with. ;)
