What Did You Do For Christmas?

Tell you what I did. I worked at two posts in my job as a security officer that took nearly 17 hours Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I wasn't able to see any of my siblings or Mom, I called her and we are got together on New Years Eve and had dinner. It went well.We went to an inlaw's house Christmas Eve, even the brother-in-law went. On Christmas Day my wife and son went to her sister's, I was asleep for good reason, the brother-in-law stayed home. He claims his sister and brother-in-law don't like him, probably it is the illness talking. I received many fine gifts as did my wife and son. Next year which is this year will be different, that is guaranteed. No more double shifts for me. Well, I had to buy medication for my son lately and it has cost about $400.00. It should be a crime. I'm going to try and get some help. He has had no luck in finding a job until recently when he was hired by a local restaurant. Maybe 08 will be better for him. It is a leap year. Nothing changes with the brother-in-law. He has virtually no life.Who knows what this year will bring? We'll see.-30-
