Eh, it's Christmas

Merry Christmas, y'all!



I stayed busy yesterday cooking and getting last minute things ready as planned in my previous post.  Veronica came to help a bit but Valerie was MIA.  I found her barricaded in her room - literally her door was blocked so I had to force stuff out of the way to open it.  She was under the covers sobbing.  I knew right away it could only mean one thing.  See, she's had her first boyfriend since the beginning of November.  She was deathly afraid to tell us for some reason, but I figured it out long before she admitted it.  Cute kid, smart, in all honors classes just like Val, and in the band. He came out to dinner with us for her birthday, then she spent her actual birthday at his house at their family Christmas party.  He was supposed to be coming by today to bring her a gift and to see her.  She spent two days cleaning her room from top to bottom because he was coming over.  Well of course the crying indicated something had happened.  It took some prodding but I finally got that the idiot broke up with her sometime Christmas Eve morning.  REALLY WHO DOES THAT???  Not sure if it was via text or what, but apparently she got "the friend" speech.  ON CHRISTMAS EVE???  Like he couldn't have waited a few days??  I knew this teen romance wouldn't last forever, but why ruin her Christmas (and ours too?)

My heart was so sad.  I remember those days all too well.  Nothing like having your fifteen year old daughter sobbing in bed with a broken heart all day on Christmas Eve!!!!!!!  Teenage boys are stupid.  Like I told Val, that says a lot about HIM and his character - not hers.

Val did join us for Christmas Eve dinner and presents.  She was doing better by then and acting silly with Veronica.  I know she'll be okay.






Val was up early today and looked at what Santa brought, then went back to bed.  She seems to be in a much better mood.  Veronica was up soon after digging at what was under the tree.  We had Christmas dinner together.  Val and Roni hung out most of the afternoon playing games on their new iPad and laptop. 



That was pretty much our day - a whole lot of eating and sitting around doing nothing.

PS:  Should I be worried that when I told Veronica that the boyfriend had broken up with Valerie, her response was.  "Where does he live?  Let's burn his house down."

  1. No, I wouldn't worry too much about Veronica's response. She is just looking out for her sister! But I would check her pockets for matches........

    Looked like a nice day despite the teen angst! Did she get him a gift and can she return it??

    It was tacky of him to break up with her before Christmas especially as they had just spent some time together a few days back. Oh well!

    We went to Starbucks for breakfast and coffee, where I learned that apparently on Christmas morn (at least) it is okay to come to Starbucks in pajamas, no matter what age you are. Then we went to see the new Star Wars movie (hubby is as fan; I'm not so much). Then we went to Jack in a Box for lunch, then walked around a fancy resort here to see their decorations, then was going to end the afternoon by going to this dive bar that is opened 365 days a year for a drink. Who knew that it would be so popular? We couldn't get even into the parking lot! So we came home and had a glass of eggnog and now getting ready to make dinner in a little bit. It was a nice quiet day.

    1. Merry Christmas, Betty! Glad you had a nice day. I DID get the boyfriend a gift - spent about 30 bucks on him!! Unfortunately Valerie gave it to him early at her birthday dinner because she wasn't sure if she'd see him for Christmas. He did give her some nice things for her birthday, so I guess it's even. Sort of.

  2. What a jerk. Who does a Christmas dumping?!?! Seriously, why don't you just wait until January at that point?

    I know people debate constantly about whether or not to break up with someone the second you know you don't want to be with them any more vs. "you spent Christmas with me and you knew you wanted to dump me?" but still, it's shitty.

    1. Right?! Who does that ON Christmas Eve? My poor girl was so hurt. I know he's just a dumb 14 year old boy, but I know he knows better.

  4. He's an idiot. Don't burn his house down, he's not worth it. It will only cause you more trouble. One day someone will do exactly the same thing to him. Just focus on your studies, yourself, your goals. There are thousands nicer, better boys out there. Just wait until college and ... BOOM cute guys everywhere ๐Ÿ˜

  5. Oh, poor Valerie! The first breakup is so hard. Don't worry, Valerie, the best is yet to come.

  6. What a jerk! Tell Val I believe she deserves better. His loss, not hers.
