Okay, so obviously this Christmas is a hard one for me, weird and awkward but ok I guess.
I suppose it is somewhat similar for you but for slightly different reasons; hope it helps to have Nana and your uncles around.
You’ll just have to forgive me if I’m behaving a bit weird while I adjust to you being 1000 fucking miles away for the foreseeable future!
I am very happy for you, too, even while I feel sad for myself.
And I am mad that you have created a life for yourself even though your ENTIRE upbringing had this result as its goal-- go figure!
So if I act weird right now just cut me some slack and I’ll be fine, uh, eventually.
And I want you to know how proud I am of you, today and always
Merry Christmas-- have fun!
