I realize I haven't made a proper thank you to those of you who sent cards this christmas to me and my family. I promise I will do that. Problem is they are hung up over and down the doorway and I can't lift my arms without getting dizzy to read them. So, I have to wait until Emma takes them down.
I have a lil vent here I wanna make. It is about my granddaughter Marissa's paternal grandparents. Dan is not Marissa's biological father, he is her stepfather. But in his eyes and all of ours Dan is Daddy to her and always will be. The biological father lives in another state, remarried with another family. His parents live right over in New Jersey, just 5 minutes from the bridge from where we live. The grandfather has not seen, called, held, or bought Marissa a gift or sent a card since she was 2 years old. The grandmother has not seen Marissa in almost 2 years. The last time she came to visit Marissa asked her who she was. Now is that pathetic or what? This year she received no cards, no gifts from either one again for her birthday or for christmas. My granddaughter does not need to be forgotten like this. She is a beautiful happy smart little girl and deserves to have family in her life. But you know it's not just Marissa's loss, it is their loss too, and my gain cause I get to have her to myself, heehee, but I do share with Dan's mom. lol.
Ok, I guess I have written enough here. I'm gonna go in pogo for a while and play some canasta. Have a great week all and a wonderful new year.
