I've decided George's foolishness is not even worth it. Especially when one takes in to consideration that my money is better spent visiting my brother and making sure my family has a great Christmas. George will pay for his own behavior sooner or later. In the meantime I'm focusing on what's important - my family. Without them I don't know where I'd be right now. I know one thing for sure though - I certainly wouldn't be anywhere near as happy as I am now. You have no idea how much that means to me, especially considering I had a rather dysfunctional childhood. I figured that I would never know what it's like to have a good family because of that. What's funny is that's exactly why we have such a good family - we have both learned from our pasts and work to keep from making the same mistakes that we've seen others and ourselves make. That's not to say everything is perfect but it's a lot better than anything I've ever known. That goodness is reflected in Brennan, who people constantly say is the happiest baby they've seen in a long time (some have said he's the happiest baby they've ever seen).
I wish everyone could know what it's like to have a family like this. I think the world would be a much better place if they did.
