Technically, this will be my first Christmas alone. I say technically because it's not like I haven't seen anyone or will in the days prior or after. My son also spent the night here but will be going home when he wakes up to be with his Mom and the in-laws. Usually every Christmas was divided between going to my family in NJ on Christmas Day and celebrating with her family on Christmas Eve. I did go to my old house last night so that we could all give our gifts to Jordan (my son). There was only 5 of us so it was a little less festive than years past. I was there for about 3 hours and my son and I came back to my apartment because I got him and X-box game for Christmas and he was desperate to play. I let him stay up a little later than normal and then he asked if he could sleep in my room with myself, the doggy and kitty. Waking up with my son next to me was the best gift I could receive. He doesn't fully understand Christmas or seperations, so he is quite happy, and he'll get additional gifts from his cousins and Grandma in NJ later in the week. But I'll be back here by 9am after that today and the rest of the day I will be alone. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I got to see my wife and son, and I'll see family next week. I did have an opportunity to see my Dad last week but it didn't work out. So I did, or will, sort of see everyone, but it still feels weird knowing I'll be home alone today. But Santa did leave some treats and a few toys for Jerome and Mischa though! So there will at least be a little gift opening here!
