I did the last 2days for them. I didn't cry, I cooked, I cleaned, I smiled, I sang, I dressed up, took pictures. I served meals and played games. I even laughed. My children had a great Christmas.

Now they are in bed, I took a minute to myself and my heart felt the full force of the pain that I have ignored by sheer force of will for 2 days.

Oh, it hurts. Knowing he said those endearments to her. Knowing he did those things with her.

My heart hurts so much. I am glad Christmas Day is done.

Congratulations! You did it!! Be proud of yourself and let the feelings come now that the day is done. Do something kind for yourself and sleep well.

Congrats to you! I am personally looking forward to next Tuesday at midnight because I want to put 2013 behind me forever. May you get through that day too and more to come. You are clearly stronger than you think!
