That is ok because if they were being spiteful then I guess next year she will think before she sends such a dictating message. I think she wanted it to be afterwards so that way she could get rid of us sooner, but to be truthful I am not looking forward to going over there in the first place so the sooner I can leave the better. However, I plan to make as many comments that tend to lean towards Iam there for the long haul as I can while I am there to add to the discomfort *LOL*. In addition to not staying long we have to get Little Man home in time, early enough, to get in bed before Santa comes.

The next thing we hear about it is, Amanda received a text telling us that it will be on Christmas Eve at 3:00 and asked if we could come. That day I messaged my dad and mom and told them when they were planning on doing theirs. My mom asked if they could possibly do it at an earlier time in the day, Amanda texted and asked if it could be earlier than 3:00. She received the response that they were doing it at 3:00 and that my dad and mom could do theirs later in the day. We relayed the message and so ours is now at noon over at my dad and mom’s. Amanda relayed the message to her step-mom and it is kind of funny their attempt to once again control the situation. After Amanda sent the message and let her know that the time had been set over at my dad and mom’s and that we would be late, her step-mom sent a message and asked how much earlier would we like to have it. We, think that 3:00 takes the entire day for the most part. However, in order to avoid letting them dictate that we have it after theirs we said no, just keep it at 3:00, they have already set theirs to 12 to accommodate. I believe it was spiteful what they were doing, but I also think that it blew up in their face.

I have not seen any post from the list in a few weeks now. I am wondering if I have not gotten myself booted somehow unintentionally. I guess the last I seen any post was Tom and I interacting about the family issues. The issues are not a hundred percent, but I do feel that since Amanda stood up and stood her ground we have gotten more respect. Now, it seems as though we are actualy people and not servants. However, that could change at any moment. Well, we have our prequalification letter and have found a few houses that we are interested in. We have to call tomorrow and get a real estate agent. Getting the prequal was a bit ofa hassle though. Today Amanda and I went and bought little man some birthday presents and got his location reserved. Sometime this week we have to get the invitations filled-out. Amanda and I are in the home stretch of the semester and everything seems to be going alright. I am in one class where I will not know if I passed or failed until the final grade comes out since 50% of the points aren’t going to be figured until the end of the semester. Amanda as far as I know is doing fine in her classes, she has some projects that she is working on, but I belive they are going fine. So, as always we have a ton of things going on, but little time *LOL*. Have a good one and I hope to be able to read some list traffic here in a few days. Take care and chat later.
