    Kelly, what you did to help your son has to be one of the toughest things a parent can do to help their child. My prayers to your son and to you in hopes that he stays on the path to recovery. I can't even begin to imagine what that would be like going through that and not really having anybody to talk to about it, to share the pain.

    While I didn't get a watch, my birthday is coming up so there's still hope, my husband got me all kinds of bulldog stuff which really surprised me. My big gift was the bulldog statue I picked up before Thanksgiving which I absolutely love. I got some flameless candles, some gnomes and a flower arrangement to go on my dining room. Then I got some miscellaneous stuff which I'll donate to the auction. . We had a great day.

    @KMARINO I'm so happy for you ... The life of an addict is hard, the life of the MOM of an addict is even harder. Kudos to him on two weeks clean! Every minute, day and hour is such a struggle, I will pray for him. And I agree with @JAKEISGREAT, you gave yourself (and Brandon) a huge gift with your choice. If he doesn't already, he will very much appreciate that one day. I was in tears just reading that, I've lost a few friends due to different types of addiction and some are still fighting daily.

    As for me, I got the gift of a relaxing Christmas! And some great gifts to keep me comfy ... New Uggs from my parents, an iHome from my hubby (which I really wanted for my bedroom but also to bring with us to the hospital when the baby is ready to show his face), a massage gift certificate from my brothers along with a recipe book for organic doggie treats. . Oh and hubby had this pic that I loved so much framed for me ... A big one for home and a little one for my desk at work. He's so thoughtful!

    Kelly I am so happy for you!!!! I cant imagine what it is you go thru daily with the guilt etc. You are a wonderful person and deserve the BEST!

    Hubby and I didnt exchange anything, well I said a $20 limit for the fun of it. He got me bath salts. Not bad. Got some jammies etc from my in laws and the bestest ever gift that I could ever get was from my parents. They went and got every home movie (and there were MANY) and made them all into dvds for all 4 of us kids to have. There is nothing better than having a real true to life memory of all our happy times in our lives. Starting from before I was even born all the way thru last year. AMAZING! I recommend anyone who has videos stuck somewhere to do this. Sierra is also enjoying watching them, all her aunts and uncles, etc. Not sure how they will outdo themselves next year. Last year my mom painted a special picture for each of us 4 kids and didnt think they could top that.

    I have my first car still, a beautiful 1967 Ford Mustang that was sorely in need of a radio. My wonderful husband bought me a replica mustang radio complete with old fashioned knobs! However, the radio I up to date with technology. Not sure if I love my car, husband or Arnold more now, lol


    I'm a good girl, I promise

It was so nice to hear my son back and not nodding out while we were talking. So many times I have had to say..Brandon are you still there??..He was clear headed and had his funny humour back. He is staying at my mom's right now and she said he looks WONDERFUL!!! That is the best Christmas present I could ever get!!!!
    What wonderful news, Kelly!! It is very difficult for a mom to see her child make poor decisions. I have one son that is a troubled soul right now and have had to step back and just watch. It is devastating!!

    Wonderful news Kelly. I know this subject has been a heartbreaking one for a long time. Hopefully good news will continue thru the next year with your son.


    Mark and I bought a smart tv for our Christmas present. We still had a tube tv downstairs from when we were first married in 1997. So, we went all out and bought a 55 inch flat screen...

    Then he went out a bought me a kindle and a Keurig. So sweet.
