Well, Christmas went...fairly smoothly? The most exciting gift my sons got was a "Guitar Hero" guitar and a "World Tour" game for them to play on their old PS2. The guitar and half of the game was paid for by my 14 year old who was more excited to have been able to give it than his brother was to open it. They had been trying to get me to allow them to open it for days.... So yesterday my youngest rips open those gifts, puts the game on the PS2 and nothing happens. The rest of the morning was spent trying to get the dang machine to function but nothing helped. It reminded me of Christmases long past where somebody had bought the wrong batteries for the best presents and NOTHING (no Kwiktrips) was open (which is as it should be) but there's no solving it today or any time soon because we can't afford to replace it. I feel so badly for my older son. I just got him back home on the 23rd for the first time in a year so I'm frantic to make things "right" for him and he's so bummed.
