    This is my first Chrismas since my dad died in August. I understand how you feel. I'm rewriting the holiday this year-turning down a lot of parties, not doing a lot of shopping.im keeping my focus on me, ds and husband, and it's helping. Hugs to you.

    Keeo the focus on your family like @Lakegirl34 said. Celebrate her memory, not her death.  It's hard losing a parent, no matter how old you are.  It's going to be rough for awhile, But we are here for you if you need to vent or need someone to talk to.  If you want you can PM me.  I am usually available to talk!  Hugs!

    @bigheartedlady Im in the same boat except I lost my Daddy when I was 14 5 days before Christmas. It just plain sucked the joy outta Christmas for me after everything we went through with him medically since I was 11. I have never again enjoyed Christmas or the holidays, I suck it up enough for DD, but she understands this is a tough time for me and that I'm not going to pretend to be overcome with joy and magic and wonderous delight. In my house we dont lie. I miss my Daddy oh so very much and nothing will ever replace him. 
    I am me, and I am loved

    @Bigheartedlady no one should give you any hassle over your feelings! I hated Christmas for a long time after losing my grandpa.

    I do love Christmas but I hate all the stupid crap that goes with it.

    Enjoy the time with your family, and only do what you want to sweetheart. ((((HUGS)))))

    Why on earth would you be afraid to post this?  My dad passed 7 years ago in July, and I've missed him every single day since, but never more so than at Christmas.  It was his favorite holiday.  He used to love to torture us about opening presents until he was ready to play "Santa" and pass them out.  I really isn't the same with somebody different handing out packages on Christmas Eve.  I don't like it, and it always seems to be about what my mother's husband & his family wants/likes.  He doesn't like seafood, so we can't do our traditional Sicilian/Catholic Christmas Eve.

    Oh well, sorry, didn't mean to steal your thread, I just know what it feels like to miss someone at Christmas.  I miss him even more since dd was born, knowing how much he'd love spoiling her rotten...though I gotta admit, I'm not sure I'd miss the spoiled rotten part. ;-)

    My Mom died 9.14 this year. I want to pull a blanket over my head and hide until 2013 at the very least.

    Big hugs to you.

    Most banks have a line for reporting your debit card/checks as stolen even if it's outside of normal business hours. You might have to navigate their phone menu to find it.

    @bigheartedlady, Walgreen's has *great* security cameras!
    Call them & tell them what happened, they'll review the footage!
    They can even match the person to a name if the person made a purchase there.
    Good luck!

    And yes, call your bank. Also call the person who bought the gift card...they can get it cancelled & replaced from where they got it.

    The person doesn't even have to go to Walmart...
    They should just call the number here: http://help.walmart.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/180/~/lost-or-stolen-walmart-gift-cards

    @BigHeartedLady if you have any neighbors that you know you might want to ask around...if you wait on it, the person who stole it might use it and exhaust the funds.
