...why Devon's dad wanted him before Christmas this year. It was just really odd. His dad is always pushing for more time with Devon. This year was my year to have Christmas with Devon. The way it has always worked in the past on those years, is that Devon goes down after Christmas and stays for a week. This year, at his dad's suggestion, Devon flew down Friday night and came home Christmas Eve morning. Not even 5 days when you look at how late he got in and how early he left. We figured that they were going on vacation after Christmas and didn't want to take Devon. Wouldn't be the first time. However, Christmas Eve night (after he was home), Devon was texting with his step-sister (the 19 year old they kicked out over the summer with no warning, took her car, she had no job, etc). Devon got a game and $100 for Christmas. Not bad. The youngest, 9, got a laptop, Wii games, Wii accessories, and on and on and on. They easily spent over $1,000 on her. K had the nerve to tell Devon that he would have done more for him, but that his company wasn't giving out bonuses this year. Devon found out Christmas day that his step-sister got a toaster oven and $50. So, that's why they didn't want Devon there. It's not like they do things at certain ages. Devon's never gotten anything like that. And usually what he did get, he wasn't allowed to bring home - even though he's only down there 2 or 3 times a year. Devon called K on Christmas Day at K's request. K mentioned nothing about the little one and didn't have Devon talk to her like he normally does. He doesn't want Devon to know. Devon has found out lately about so many things his dad has lied to him about. He's pretty much done with him. He did say he might call him next week to see if he is home. He's still thinking they might be going somewhere.
