(Newser) – Alex Rodriguez will be spending the holiday with family—just not his own, the New York Post reports. The Yankee slugger’s wife told a friend, “My soul-less, soon-to-be ex-husband is abandoning his kids on Thanksgiving to be with Madonna.” Cynthia went on to describe the singer in “not so nice terms.” A-Rod will host dinner at his Manhattan apartment for Madonna, her children, and her manager.

“Alex likes a woman with a strong hand," said one insider of Rodriguez's decision to return to New York to be at Madonna's beck and call. "He likes to be told what to do. He's a bit of a cipher."

The holiday season is nearly coming. I know that holiday travel tips and easy loans are going to make my holidays a lot less stressful. The holidays are a pretty stressful time for me as it is. My parents divorced when I was a little kid, and although there’s an agreement to spend Thanksgiving with one side of the family and Christmas with the other side, I still feel obligated to make it to all the events for both sides. I want to enjoy this important occasions with them. More family get-togethers mean more money spent on gifts and more travel—a bunch of added stress. Luckily, I found an article that gives great advice for holiday travel, which means less stress for me. I was actually planning on driving to all of my holiday events, but with mountains between my loved ones and me and a 2-wheel drive car, that’s probably not the smartest idea I’ve ever come up with. That’s why I’m so thankful for the holiday travel tips I discovered. I completely forgot that Amtrak even existed, but taking an overnight train would be a great idea. It sounds like a train ticket is going to cost me less than it would to drive, and I don’t have to worry about my car getting stuck in the snowy mountain pass. However, I know that holiday travel doesn’t always go smoothly. I don’t need more stress, especially when I’m running on a strict holiday budget. That’s why I know easy loans will be a lifesaver if something unexpected comes up this season. Click to learn more about stress /">Easy Loans .
