Did the holiday go well for you? How did things go overall? Any issues that cropped up this year?
Overall, for myself, holidays are pretty simple since 1. we don't have kids and 2. our parents live down the street from one another. The only issue I had this year was that I was unable to bring my dogs with me to my parents house. Unfortunately, they've been banned (nephews are allergic). It kinda sucks and obviously, it also means we don't get to stay there as long nor be there as often. I'm kinda peeved about it, but we all know human welfare is more important than dogs. Sigh.
Another thing I had an issue with is my DH. He does this every time we go to my folks, so I shouldn't be upset, but we talk about it every time we go to my folks. I guess it's one of those things I need to learn to accept as I don't know how to deal with it. Thoughts? When we go to my folks house, he'll leave to go "say hi" to his parents. Well, he'll be gone for hours. Come to my folks to eat dinner (or whatever) then promptly fall asleep. So, basically, he comes to my folks house for food and a nap. It irritates me to no end and I think it's really rude. Bleah. it's one reason I'm happy spending Christmas apart (he basically doesn't ruin my favorite holiday). He also likes to go home by 9pm. My family are night owls and also, once my brother and his family leave, I actually get time to spend with my mom and dad....alone....without interruption...and with their undivided attention. Usually they're too busy entertaining the kids.
Maybe I'm being selfish, maybe I just want to spend some quality time with my folks. I dunno. But during the holidays, is when I would rather leave DH at home, then come with me and it makes me sad. Actually, I'd rather leave him home anytime I visit my folks. lol. Just because I think what he does is so disrespectful.
Ah the holidays. Time to want to ring someone's neck. lol. I mean, the time for families to get together. ;)
