Any dreaded holiday plans?
Thu, 12-15-2011 - 2:29pm

Everyone has holiday plans they hate. I'm ready to laugh about them. We have a ton of family Christmas events lined up, but these are the two I'm dreading. Anyone else have horrible plans, lol?

Background info... my family and I don't get along, but we all put on big smiles and pretend to. Until somebody has a big glass of wine, slips and says something stupid, and it all breaks loose.

Normally we don't have any dreaded plans, but this year is different, I'm dreading the whole Christmas eve. I just miscarried, but we were planning on making the big announcement on Christmas Eve. To make it worse, we have a family member that also just found out they were expecting and they are making their announcement on Christmas Eve. We would have been due date buddies. I know about their news, but they don't know about my situation, so it will be hard. To make things worse, my hubby and I are the only ones in the whole family that know these relatives news and when they told us, they even said that we should have another so that their oldest would be the same age as our youngest. So, I was so excited to get to tell them our news. But, now we are back to TTC.

My dreaded family Christmas no longer goes on since my Grandma passed away last year.

Wow, I can see why you would be dreading both of those events! Luckily, we don't live near the more annoying relatives so can avoid most of the conflicts. One of my grandmothers-in-law knows what buttons to push to get people upset, so glad I don't have to deal with it this year ;)
