I’m super nervous. I’m going back to Texas tomorrow, to be with my family over Christmas. My mom and I haven’t been on the best of terms since I started planning the wedding. FI won’t be coming with me. He’s going back to Pittsburgh, PA to be with his family. We’ve been apart for more than two weeks before, so, that’s not worrying me as much as spending “quality time” with my family. My support won’t be with me, and it’ll be hard to stand on my own without him. Our wedding is just over 1 month away, so, it’s crunch time. Most of my family’s pissed at me because I’m not getting married in Texas, and I just don’t feel like dealing with mean people for over two weeks.
Am I getting myself worked up over nothing?

No, thats definitely something to get worked up about! Why would they be mean to you? If they start being rude, book a flight to Pitt!

I think things might have a chance to be smoothed over because you’re going home to see your mom in person! Things don’t always translate well over the phone/email and often things are fixed between my mom and I when we’re just together and appreciating each other. Hopefully that happens for you too!

Spending time with family should be fun and relaxing (although it usually isn’t)… just think of it this way, this is your last holiday to spend with your family as an unmarried woman. Every holiday from here on out will have to be split among families. If things start to get hectic, remind yourself (and your parents) that it’s important to focus on what’s important at the holidays, and that’s just being blessed enough to be together. If all else fails, you can always rely on goodnight talks and ‘i love you’ from your FI.

I totally understand. My mom and I fight a lot, as we are just completely different people, but over the holidays I just try my HARDEST to suppress the urge to fight. My FI is normally my support too, but he won’t be there with me either. I really miss him over the holidays!
If you are having a hard time, call your FI at his place and just vent for a bit. You can make it through this last holiday at home!
