That totally sucks 🙁 I’d be really upset too! Hopefully he will make it up to you when he gets home! Can you celebrate tomorrow or this weekend instead???

First holiday with my husband as well, as he works today [thanksgiving]. He makes double time and a half, so we both think it’s well worth it. Lots of people have to work on thanksgiving, I don’t think it’s a big deal.

We will still spend time together after he gets home.

absolutely_tati:  i understand. I would have felt frustrated too. I feel like every holiday from our first year of marriage, something didn’t go right. But I had expectations of how I wanted them to go. So, I’ve just learned to remember that even though I have expectations, doesn’t mean that’s how is going to go. Things happen and things could be worse. 🙂

Awe man! That sucks!! I’d be sad too. Yes it’s wonderful that you have a great hubby who has a good job, but that doesnt make it suck any less to be at home waiting! I’d pull out the wine (or other beverage of choice) and veg out with shows he hates until he can come home. Sorry your day didnt turn out the way you hoped!

  • Wedding: September 2014

absolutely_tati:  I don’t know if this will help ya feel a little bit better or not by my husband and I are Canadian and we missed our Thanksgiving completely. We both had to work (I’m a nurse and he’s a machine operator at a capsule company) 🙁 That was our first holiday as husband and wife as we were married in September. Luckily we live on a boardering city to the USA and its not uncomon for families to celebrate both as they usually have family members in the other country. My husband and I decided that we are gonna celebrate on the weekend as he works today and tomorrow. We also found out we’ll be missing Christmas and New Years as well due to our jobs ( he found out their plant isn’t having shut downs anymore due to the length of time the machines take to start back up….he moved to the 2nd plant they opened). So Anyways don’t beat yourself up, things could be worse as others said and hopefully somehow my situation makes ya feel a little bit better!

I don’t think you were being dramatic at all. Nobody wants to spend holidays without her spouse.

I know this is a generalization and there are lots of people who don’t fit this mold…but…I think in general holidays mean more to women than men? I LOVE celebrating holidays. Even if we have to do it on different days, or have tiny little celebrations, or whatever. I like them and I want to celebrate them. I think if it were up to SO, we’d never celebrate anything ever. I tell him it’s important to me so we make adjustments. We celebrated Thanksgiving on Monday this year because he has no choice but to work today. We find someway to make it work. And he ends up enjoying himself and being happy once it comes around anyways.
