Darling Husband is gone for Christmas this year for the first time in 7 years. He works at a mine way…. Way…. Way….. Up north in Canada haha. I sent him up there with cards from all our family and some gifts to open so he doesn’t feel left out. Going to celeBrate in January instead, still makes me a little sad he wont be there to wake up beside on Christmas morning 🙁 Anyone else without their SO this christmas?

@MrsHoneyC: YES! 🙁 Mine just left for Canada this afternoon. I live in Florida and he lives/works in Alberta. Sorry your Darling Husband will be gone, I feel your pain.

@MrsHoneyC: SO and I have been together for 3 years and in that time I have never seen him on an actual holiday day except for New Years Day (but never New Years Eve) because his Mom hates me, (to be fair she really just hates anyone he dates) and he won’t leave her alone on holidays since he’s her only family left (aside from a brother and sister in law who live about an hour away) Yes it bothers me, but I know that in the future we will be spending the time together (and our families will be invited over of course, and his Mom will have to choose whether to suck it up and get along with me or snub her only child and be alone during the holidays) Honestly, she’s nuts, he’s said that it has nothing to do with me personally, she does this to everyone. But I can’t help but feel like it’s something I’ve done wrong. Ugh, but to answer your question, no I will not be seeing SO for the holidays

Yep, mine went up to Boston for the month. 🙁
But I encouraged him to go, ’cause he’s going to be touring Yale, Harvard, MIT, and Princeton for his grad degree in architecture. It’s a really good opportunity for him to figure out where he would ideally like us to end up next year.
He toured Yale today and they told him they’d even help me find a job if he got accepted!
