I was really looking forward the Holiday’s this year as it’s our “first” year as a married couple, and I just love going all out for the Holidays.
We have had no relationship with my Mother-In-Law or SIL since the wedding which we are just fine with us; they are too toxic to have in our life. We have always had a great relationship with Darling Husband fathers. We had gone back home to Darling Husband hometown last Christmas, so this Christmas we are doing it at our home. I am going to be doing Christmas Eve dinner and my parents are doing Christmas Day. When we had originally talked our Holiday plans out with his Dad he said he was coming up, so I was totally excited, it will be the first time that his Dad comes up for a Holiday so I really wanted to make it special. I went out and bought all of my table decorations and planned my Menu to make for the day.
Last night my Darling Husband brings up the Holidays to his father and his Dad told him he won’t be coming for Christmas that he will probably come after Christmas now. I am totally bummed out. We both were really looking forward to Christmas with his Dad, it’s been a really rough year on us family wise with his mom and sister’s drama and just really were excited to feel like we still had HIS family. Of course I start over thinking and I just start thinking about when we have kids. We already agreed that when kids come, we will no longer travel for the holidays since his family lives 7 hours away, and I just wonder if my Father-In-Law will then start coming up for actual Holidays, oh well.
