I’m sorry, this situation sounds really tough.  I recently married and my Darling Husband works most major holidays (where he is gone for 14 hours per day or night).  My family lives far away and I am not goin to ditch him on the holidays even though he is working:)  I don’t have any friends in town, either, so I am going to use the holidays to watch some blockbuster movies and eat what I want.

Can you do some things you love to fill your time while hubby watches the game? Cook some of your favorite foods to have for the week or take the next day to DH’s family dinner? If that doesn’t interest you, could you hang out with friends? Find an organization that needs volunteers?

Hey sister. Yes. I can very much relate. I left my mothers home at 15 and my father’s at 18. Divorced, obviously. Because of that divorce I have had separate holidays since I was 5 so it never really felt right. Since 18 I haven’t been home for the holidays much. I happened to spend one Christmas with my father, it was so awkward with his wife’s family (wife number 4 BTW). I ended up bailing out of spending Christmas Day with them and was holed up, alone, in his guest room. A friend took me to Denny’s and we got drunk. Drunk at Denny’s in Florida, Christmas night. Yeah, super classy. You already know, it’s not the people you are born to that always make your family. Sometimes its the people you choose that mean more. Just don’t get drunk at Dennys at Christmas. Thats just sad.
