I posted this on the original thread, but I figured I’d do it again since sometimes after a certain point I don’t go back to old ones.
We left it alone for a few days, and then earlier today I let SO know that while I’d love to have him there and he’s totally welcome, I understand if he wants to spend the day with his family. After all, we’re not married yet, nor even engaged (still gunning for that by-next-summer-proposal but that’s another thread). Unmentionables were not mentioned.
He called me tonight and gave a few options.
A.) We spend the night at his parents and wake up early to have TWO xmas mornings (quickly leaving town for the second)
B.) We stay at my parents. (original idea)
C.) Either of those but we take separate cars so he can come back but if I wanna stay longer I have that option.
He’s really wanting to have xmas morning at his parents, since that’s the way they’ve always done it-just like mine. BUT, he said, he also really wants to be with me. Again-no unmentionables were mentioned. Dunzo.
I’m gonna call my mom tomorrow and see how she feels. Xmas eve in our house has become lazy as of late. Mostly just TV watching, so it may not be a huge deal.
It was sweet of him, though. He thanked me for being “understanding” and giving him the option. 🙂
He’s been super sweet since then. I mean “who are you and what have you done with my boyfriend?” sweet. Tonight he went out and got me a rose “just because.” It doesn’t hurt that winter break started (he’s a teacher) and his stress level went back down to 0%. Can this last forever…???
