Just wondering how everyone's Christmas went? Any fun, happy, sad, angry stories to tell?
For me - the day was awful awful awful. We went to my ILs on Christmas Eve (mistake number one), with the plan to stay for a few days, and while it wasn't a large group of family or anything, it was still just too much. I made it through Christmas Eve, but yesterday I had a full on breakdown, ran out of the house with an excuse to go find WiFi ( mistake number two - my ILs live in the country without cell service or wifi, so I felt completely disconnected from any source of encouragement or venting) and headed out to the beach to just sit and cry and miss Colton. No one talked about him, no one asked how we were doing, nothing. We had framed prints made with a quote we like and his name and birthdate to give to everyone in his memory, and no one really cared when they opened it. I felt so drained, I told my DH I wanted to come home, so while we had planned to stay a day or so longer, we came home late last night. His family was so mad we were leaving, they didn't understand why it was such a difficult day and why we wanted to go home (his mom was crying in the kitchen when my DH told her we were leaving, having a pity party for herself that we were leaving early). It was so awkward and awful and I really didn't care. I just wanted to be home and in my own space. I knew the day would be hard but I didn't prepare myself for how difficult it would be. Being at my ILs I felt like I couldn't just be sad, that I had to hold it all in and put on a happy face, and it just exploded. This is one Christmas I will never forget!
Thanks for letting me vent! Any one else have "fun" holiday stories to share? Or actual fun stories to tell?
