Scrooge at the holidays
So I'm a scrooge. I think the main problem is we are a young couple and have never had a relaxing at home holiday. We've spent the last 7 years shuttling back and forth between our families. Granted my family is an 11 hour drive away and his are a 2 hour drive. It's just annoying. Holidays are for relaxing...right. Then we inevitably get shoved on some air mattress and I always seem to get sick. So we are going on strike this year. My parents are coming over Dec 27th - Jan 2nd to OUR house for the first time ever (although they are staying at a hotel...because I just can't tolerate live-in guests). And I'm sure his parents will visit somewhere in there too. We are having Christmas Day relaxing just the 3 of us in our home in our pajamas all day. And even though it may be sacreligious to some of you...we are ordering take-out...cause I ain't cookin! :D
Anybody else nixing tradition in favor of relaxation this holiday season?
Holidays get stressful... In the past I had to balance these in 2-3 days... it wasnt a holiday it was work!!! This year im driving down to TX for the whole week to spend time with my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew, it should be a little less stres, lol
-Moms side of family (grandma, aunts...)
-Mom with us kids
-Dad with us kids
-Boyfriends extended family
But THIS year, for my family's side, we are forgoing gifts to each other, getting a hotel in a city that is centrally located for all of us on Christmas eve and plan to just hang out together. We'll swim in the pool, order pizza, play cards, whatever. Completely stress free and I am so looking forward to it!
