Hi all, Hope you all had a nice, not too difficult day. DH finally let me stay home for Christmas Day this year. Not to whine too much about it all BUT.... he made it nice for me with lots of gifts and we had a nice turkey dinner etc but all day, I had the feeling that he wished it was tomorrow. Why? Because his parents are visiting tomorrow and he can have a much more fun time with them. His Mom is hyperactive, talks a lot (too loud and too much for me) and is the life and soul (well if you like someone overwhelming everything in the house...LOL) DH is very attached to them and I know he feels like tomorrow is his real Christmas Day. I just feel hurt sometimes that he prefers the company of healthy lively people ESPECIALLY his parents (he's 38 by the way...lol) to me. I also feel so much pressure aall the time to see family otherwise he gets a bit distant and bored with me - welll, that's how he makes me feel although I'm not sure he's aware of it as he always denies this. Can anyone relate?? Love Bunchy x PS So sorry to whine today of all days but I just feel a bit hurt and not enough for him.
