    I'm kinda bummed this Christmas b/c FI is going to fly to San Diego (this is where his fam spends the holidyas every year) on Sunday...he comes back Tuesday.

    I'm going to hate splitting the holidays once we get married .

      Sorry to hear you won't be together. I second you on hating to split the holiday. Are you at least going to be with family?

      aw leia. i hear you. my FI gets 3 weeks of christmas vacation thanks to his job. he left for mexico this past wednesday. i cant fly down there to join him and his family until dec 29 because my evil boss told everyone we cant travel outta town for christmas because last year he got stuck losing vacation days because a bunch of us traveled. (how is that our fault something was needed last minute and he was the only one in town) anyway so now i have to work dec 26 (when nobody is even going to be in our NY office, so we cant do anything without them, so i will probably sit at my desk twiddling my thumbs looking over pages ive already edited 20 times) and dec 27 and 28 to ship pages to our printer for the magazine. these 10 days FI and i will be apart are the longest we've ever been apart, so we bought me a webcam and he has one built into his computer and we've been video chatting every night which helps a lot. i'm just freakin annoyed that i have a 4 day weekend where i am sitting here wallowing in self pity because i would rather be in mexico with FI and his family doing fun stuff.

      my family lives here in chicago so ill spend christmas with them, but my parents are divorced, and not amicably, so it is always a fight over who gets me for the holidays. sometimes it makes me really feel like a commodity and not a person with feelings. i sorta feel like just telling everyone i want to stay home, but i know that wont fly! ive agreed to go to mom's family's for christmas eve and dad's for dinner christmas day. but still, ugh. sending a big hug your way!!!

        Thanks Maura...you are too sweet! Sorry to hear about your situation. I hate family drama...and as for your FI being away, I'm sorry to hear about that too. I'll be thinking about you on Christams and sending you some holiday cheer!
