Christmas as a Couple
I think there may have been a thread similar to this last year, but I thought it was worth doing again. Can I ask what peoples' plans are for Christmas this year, either as a newly wed couple or as an engaged couple? Are you doing anything special? Are you facing any new challenges?
Our biggest challenge is always finding time to spend together, whether it's the holidays or any other time of the year really. My OH travels a ton for work, plus has a bundle of young children that obviously require a lot of time & attention (especially toting in the car to and from school and multiple activities).
I'd love to think of something we could do, but my options are limited He is traveling from 12/11 - 12/21 and then leaving again on New Year's Eve. We were going to try to organise a 3-day weekend getaway this weekend, but we've already canceled the "getaway" part, partly due to activities at his childrens' school on Friday. We still plan to have a nice meal out and do some Christmas shopping. I know I should be very grateful we at least have this time together (he was gone 3 of 4 weekends in Nov, plus another whole week on another trip)...but I can't help but feeling a bit down about it all. I put the tree and decorations up all by myself...and was really gutted when no one even commented
I want to live vicariously: tell me about your plans!
