So this week, we had Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas morning/day, and tonight for dinner for my dad's birthday with my family. As we were leaving tonight, my mom said maybe we could see them again, since they're here until Monday. On my feet, I had trouble disguising my disappointment and coming up with something to say. I have to volunteer in the morning, and she acted like that was fine, we can do something after.
We've just spent 3 days. I think my husband is going to blow a gasket if we see them again. The two of us really wanted to go to the stores and a movie tomorrow. Are we being unreasonable in not wanting to see them?
I could potentially see them early tomorrow (like in the morning before I volunteer) or early Sunday (they have a party to go to in the afternoon), but it would be just me. Then they always say, "We don't want Ryan to feel left out! He's welcome!" Then it sometimes devolves into, "Does Ryan not like us?"
I honestly feel kind of crazy about the prospect of seeing more of them. We're both so shellshocked after three days of the whole family and my nephews literally screaming in our ears all the time.
Please tell me I'm not a horrible daughter. Or tell me if I am. I need the truth!
