I’m so relieved
Happy dance! As predicted husband's daughter is NOT coming for thanksgiving. Which would have been her first holiday with her father in over 15 yrs. She gave some excuse about her husband but I guarantee she will be spending it with her in laws the same distance as we are. And the Christmas tree? DH has no interest suprise surprise. What a relief! Is it possible that him talking about doing a family tradition of actually chopping down the tree and putting it up scared her away? I did think that was not something she would NOT want to do with me and my adult kids. But I guess what bothers me is she is never honest and such a fake. DH believes every word and does not see the pattern here. It could have been different. I wanted it to be different but now why waste energy at pretending?
