So sorry...holidays are meant to be joyous! I would unplug and just focus on your, baby, kids and hubby. Stay in, and forget the little stuff! Hugs to you!

Re: My big pregnant Christmas rant

I'm sorry!!! Big HUGS!!! I would tell the sis and dad/smom that your counseling services are closed due to sickness/impending labor/holidays. Get the kids to decorate the tree, no matter how it looks, it's only for a couple of days anyway. ^what OHIOFIFI said about the wrapping. As far a cleaning goes, I would either get everyone to do their own rooms and try to get the dishes and laundry done myself and that should at least make you feel a little better OR don't worry about all that and be sure everyone stays hydrated, takes some vitamins and laugh about this year next year.

I'm 39 weeks and am in the same boat as you. I have boycotted Christmas this year. I was too tired to get the wreath out of the garage and hang it on the hook on the front door.

I have a two yo so she doesn't know any better. I'm not going to my parents house - across town (or as i like to think of it the house of drama) for any events. I have not bought any presents. I told my DH not to buy me anything. My parents are coming by at 11:30 to give DD her presents and have a quick lunch. That's it. I would have skipped lunch if DH hadn't said something to my mother. I was thinking an hour was all I would have to deal with. But he is cooking.

I can't believe anyone really expects anything from you. You are very entitled to your vent!
