I could practically feel your stress shooting out of the computer!! My mother and your mother would get along famously!! You should be booked on the same flight with her and try to get to the airport on time!! I want to focus on the positive and say that your husband sounds soooooooo wonderful and understanding. My husband is trying, but this is fairly new to both of us, so I think it is still rather frustrating and it "gets old" for him at times. He does try though. I always try and remember that they miss the old "us" too.Your husband sounds like a wonderful man. I am so glad you have him. Is there anyway you can have someone else in the family have Christmas and you bring some goodies? I am just thinking of ways to reduce your stress. How about telling your mom dinner is 4 hours earlier than it is? lol! Take care, and get some rest.
Karen, I was touched by the warm kindness of your husband. What a great guy. It is difficult not being able to do as much as before. I am struggling with accepting that, too. But it is so nice to have an understanding husband or other family member. Your dh sounds like a wonderful man.
