My mom asked me the other day what I was doing for Thanksgiving. Ummmm.....not driving to Texas with three kids and a dog by myself when there will probably be snow on the ground.
I told her she was welcome to come here, but that I was not going there.
The girls only get a couple days off of school, so I'm thinking we will stay here, and at most go somewhere in Colorado for a change of scenery. There's a big difference in a three hour drive than a 15 hour drive! The thought of traveling for two days, staying one day and then traveling back two days, makes no sense.
That got me started on thinking about Christmas. We'll probably do the same thing. Maybe we will go skiing, or there is plenty to do around our current post, that we haven't done.
So my question to you--how do you handle the holidays while your husband is deployed? Are you always the one doing the traveling? Have you ever reached a point where it is just not worth the hassle of leaving your new home?
I think we will be fine. Maybe we could start a new tradition? Let me know how you handle it, or if you have any suggestions on new traditions to start.
