It's definitely better if you don't have to drive a long way to just get there, because at the end of the day you have to turn around and make the drive again. Hopefully you'll see some winter wonderland sites along the way.
If you don't enjoy being there, host your own get together or stay home.
If you stay home, the entire family gangs up on you. We're all still upset with my cousin's wife because she hasn't visited for two years. It's a dead end either way.

I know. What happened to sitting by the fire and drinking hot cider?
You're so right. No one should have to feel like a failure, especially during the Christmas season. Thank you, Lisa

I know my niece who's eight wants a pair of $600 headphones as one of her presents this year. Thanks, Lisa
It's great that you have a sense of humor with all that's going on during the holidays. You're cool! Lisa
I get you about being under the covers until Spring. It does sound like you do a great thing by volunteering though. Also, I would like nothing better than to go to the movies on Christmas Day. Thinking of you, Lisa
