Yes, those words left my mouth about 2 weeks ago. We've both been slammed at work, and getting a Christmas tree . . . well, that just fell by the wayside. DH was fully in favor of skipping out this year. We leave for my family's house early on Christmas morning, and I'm one of those girls who ditches all things Christmas on the 26th (plus, trees are EXPENSIVE!), so he didn't really see the point. Call me overly dramatic, but I pulled the IF card. I responded that if we had a baby, we wouldn't even think of not getting a tree (true), and that we don't get some sort of a "pass" for our struggles. He laughed, said I could relate a hangnail to IF (possibly), and told me to go get the tree.
And I did.
And it's GREAT!
Here's to husbands helping us keep perspective. Wishing you a very, very Merry Christmas!!!
