Our plans for Christmas has been ruined.
We were meant to go to my husband's brothers on Christmas day. We get a phone call last night saying is it okay if our sister comes of Christmas day. My husband said straight out no. He doesn't get along with his sister and hasn't spoken to her for 6 years. So my brother in-law goes on that their sister invited her self and wants to spend Christmas at brother in laws house he didn't say no to her. Mind you this was talked about 2 weeks ago and we only find out last night that she is going. My husband feels a little depressed about it because he only see's his brother once a month if we are lucky. My husband seems to think the problem is because their father lives with his brother which of course he is going to want to see his daughter. We wouldn't complain so much if they lived near us but they do live 3 hours away so everything needs to be planned out. The children were excited to be able to see their uncle and grand-dad and we don't know how to break it to them that they wont be. We have no one else to spend Christmas with as my family are interstate and my husband doesn't talk to his mum as she went crazy.
I think My husband feels quite depressed as the children don't get to see any family apart from us every day and it gets them to have a talk to a different member of their family. if we knew this was going to be the case we would have went interstate for Christmas but that is to late to organize as my husband can't take time off work now and getting flights and accommodation would be a night mare now.
I feel really bad for my husband and children. And feel i have to make this Christmas special for them some how.
