Tonight I had a wonderful evening planned, trimming the tree, decorating the stockings, and listening to Christmas music. I also had cinnamon candles burning when my family got home. My husband got home and tried to turn off the music, proceeded to fire up the X box, until I asked what he was doing. His response was that "this" was my "thing". I was so upset that he separated himself from the family, that I went upstairs, he followed we landed up in an argument in front of the kids 6,4, and 4 months. I decided to leave to cool down our 4 y/o wanted to come so I let her. We came back within an hour and he had taken the kids with him to his parents house and are sleeping there tonight. What is the deal? Was I in the wrong?

Ummm....I may be wrong...but storming out and staying with his parents over Christmas decorating MAY be sign of bigger other problems. I speak from experience. My dh and I worked things out eventually but he used to tune out and veg in front of the video games, completely separating himself from the family. We were young tho and he had never had to compromise before and didnt understand why he needed to know. He is STILL not a big holiday person. Doesnt get why they are a big deal to me. But there are some traditions that he knows require his presence and some where he only needs to be on hand for heavy lifting and and extra hand with the kids. I am agree with many of the PP's too. Men do much better when warned ahead of time....a few times! Good Luck. I know how much it sucks to have great holiday plans ruined!
