Is anyone else trying really hard to be happy and enjoy Christmas only to have someone else be in such a foul mood that it's basically ruining it for you?
I sure am.
Christmas is my favorite holiday and now I have two kids to spend it with and of whom is just about 3 so he's really starting to understand and be excited. Then there's my husband who is stressed out and bitching about everything. He's getting mad at me for every single thing I say or do and just said he feels "trapped" in our home.
Merry effing Christmas to you too.
It frustrates me because no matter how hard I try to have it be fun and happy for the kids(and myself) he seems determined to be unhappy and bitch everyone else out until they're unhappy too.
He's stressed out because he hasn't bought any Christmas presents yet...which is clearly our fault?
All I want for Christmas is for him to seek counseling or therapy.
Just needed to vent that out.

Sorry about what his bad behavior is doing to you but this is why I'm so happy being divorced! lol My life is so much less stressful. My x ruined xmas for us every year. I am not telling you to leave. I'm just saying I understand. My option now that my kids are grown are being alone on xmas but that's not so bad since there isn't stress, aggravation and disappointment. I hope things get better for your sake and your child's sake. Sometimes it's not about gifts but about quality time together. Maybe dad will figure that out and you can have a happy holiday.

I would take my kids and leave. I would tell him while your on your way out that if he insists on being an asshole to you then you will not stay to take it. He can be moody at home all by himself.
