So today we had to go see my MIL who was supposed to be coming to our house for Christmas (she invited herself and we made the arrangements around this). Now, she has messed up her back and won't be coming to our house. She didn't tell us until today and now expects us to come to her house for the holiday. I was completely caught off guard and while I didn't say "yes" I also didn't say "no". Then she tells hubby (after I was already out to the car) "see you on Christmas". I had invited my grandma and let my older daughter invite a friend and her mom (since they don't have a lot of family around). We haven't gotten an answer from my grandma, I think she is going to my aunts, but I don't know for sure, and my daughter's friend had a fire at home recently and is staying with her older brother, but we don't know how to get in touch with them to see if they are coming. I don't want to go to my MIL's house - no one does - and if we dont' go she will still have plenty of family there - my SIL lives next door and will be cooking dinner for her. Would it be terrible of me to call Monday and say I was taken off guard and didn't realize that hubby had not already agreed to come for the holiday and that we won't be there? I don't want to have him do it, I think he would go out of guilt if he called her. I am thinking of calling and then telling him I did and we can stay home.
