 Holy run-on sentence!!!!! 

But seriously, I know how you feel kind of.  I don't have to worry about a hubby not wanting to go anywhere..I just don't have the money to fly to the east coast for every holiday...:(

If he loves you, then what is important to you, should be important to him as well. I think you should go.

How far away is your family?

It's an adjustment, that's for sure.  Hope things work out for you.

That is the longest sentence ever. Isolation from family is a sign of an over controlling husband, please be careful.

christmas is kinda touchy with me... but with my faimly i have i try to have traditions and it's not about what you get... it's about the love of your faimly and giving to others.  like we don't do santa here... we aren't religious in any way really... but we still celebrate and i try to teach my kiddos even tho they are small that it's not about how many toys you get... it's about sharing love with others and being nice to everyone and that you shouldn't just do it for this time of year, but all the time!

and of course i HATE going to the store this time of year... really... last year my NEW sportage got hit TEN TIMES b/c ppl were too busy to pay attention... i even got a tail light knocked out TWICE... the same one at that!

so this year i did alot of my shopping online to try to avoid that b/c we have a new van now lol  and i kinda like it!

I can't imagine your man not wanting you to see your family...I would put my foot down, if you can afford it then go! My mom is in South Africa for the holidays, and my family is small, so my mom being gone really puts a damper on the holidays. I'm wishing she was only 12 hours away. Go see your family!!

First off, NO man will tell me I can't see my family.. If something happened to you and your husband who is the first people you turn to? Your family.. So that means if he loves you, then he will surely or needs to understand you want to see your family.. If he doesn't then he is just a controlling husband, and it will get worse!
