Having to see my MIL. She goes FAR out of her way to make others feel terrible because of her own unhappiness.

I don't dread anything about the holidays; I love them. The shopping, the wrapping, the music, the food, the parties, the giving, the family getting together, the decorating. It's awesome!

Going to my super-Christian in-laws, dealing with a few of SO's family members who don't like me, and the ever-present possibility that SO's ex will shove her way into time set aside with the family specifically so we don't have to see her.

 I dread my parents coming for Christmas.. well really I dread MY MOM... She undermines my DH & I when it comes to our DD. She causes me a lot of stress. I love the years she goes to my sisters house which is almost 3hrs away. Sadly it's my year :(

The worst part is all the rude people. I hate having to go into a store or parking lot this time of year.

I said family stress.. but it's more planning/budgeting, and stress on myself.. have both my daughters birthdays in december.. so between thanksgiving, their birthdays, my nephews birthday (also a december baby) and christmas.. there is a lot of planning to do..

The gifts part I'm done with though ;)
