I thought we had all of our Christmases scheduled, and pretty well too - meaning, that at each Christmas, we were going to be able to get almost everyone there.
Now, DH tells me that his ex wife will have his kids for the time we planned on doing Christmas with his parents. He then proceeds to tell me that the time we were planning on Christmas with my family, she will also have the kids. And THEN - he tells me he's not exactly sure of the older two boys' schedules anyway (1 home on college break, 1 coming home on leave from the Navy) so he doesn't know if the plans would work anyway.
THEN, my mom decides that we should change ours so that we can combine it with my dad's birthday party.
I'm thinking of running away. This is crazy! How can we make plans if we are trying to plan on people who we don't know what their schedules are, like the college and Navy boys?! GRRR..
Do you guys have this problem too?
