He decided to come but gave me a lot of shit about it. I had to listen to him bitch and moan the whole hour long drive up there. When we got there it wasn't that bad, he had a place where he could disappear if he needed and everyone respected his need to be on his own when he needed. (His TBI comes with social anxiety as well as a sensory issue where lights and sounds can overstimulate him and trigger headaches and feelings of seasickness and such.) He told me three hours, I didn't think that would be long enough but I agreed, 3 hours.

There were a lot of questions about what our plans were, people were naturally curious but they have no idea what a loaded question it really was. Our plans, I have no idea...I don't know what kind of a man I will wake up next to on any given day, how do I know what we want to do with the rest of our lives?
My girls were big hits, TC was quiet but loved playing with all of her cousins and Addie was a ham, as always. Double fisting desserts like a champ. It is great that they are finally getting to know their family, it was a little overwhelming at first but by the end of the day it was like they were born surrounded by these people.
Overall it was a success. We ended up staying about 5 hours because Will said he was fine to stay and he played poker with the boys. There were times where I felt overwhelmed and missed our little small family holiday but it felt really good to be back where I belong. On the ride home I had to listed to Will bitch the whole time about my family and me making him stay longer than he wanted (don't even get me started on this - staying was his idea!) at one point he called me trash for doing something that he "can't even remember I just know I heard you and thought you were trash". We have my family Christmas celebration at the same place next weekend, I hope he decides to stay home - I don't want to even give him the chance to ruin my day.
