Since the day I married my first husband (I only had two...lol) I never spent a holiday with my FOO. Sometimes I wished I had a family to go to. I don't even remember if they got together (all five or six of them) and if I just didn't go,if I wasn't invited, or they just didn't do holidays. I am not sure, but am trending toward the latter, although holidays with them would have been depressing. Because it has been so long I am used to my own family (family of choice) only. Sometimes TV shows will make me wish I had my own large, happy family to celebrate with, aside from my husband and children and at times friends. Usually I'm ok. I normally have fun, especially when we go to Chicago and almost all of us are there. How do the holidays affect you regarding FOO?
