    I never understood how my SIL could say that the holidays were exhausting to her (she has two kids). Now I know.
    Last year my son was only six months old and I don't remember feeling this way. This year? I feel like the last time I had a good break to sit down and relax was right before halloween. We had a lot more going on this year and a lot more drama to go with it, I think the drama is the most tiring part.
    I think I found it so tiring because we literally did the family rotation since before thanksgiving. We ended it with my BIL spending his last night with us instead of MIL and I got to hear all about how I am a "witch" (she used another word), that I don't let her see DS (she denied me when I asked her to babysit this month so it wasn't for a lack of trying on my part), there was a bunch of other stuff. It wasn't necessary for BIL to tell me these things, I already know how she feels and don't need it verbalized further. I am sad that she has to create scenarios that don't exist.
    Now.......... I am taking a deep breath because my family obligations are OVER. Now I can clean my house from top to bottom and get all these toys organized and put away. I am not making back to back plans like that next year.I don't plan on going back up to FIL (ever) and I am pretty much over trying to negotiate time with MIL. It seems like I end up sacrificing my time and energy and the only thing I get is backlash about how she needs to see DS "more". No matter what, it is always "more". So..... I am done.
    My new years resolution was to take some time for myself more often and not be pressured into so many familial obligatory visits and trips..... and I am STICKING TO IT!
