We are leaving for my parents' house, about 2 hours away, this evening. We will drive back to Houston on Christmas night after our big family dinner. Then we wake up, pack, take the dog to the kennel, and will leave for DH's mom's house 4 hours away. This was not in our plans at first, we were planning on just staying home after we got back from my parents house and I was really looking forward to it. But DH decided he wanted to drive down there, so we are going to be away from home until next Saturday. I absolutely hate having to drive all over the freaking state. Next year, we are going to stay put.
Not sure what we will do that next week. I am out of school until January 7, but DH goes back to work on the 2nd.
