I made it through Thanksgiving, it was also my Anniversary. I really hated cooking and cleaning on my Anniversary , it was mostly for his family, because the only ones of my family that came was grandaughter, Kelsey and my oldest son. My daughter had to work, they others had plans,as always. I got up at 5 am. Thanksgiving so much to do,but while having a cup of coffee, with husband, he said I know this is allot of work on you, but we have always had Thanksgiving and Christmas here and had cooked a all the food. Let me explain this. The house we are living in , it was his aunts, she passed away 2 years ago in Feb., he inherited the house and insisted we move in it and his mother moved into ours, which is on the same land. I had to do all the going through her things, and he kept allot of her furniture and other things . It is impossible to move two households into one. Since I did not want to move to start with, at least I wanted to do it my way, slow and put it up as I went. I moved everything except tv, washer and dryer, which he didn't even want to move washer and dryer, because she had one that worked, that was old and mine was almost new. anyway, it came down to, my mother-in-law wanted to move in by a certain date, but no one was helping me, finally my father came and helped even though he didn't need to be lifting things. I knew this house needed allot of work. My plan was to do what was needed to get it ready to move in, taking as long as needed. Instead it was dumped in piled up and put up whenever I had time to, and now we our in the mess of remodeling and fixing up. We have ran into allot of problems and while in this mess, he wants me to do Thanksgiving ,and Christmas diners and us pay for it because his aunt did. He want even consider letting his sister-in-law, buy and cook turkey or ham. We always done our holiday diners separate , I went to mom's and him here because he wouldn't rotate them with me, so we done them apart. Getting to the point of this whole blog. We done the diner, which I done well on my eating because frankly after cooking and cleaning, and being mad(, because I just wanted to forget it and do something for our Anniversary) , that did not include a family diner. I didn't eat much. On black friday, he worked on outside of house,I washed clothes and put things back together, Finally Saturday we took off to do something for our Anniversary, which didn't mean the same to me. We went to Pigeon Forge, done a little shopping, we stop to have lunch, breakfast we ate before we left and I had oatmeal and coffee, lunch was the beginning of the going off track. Hamburger and fries. We went to North Carolina and went to Harrahs and played some machines for about an hour.We had snacked on some unhealthy snacks, but I did managed to get an orange in and some water. By the time we were leaving my stomach was upset and he upset it more by telling me the motel rooms were to high, and how about, instead of wasting the money on a room, to go buy another heater for the house and get some steaks and grilling out, which made my stomach hurt more with the disappointment building up. I said just go home, I don't want anything to eat, just go home. My stomach was churning and I was disappointed, I had spent ,so much of my money that I had made cleaning to buy the things for Thanksgiving, because he hadn't got paid yet, and he had ruined our anniversary . I went to sleep I woke up and we were almost ion Sweetwater Tn. Where I wanted to go and had suggested going to start with. If we had went there to start with we wouldn't have drove 6 hours and would of had more time to do something . I was still sick and tried. Felt better Sunday morning and tried kindle the fire a make our few hours before check out romantic. Of course we had their breakfast. I did eat oatmeal and some fruit, but ate a sandwich from Dominos later, because that is what he wanted and I was hungry from not eating the night before. I wanted to go to Subway for I would get a salad. I think I got sick from eating all the grease in the food and was upset about things. I would of rather stayed at home.Today I am working on getting back on track , and making a plan for the next two weeks ,because I am at a stand still on losing weight. I think next time we go somewhere and he wants to eat fast food, I will insist on going somewhere I can get a salad.

    I do think you need to speak up and say no. Get some courage and surprise them all. You can do it!

    I hope you can find a way to put your foot down. I think at a lot of fast food places they have grilled chicken sandwiches. Also I eat salads at places like Wendy's. Zaxby's has a terrific salad! What a drag that the holidays were not fun for you. I think having to cook for a crowd takes a lot of the fun away particularly when you don't have the money or space to entertain. Maybe Christmas will be better. HOpe you got the better washing machine!
