It did finally happen, hubby worked a Christmas Day, and we survived...
It wasn't ideal, and it did suck. But it comes with the job and there is nothing I can do about it. He did come home 2 times, he had his dinner (not with us because we were already done) and it was nice for the family and friends to still see him even though it was brief.
What are some ways you deal with your significant other working holidays and birthdays? I'd imagine this will not be the last time he works on Christmas Day or any other holiday for that matter.
