Grandma G wasn't expected to live much longer, so we packed up Christmas and took it to Florida. My parents put us up in the resort around the corner from Grandma's complex, and I'll admit, it was stressful for me. I had a spouse who griped about everything, even when I tried to show him some of my favorite places.
"Why do you like this place? You don't eat seafood!"
"God, would you LOOK at these prices!"
"Will your sister please shut UP for one second and quit harping at everyone?"
We took one day and drove to Bradenton to see my Great Uncle Mac and his wife, Carol. We enjoyed the drive and the visit, though I was still on edge about the SU's attitude, but he and Uncle M got along fine.
Another issue I had was getting my presents back into suitcases. Mom had to let me use one of Grandma's.
We'd celebrated my 29th birthday somewhere; I don't really remember.
