This is not exactly a hill yet, I guess. But, I would like to someday spend Christmas Day with just my parents (only child) at home, and not feel like we have to rush through our own celebration, so we can get ready and drive to relatives two hours away... in the US Midwest in possibly bad weather. From my parents' house in the country on a poorly-plowed road.
I floated this to my mom last year (it's her side of the family) and she said yes, that would be nice, but not until after my grandma died.
If plans haven't already been set this year, I might at least suggest having the family gathering on a day other than Christmas Day. There are relatives much closer than us to Grandma who can be with her on Christmas Day, if my mom is worried about her being alone on the actual day.
Hmm, sorry, I hope that doesn't sound callous of me... Considering that this Thanksgiving, Grandma asked me what I was up to in my life, then after about four or five sentences told me it was "boring" and started talking about herself again, I just don't get really excited about visiting her.
