Again, thanks for the comments all.
We had considered renting a hotel room for the night (Christmas day through the morning of the 26th) but my S.O. was asked to take over for a project manager at work who is going on vacation; they have several pending deliverables that require attention, and he needs to be available the morning after Christmas. We're spending Christmas eve with a friend of ours in the Chicago area, so we wouldn't have been able to drive up the day before my MIL's party, either.
As stressful as it has been for us so far, we've already determined to make the drive up there. And as long as everyone remains civil and accepts our schedule, we will make the best of things. Who knows, maybe it will go better than we expect. <crosses fingers>
The Doctor: I hate robots. Did I say?
Roman Groom: Yeah, and he's not too fond of you. What's wrong with robots?
The Doctor: It's not the robots, it's the people. Dressing them up and giving them silly voices. You're reducing them.
Roman Groom: Yeah. Friend of mine, she made her domestic robot look like a dog.
The Doctor: Ah, well, dogs. That's different.
