So I have to vent about my brother in law's family. First my newly married niece of his invites herself and new hubby over for Christmas Eve dinner. I can handle that, young and not very 'hep' with the social skills. But I am totally pissed because now the rest of them invited themselves over for Christmas day!! Brother in law, wife, son & girlfriend, other daughter. My mother in law had a hand in this too. They didn't want her for Christmas (she is hard to be around), but as we live in the same area I always make sure she has a place to go.
They didn't want MIL this year, as the son and new girlfriend came home from college! But now they feel guilty, so they decided to drive over (2 hrs) for Christmas afternoon to see grandma, who will be at our house. She said we would have leftovers that afternoon and to come. I am just so angry!! So I got home and ate 6 sugar cookies!! Maybe that is good.
I don't get angry often, and if it that is my trigger now I know it.
If they were nice to be around that would be one thing, and I'm afraid I won't hold my tongue this time. You know, least said the better. I'm afraid I'll let them have it!!
Well, now I feel better that I vented.
