I need to vent and I have no where but here. No one need read this and I may just delete it.
Went to dad's for Thanksgiving and things were going ok at first. Then the wife starts in on my about how I better watch what she is doing in the kitchen because next year this is on me. A - NO. I don't cook meat and I don't have the room or the money. "Well your sister is moving so you're going to have to. I'm done."
Whatever, fast forward a few minutes. We were talking about old tv and movies and some brought up Annette Funicello. "didn't she die? " "yes, it was in april when Margaret Thatcher died. Someone had mentioned that two great woman had passed to me I knew about Thatcher but giggled to myself when Funicello was mentioned. I mean world leader and mickey mouse club?" that got a giggle from the people I was talking to but also got me attacked by dad's wife.
I simply stated that I was a child of the 80's and grew up admiring her, Gorby, and Reagan. Then my dad yells at me about Reagan. A dad, you voted for him! I left the room and went in the garage with the smokers. The rest of the day I was open for cheep shots from darling wifey.
I didn't over eat but ended up with a bit too much wine. Fortunately we came home early and it's over. I just went to bed. I can't keep dealing with this. I'm not trying to offend anyone and all I did was bring up a dead woman's name. I'm so tired of being the red-headed step child in my own family.
I was going to go shopping today but I lost my mood. I'm depressed and feel like crying. My family was NEVER like this before her. Now my sister (not that we really get along) is moving to Colorado, my dad is warping his past to fit wifey current political pressures, and because I won't lie or agree with thing I really don't I'm a piece of dog doo. It really hurt.
Holidays are all I have left. I'm the eldest female and I can't save the clan. I don't know how to deal with it. I'm certain dad and I will be fine today, but I can't deal with her anymore.
I guess I should get dressed now. Thanks for listening.
