    Default OT - Thanksgiving RANT

    So, DH's family is celebrating Thanksgiving twice. One with the extended family, one just close family. I was told I can invite my family..so I did. My mom wasn't interested but my dad said he'd go. I was astounded - dad usually doesn't go to those kinds of things. So, the one with extended family is tomorrow. DH's uncle calls me about an hour ago - and my dad is there. A day early. I spoke to him quickly on the phone, but he was just gonna head back and home and he's not planning on coming back tomorrow. He says I said the 17th, but I didn't. I even said the 18th in the "confirmation email" I sent him. He doesn't live anywhere close to DH's uncle's house so I feel bad he drove all that way for nothing. I got off the phone and texted DH. By the time I got it through my head that I could atleast go see him for a bit - my dad had already left and headed home. He doesn't get cell phone service out there either.

    SO, DH calls me and basically chews me a new one. He kept saying to go out there and spend the night and I kept saying he's already gone. So, he said, "Fine". But I wasn't sure what he said, so I said , "What?" He said, "Nothing, whatever, bye."

    WTF??? I already feel crappy cuz my dad is there on the wrong day and he thinks it's because of me. But hello, it's MY dad, not Tim's dad. I dunno why the hell he caught an attitude with me about it.

    That is a mistake that could happen to anyone. Your dad is just being stubborn and doesn't want to come back. Hopefully today he felt a little better and made the drive. Hope things worked out.

    The holidays can be so stressful! I hope that your dad decided to make the trip afterall, and that you and your hubby kissed and made up.

    Well, my dad didn't come today. But, I told DH he was being a jerk on the phone and he apologized and said he didnt mean to come off that way.
