Seriously, going to bite one of them!
We've traditionally done christmas at my house because I was the only one with kids and they all said that kids should stay home and not travel on christmas. That kind of faded a couple years ago, as mine are pretty old now and enjoy visiting.
So my mom says to come up and stay with her and her boyfriend. Ok. Great. What day? So she and my sister take a good month to figure out their schedules for work. So we were going to go stay with mom on the 28-31.
Then the schedules changed for my sister. So I have to bother everyone at work to try to get different days off on the holidays (oh that's fun, people here love me now!). So now, we were set to go stay with mom on the 27-29th. My sister hates my husband because he had a stupid argument with her 6 years ago, and she can't let things go. So she is telling me I should just come without him. Even if that weren't annoying in itself, does she think I'm traveling so far alone at 33 weeks pregnant?? :dry:
Then last night mom called me and suggested that maybe we'd be happier at a hotel nearby! So now she wants me to come and visit for a couple hours on the 27th and just stay in a hotel instead of with her. What the heck? :mad:
I'm tired and don't feel like the 5 hour drive each way, anyway. Then the scuffle over the schedules, my sister pouting because Tom is coming made my head hurt and made me grit my teeth. But now being tossed out of mom's house too?? Not exactly feeling the love. But I feel obligated, because I DO love them and miss them.
But I'm tempted to just stay home now. Instead of running all over, spending the christmas money on a hotel and gas, and dealing with my sister's drama, just sitting home and enjoying the week I have off. I will have the 21-31st off with nothing to do but be with my kids and tom and my puppy. And just relax. But that makes me feel so guilty!! :confused:
What would you do?? (besides kill them, because Tom already tossed out that idea )
Anyone else with crazy family?
