Seriously?? Family crap, OT

I'm not going to go into details about everything because it woudl literally take me F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to explain everything but my family is FULL of drama. Always has been, always will be. I've NEVER known my life without drama.

Since marrying my husband and having my wonderful son I've done my best to stay out of the drama and done fairly well. I've made it known to everyone that I want no part in the gossip/talking behind peoples back etc.

So this afternoon my grandma calls me and starts up on stuff. I won't go into details but it is just stupid. Anyway, I tell her over and over that I don't know anything about it and I don't WANT to know and I don't want to talk about etc. But she keeps up. She tells me something to the effect that her and my grandpa had decided their time with this family was done and blady blah blah and I don't say a word. I repeat myself again that I don't know anything about whatever it is and I don't want to know etc. She keeps going!! And again I repeat myself!

Are you F'ing kidding me?!?!?! I am 1 week away from giving birth to my 2nd child. I do NOT need to be dealing with this! So then she all of a sudden says that she just wanted to call and see how I was doing and after a couple minutes of BS we hang up. So now I'm pissed! At first I was pissed because of the drama starting again but now I'm pissed because I SO do NOT need this right now!!! Is she that insensitive that she doesn't care? Obviously.

At first I wanted to call my brother (who avoids the drama like myself) and vent to him but then I thought, no I shouldn't do that and perpetuate everything. So I called my BFF and vented to her and now I feel better.

Okay, I'm done. Thank you for listening!

Girl I feel your pain. All my fam is in town and staying together (14 adults, 6 kids 9 and under!) in a 4 bedroom townhome! My dad is a 'heavy drinker' if you know what I mean and OH THE DRAMA! Let's just say I drove HIM back to HIS house the other night bc he was wasted and he needed a time out. How fun it is to be 37 wks pregnant and wrestling keys from your drunk 61 yr old dad so he doesn't drive...even after you get him home Sad

This is the reason we avoid most of our family AT ALL COSTS!! you just keep focusing on the next week, that is what is important, not all the drama! Smile

It's sad that it's your grandma. You would think she would know better. And seriously have a little common sense, don't start in on you when you are this far along.

My mom is here and rather than her help me, she has become an emotional wreck which has made me worry about her. She has an eye injury and she shouldn't have even come up to stay with me. My dad has been giving her crap about her don't being able to deal with the pain and coming up here over the phone, and I have to pick up her pieces. This week has been the most uncomfortable I have been since I have been pregnant and I have to deal with your ***.

Not to mention she won't let me get up to do a damn thing and it's really starting to irritate the crap out of me. She asks me every five minutes are you feeling okay, how are you, yada yada. I finally had to tell her that the baby isn't going to be born when she's here and when she leaves, who the hell does she think cooks dinner, does the laundry etc. I do. So let me do it. I told her to stop throwing me off my routine and let me do something. I have to stay somewhat active. And now I sit here and worry about her, her eye and her emotional state.

Sorry this was about your grandma causing you stress and I just took over and started ranting. Sorry sweetie. I'm sending you a big 'ol hug.

Here are a few of my favorite family quotes:

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts. ~Author Unknown

The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into perspective. ~Robert Brault

The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.

Veronica & Kerri, I am sorry that you are dealing with this crap. As hard as it is, just blow them off and focus on what you are doing (growing a baby!!) and be excited about that and do not let them get you down! Sending warm wishes your way.
