I know I should be all excited about the upcoming holidays, but I am not. My oldest sister whose house I used to go to has devolved into a prescription drug addiction and it has become painfully evident. I hate being around her, but I feel so sorry for her children.... I want to offer them stability but I also need to protect my own kids. Ugh. Then there are DHs parents who drive me crazy routinely. DH is actually working Tday so we are on our own. I want to make thanksgiving myself but middle sister is in FLA, her kids are all away. So, I end up turning down sister and dealing with in-laws by trying to count my blessings while biting my tongue!
