This Christmas my oldest sister, decided she want to have Christmas with only her kids, not @ my moms, were to not go to her house, she didn't want inlaws either. Just a small family Christmas. Ok I understand, that's whet she wants no problem. Christmas day I bundle up my kids, go to my moms, my whole side there, just not my eldest sister. Fast forward to boxing day, my eldest sister told my other sis, that's she's hoping to come here news years day. So my other sis cc, my mom, my eldest sister, and me in an email. " We want to be kept in the loop, if your headed to her house, we would like to go to, my mom chimes in, yup, we would like to go too, nobody has saw my sisters kids this Christmas, so they would all come to my house, for my sisters kids to open their gifts.. ok, that's sounds great, but just yesterday, I drove over an hour on Christmas day to do this with my family if we were gonna do a Christmas here, I wouldnt've have gone to my moms. So what my "kids get to sit here and watch my sisters kids open gifts for an hour, while they get nothing? I have to clean my house up ect, make a day of it, cause my sis wanted to have Christmas at home!! If I say no to family I will look like a ...... for not wanting to have them. My mom wanted Christmas on Christmas say I was there. I did Christmas with inlaw family at my house on boxing day, with a 46 pound turkery... If my family wanted to come here, I would've done it all on the same day!! I only have Sat, Sun, Mon, off over Christmas then back to work!! Maybe I would like some quiet time with my family!!! So annoyed with eldest sister!! I feel like sending them a note, My dd bday party will be Jan 8, you are welocome to meet us then. My eldest sis even had the nerve to mention that maybe I could drive back into the city, (where my mom lives and meet her then) What I just drove there on Christmas day.. So you wanted a nice Chritmas at home with your family, your making all this work for me!! And she and her hubby have 2 weeks off!! I have 3 days What the heck!! What would you tell your family, there all awiting a reply!!
