Christmas – 1 Family

We all have those parts of the family that we dread getting together with. There’s one faction of my wife’s family that makes it hard to get through Christmas. Not all of them are annoying, self-annointed, looking down their nose at you, selfish, self-righteous, and always know (think) they’re right people that make me wish I could get in a car accident on the way to the party so I have an excuse not to show up kind of people.
I just found out that they had their Christmas get-together this past saturday. They apparently sent word about the party through a third party that the event was happening, and we (Christle and I) didn’t find out about it until just today. There is a long story to this, but for the sake of wanting to keep things simple, I don’t want to get into it. I’m not offended… ok, I guess I am kinda offended. For those of you who have a brain out there, when you want to invite someone to something, invite them. Don’t tell anyone else to invite them. Build up some etiquette, and do it yourself.
The rest of Christmas should be great.
I really do miss the fact that we won’t be able to spend time with them, I’d just be a lot sadder if they’d cared to make sure we knew we were invited.
Merry Christmas!
