Ba Humbug

Its holiday time. The time of year that my family expects me to make my once a year visit. I alternate Christmas and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a GIANT affair with my extended family (to my 2 great aunts and uncles) all gathered together. Christmas is just my moms family.  This year is suppose to be Christmas.  I don't want to go. I don't like 90% of my family and I've been in a rough place mood wise and I don't feel like I have the willpower to keep my mouth shut. Greg will be with his family (he's never not spent Christmas with them and doesn't really want to start now)

I'm at a point in my life where I would rather spend my time with people who are always in my corner and have my best interest at heart. Not to make my mom and grandma stroke out because I am letting all the skeletons out of the closet, but to give you an idea of what I'm dealing with.

Here are the top reasons I have very little Christmas cheer for my family.

1. When I was leaving ex husband I asked my grandma if she would co sign a home loan for me. My credit was rough, but I had enough income on my own to cover the cost. Grandma asked my aunt and she advised Grandma not to do it....so she didn't and I had to pay double what a home would have cost for a rental and it had no central air. I moved every 6 month for a year and a half. Some of the places I lived were pretty scary. I hold a grudge better than anyone I know. I've never forgiven my aunt. I forgave Grandma somewhat because she paid half of divorce #2. But since she GAVE my cousin her house when she moved to her senior citizen party palace it was still hard to do.

2. My cousins (except for 3) are always in and out of either prison & jail. It alternates between the  two. Honestly I'd rather my kids not be around criminals.

3. They married pill whores White Trash. Who neglect their children because. They are too busy sleeping around to be bothered.

4. I just don't know that I can bite my tongue enough to keep from getting arrested for assault.  Last week Parent of the Year let her baby fall off the bed when he was crying so hard  he was gasping for air until he slumped over she did the completely logical thing.....SHOOK HIM! Now how in the world do you think I can keep from slapping a bitch after seeing stuff like that? I can't.

Mom tried to guilt trip me to get me to come  to Christmas. It didn't work. In order to be guilted you have to care a little about the topic in question. As much as I like a few people in my family, I dislike the rest strongly enough to know I need to spend Christmas in a stress free environment. I already have a separate Christmas at my house for my dad and my sister. I invited mom this year too.

  1. Ah family, we all have those people we would rather avoid. I do it too and I know it hurts people's feelings but it's not just me anymore, I don't want my 4 year old around the drinking and the drama.

  2. I have no problem with not seeing family. I love Christmas and I choose to believe it's just my mom and dad, aunt uncle and their 3 kids. I haven't talked to my psycho bitch of a grandmother in almost 15 years, and I have no intentions of ever changing that. Family is who you want it to be, you don't have to let the bad apples ruin yours or your girls' holiday. Do whatever it is YOU want to do!
