Not so Jolly Christmas Update

December 24th, 2008 at 06:09 pm

This is not a financial post, but I have to vent.

We always spend Christmas Eve with my family. It is usually a boring time and I can't wait to get home because of the lack of activity. This Christmas Eve was especially memorable. We were there all of about 15 minutes before my brother threw his plate and said he was going home. He stopped long enough to yell at my husband and then his daughter had to take him home(because he lost his license for his, I don't know, 5th? dui). She drove him home yelling at him the whole way.

My dad was hovering really badly tonight. He was driving me crazy. And my sister was getting louder telling him to sit down and let others take care of things, which pissed my father off and he almost exploded. These were just a couple of the highlights of the day.

I lost my keys and spent a good 25 minutes looking for them. finally found them pushed up under the sink in the bathroom. good thing...I was fixing to start walking the 7 miles home in the thunderstorm.

    Maybe your family and mine should get together. They might get along better with one another than we get along with them.

    Put your foot down and stay home next year. Its not worth the aggravation. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

    I'm sure you have much company. the christmas portrayed on TV and other media is so contrived and artificial, it really sets impossible standards and expectations.

    I'm sorry your family doesn't get along so well.
