A post about a cause that's important to me.
(Sorry if the last one's a little sad, but it means a lot to me)

I hope to see you again.


Sometimes I wish that no one in my family knew that I have a blog. It would make it easier just to write about the things that make me happy and the things that make me want to scream into a pillow. But they know about it, so there is nothing to be done about that now. What was I thinking when I said "Oh, I have a blog..."???????

Which is why this little day of getting a break is so wonderful. I feel free. Free to vent. Free to express something I have been dying to say.

I am going to be honest with you. My husband's family pisses me off. I have never met a bigger group of fake people in my entire life. His parents are off the charts on the crazy-o-meter and they don't even realize it.

His brothers are just as bad. One brother wants to be the clone of their dad and the other one just seems clueless.

Family get-togethers are like torture. Like, real torture. It's like Sayid from Lost has broken into your house on Thanksgiving and is ready to cut you kinda torture.

I have one sister-in-law who is so annoying that she makes me want to rip my own ears off so that I don't have to listen to her. She is two-faced and loves to be the center of attention. You can always bet that when there is family drama that little pill-popping diva is at the center of it all.

I have asked my husband many, many times if he was adopted because he does not fit into that mess at all. (Thank goodness!)

Now don't think I am picking on all of them. My family is dysfunctional too. But we are upfront about our problems and quirks. We don't hide it. We embrace it.

The holidays are rapidly approaching and I am wondering how on Earth I am going to get through another season of these people. I am guessing that is why alcohol was invented. Someone, somewhere had relatives that drove them crazy and discovered that alcohol lessened the pain of suffering through a holiday dinner.

I can go from January until November without a drop of alcohol, but the moment I get that call about family dinners, I head to the liquor store. I know that I am not alone because I have seen enough posts about mother-in-laws and other various relatives from my online friends. However, reading about their pain and enduring my own are two very different things.

The next time you think your family is weird or annoying, just remember are not alone. And some liquor stores are open 24 hours.

Allison said...

I don't think I remember writing this but I was reading it and thinking I must have because this is totally describing me! I'll have to remember about the liquor stores at Christmas because I am totally going to need it this year. :)

Ducky said...

Thanks for the reminder on the liquor stores. I'm not a drinker but I'm seriously thinking of becoming one. Best of luck with the holiday season.

Shell said...

Good luck getting through the holidays. 24 hour liquor stores...we should just ask for liquor as our presents and not even have to worry about picking it up ourselves!

Unknown said...

Praise the Lord for hard liquor!!! And Xanax. I'm a pill-popper, but not a diva.

Happy Holidays my a$$!! LOL

Tracie said...

Thanks for the reminder about the Liquor Stores! You may have prevented a homicide!

Unknown said...

I really feel for you. I just can't stand fake people. If I don't like something I will tell someone rather than hiding it and smiling. Or I will walk away. Those are my choices. Being fake? NEVER : ) The pill popping Diva does sound crazy, doesn't she?

kisatrtle said...

ah the 24 hour liquor store, a blessing indeed.

It is so true that all families are filled with nuts. I have a SIL who planted her placenta.


Epiphius said...

Family is great eh? My SIL once asked me how tall I was and when I said I was an inch taller than her, she said IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE FAMILY.... "Well I'm prettier!"

After reading all of these bLerApy posts and realizing that nearly 75% percent of them seem to be about in-laws, I'm starting to wonder if we've got in all wrong. Are they really that annoying or are we just unlucky enough to see them in a more intimate way than we would any other family? Nah-
