Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

Time is that quality of nature which keeps events from happening all at once

Time is that quality of nature which keeps events from happening all at once.  Lately it doesn’t seem to be working. Anonymous
I love family.  Really.  I’m not being snide (much).  We have his and her families – go figure; most married couples do.  They both decided to “eat” at 2 pm on Thanksgiving this year.  Yay.  So, a choice had to be made…my mother wound up seeing her daughter and stepdaughter in shifts.  I so needed to be in two places at once.  It was the first time in a long, long time that my stepsister and I would have been together at a holiday and my mother wanted pictures, but … my husband’s brother and his wife decided to cook Thanksgiving dinner for the first time ever … and invited 16 people.  Sigh. The worst part is that I’m not really comfortable with my husband’s family right now, so I would DEFINITELY have preferred to spend the day with MY family (shocking, I know).  This is just an unusual state for me; his family has been great, but living together was a bit of a strain and it went on for 5 months.

For the next two days, I just want to stay home and enjoy the quiet.  I don’t want to feel any pressure from any family.  I don’t even really want to see any family.  We’ve had two days visiting and two days of “aren’t you going to…” and I’m tired.  I have two very small children…I’m doing THE BEST I can, thankyouverymuch!


Well, that feels better…sometimes you just need to vent.  I love my family, I really do…but I swear they are out to make me crazy.
