Well it may not have gone as planned but i made it through christmas without a fight! After all the fuss my BF mother put up about keeping her family traditions sacred...well she got a big slap in the fact and it was her fault. Christmas Eve I had to work only because I wanted to to stay away from his family longer. Well I rushed home to get dressed and make it with the boys over to his Nanas house as planned to eat at 6. Well my sister came into town and decided to go with me to keep me company. Well we got there just before 5 and of course no one was there except his Nana. Well the whole house smelled like dog piss because his Nana doesn't know how to clean up after a dog she doesnt want to take care of. And we begin the wait! And we waited...and we waited...and we waited. At 7:30 my BF decides to call his mom...we are starving because we were promised food at 6! Well they are leaving the house which is 30 min away and has to pick up his sister and her two kids because her car is broken. At 8 he calls again...she is at his sisters house and waiting on the kids because her BF mom has them and whatever they are doing wont be done until 8:30...Really! So when they finally roll in the door at 9 I am so mad I cant stand it...but I keep my mouth shut. My poor baby who is 5 has been snacking on whatever he can and I have let him because all the restaurants are closed. And what threw me over the edge was when she said she was bringing food....she put down some chips and dip and a cheese ball and crackers! What the Hell people! Are you serious?!?!?! Had I known this I would have eaten before we left the house! My poor baby looked at me and said "Mama I dont want that! I want food!" And I hope that B**** Heard that. Because I told my BF I will never attend a holiday with his family again. This has always been how it is and I am so sick and tired of it I can't stand it! Even Christmas day when we had to go over there early and she said she would have lunch ready no later than 1 and we ate at 230! Oh hell no! She got mad at me because I didn't eat much. Well that was because I promised my Grandmother I would be at her house at 5 to eat dinner at 530-6. And dang it I was going hungry no matter what. I wasn't going to spoil my appetite because they cant get it together. Please tell me if you would stop spending holidays with them too? Just curious
