So hears my question, my feelings were very hurt. Both my sisters and my Mom pretty much avoided my invitation, outright, even plotting another dinner behind my back..at the same time i was expecting them. around the time i had invited my younger sister..she had asked if i would be coming to her house for christmas dinner. I graciously agreed..even though she lives in a very small house and can barely handle more than 4 dinner guests, I felt it was the right thing to do. She doesnt have any kids ..and im the only sister whom has 2. After being treated this way by my own family, i got to thinking that her house is the last place i feel i want to go for christmas dinner especially after the way i was treated. My husband says im making a big deal out of nothing but i dont agree. My thought was to plan x-mas dinner in advance at my home..and invite both families openly (knowing my half wont show;( Just to avoid a conflict with my sister's dinner) Has anyone ever encountered this kind of a situation? And how did you handle it? Its pretty bad when your own family behaves this way;(
Thanks For your Help!!!!!
