I'm back on a med again.
DGS still working 3 jobs?
I have some answers but not all.
She doesn't have the time to take all those pics now that she has a house to run and a child to care for without your extra hands.
I want you to think about this and I might be off but.......How long has it been since GDIL spent time with her DD? When was the last time her DD was there? Has the dad ever come up there before? Have S and his sister ever spent a holiday together? Now that you have that in your head add that the Dad is going to be there to and are they going to leave him out at Christmas? I don't thnk so, at least I wouldn't be able to.
This might be why they are doing what they are planning to do. Not to leave you out but just to make this more about their little family group. This could be to
Colleen, leaving you alone at xmas just isn't right. Xmas is for family & you are T's family. Whats wrong w/the boy? As for your dd she never came around till late on xmas if I remember correctly also T can make sure she knows he doesn't want to see her at xmas & to not ruin your day to visit later. Sorry but that wife of his is just a B1!(%. They didn't go anywhere last yr. did they? You need to sit him down & explain to him that he's hurtingm your feelings, he's so wrapped up in his little family he's forgetting the big picture & you've been by his side forever. No you don't want to intrude on his marriage but at times like xmas it hurts you to not be w/him & his family. He does need to know & then he can do what he wants w/the info.
If they insist on being alone as a family then go to Arizona. Cutting you out because of your dd is just not fair to you. You protected him all these yrs. & now its about time he showed how much he appreciates all you did for him. He's a grown man w/a kid of his own he should understand.
Sorry, I just don't trust her, she's trying to separate him from everyone he knew before so he only has her. Not good & you need to talk w/him. Don't say one unkind word about gdil just let him know how you feel.
They could invite YOU over for Xmas Day.
I just lost
Colleen I like Frans solution to xmas you go to there place. I'm sure they would have room for you. Why would they want to be alone at some resort? Xmas is family & traditions & why would they not want to be w/family (you) at xmas, especially the babies 1st xmas?
I wouldn't be rushing to buy the ticket to Arizona before you discuss xmas w/T not w/gdil. Btw, when you see the price of tickets around the holidays you will drop. besides not wanting to ship all Niks presents from Santa up here from FL it was just to darn expensive to fly then & the weather was too unreliable to drive.
Nik & I watched that movie last weekend. She cried & cried when he died then the dog just sits there & at the end she was sobbing. Its getting to the point I can't watch anything w/that girl anymore.
I just finished reading the book Unlocked by Karen Kingsbury & I was sitting on the couch crying at one point. I read all her books I like her writing but I didn't buy this one I got it from the libray & I think its one Nik might like to read so I'll pick it up when I see it cheap somewhere.
