Real Life Thanksgiving

I wish this was going to be one of those sappy blogs about how nice everything was how wonderful the holidays are but this is real life. So we went down to my Uncles and cousins house for Thanksgiving. We do this every year. This year I was very apprehensive about going for several reasons, first of all before we even leave the house Kacey makes the comment that my family cusses alot, I hate it and I don't know what to say but sorry, and second because its weird to have to visit with my dads new wife. She's nice its just weird, I can't explain it. And because every year we are the last ones there this year I made it a point to find out what time they started 1:00. We were almost there and at 12:45 they called on my cell asking when were going to be there. I got mad because once again were the last ones there and they wanted to start, so I told them to start with out us, they did. go figure! Anyway with in the first ten minutes I was regretting being there and my dad sealed that with some of the things he said. I won't dare tell you because I wouldn't want to subject you to that. Now I'm wishing I didn't subject my children to it either. Trust me that won't happen again. (It would be so nice if we could pick our parents, I'd keep my mom, you get the picture.) It was good to see some of my cousins and Aunts and Uncles but they all had to leave early anyway so whats the point. I think I will cook my own turkey in the next couple of days something I like to do anyway so I can have leftovers. That way I will have my own Thanksgiving what I should have done in the first place. There were a few good moments with us enjoying being on the farm.

My cousin Philip is one of the few that makes it worth going there for.

I'm sorry that you had such a bad trip. You will be blessed for trying. My uncle sat down, ate in less than 5 minutes and left without so much as a goodbye so that he could get back out to the casino! Luckily, he is the only rude one in the bunch! I think you have the right idea. Give your kids the memory you want them to have.

Oh, Elizabeth I'm so sorry. It's kinda' what you were expecting though. Next year hopefully will be better, maybe? Love ya.

Sorry Elizabeth! :( Families stink, at least take comfort in that yours aren't the only ones. Is it terrible that I am so glad we don't live near any of our family except my mom? Next year you are going out with us!!

I'm so sorry about your Thanksgiving...and I hope that you got to enjoy a little something of your own at home with your family, like you said. That sounds nice!
P.S. Thanks for keeping it real!
