My Hisband and I made up our minds that Thanksgicing will be with my family in town. It works better with my Husbands Black Friday work schedule and my local charity run and work. The Charity run is a tradition that we want to make for ourselves as a couple As we’ll. My husbands parents will get Christmas and Easter. We don’t want to drive back and fourth splitting each holiday up because it’s hard to do with our schedules and we hardly get any time to just us and it gives us the time we need. However my MIL is doing her best to guilt us and is being very passive aggressive. She will say things like:
“Welll, Thanksgiving is so important to Grandma and we don’t know how much longer she will be with us”
“Well, I just don’t see why (my husband) can’t spend thanksgiving morning with us and be back to you and your family at night.”
I have an elderly grand parent who I’m not seeing because she wanted Christmas so badly because she refuses to have it on a earlier/later date, as I’m doing with my parents. I also have a ill father so the same could be said about my grandpa and dad when she pulls the grandma card on me. I gave her Christmas because she voiced it was so important and Easter because my family isn’t religious, yet she wants it all. I and my husband have made it clear but she will not shut up and kindly addressing we’ve made our minds up does nothing. How do I make it clear? Ah I about to yell at her it upsets me so much! She’s even driving 2 hours to sit down and try to get me to crack on thanksgiving.
