This is a bit long so my apologies…
My father is in town this weekend and I honestly dont want to see him. My sister asked me to come out tonight to dinner with her, her kids, and my father and I explained I had a prior engagement to go to and she got all pissy. I dont feel like I should spend time with a person I have no relationship with (meaning my father). Not to mention once he finds out about my SO (I refuse to hide him) he will freak. My family is 100% jewish and my SO is half syrian (greek orthodox) and half italian (catholic). I know if that conversation comes up I am going to say things and it will end up in a very very big confrontation. Why the heck is she being so pissy when she knows how things are.. uggggh!
A small back story.. my parents got divorced when I was 13 months old.. I have had nor do I have a relationship with my father except for a $200 check for my birthday and flowers for v-day. When I had my almost- fatal car accident he came to the hospital for about an hour.. stayed in my hotel room while I slept and he was on his laptop the entire time. Then he went out to dinner with my sister and left.
Sorry ladies I just needed to vent. I am ready for the fall out once I get engaged from my extended family, but honestly I dont feel like I need my fathers approval or opinion. I have already told my mom I planned on asking my step dad if he and my mom would walk me down the aisle (once things are official) as he has been more of a dad figure to me since he married my mom in 2006 then my father has my entire life.
