This gave me a good belly laugh today. So DH’s stepmom is, shall we say, delightfully eccentric. We’ve had our ups and downs with her, but things have been going smoothly as of late. This upcoming weekend is Thanksgiving in the Great White North. DH and I have DH’s son this weekend for the holiday. DH’s stepmom and dad invited my stepson to Thanksgiving dinner at their place. Not us. Just him (he’s 5). Oookay. Fine. It actually worked out well because we have a function to attend that night so it saves us looking for a babysitter or him having a late night if he comes with us.
Today I get an email from DH’s stepmom saying that she’s had a couple cancellations from her dinner guests so would we like to join? Wow. B-list for Thanksgiving dinner. Awesome. Even if we didn’t have anywhere to go, I think I’d be “washing my hair” just to get out of that uncomfortable situation. LOL!
I should also note that a few years ago we went to a holiday dinner with them, there wasn’t enough room at the table for us, so DH and I ate on tv tables in the livingroom and got whatever food was leftover after everyone at the table had taken what they wanted. They ran out of food. Seriously.
Ahhh family. You are so funny and quirky. You make me laugh to no end.

Yeah, I think I’d be “washing my hair” as well 🙂

Wow! Yeah I wouldnt be going either. I would probably politely, but also passive aggressively say
“Thanks for the invite, but the last event we seemed to be 2 people too many for the food cooked so we don’t want to put that strain on you for the holiday”

I know huh?! And she’s seriously oblivious that this whole situation *might* be perceived as rude. There’s nothing to do but laugh!!!
