My aunt is hosting the Thanksgiving festivities this year and I’m so not looking forward to it. Neither is Fiance. My mom always hosts and Fiance and I originally planned to go up Wednesday and come home Saturday night. But when we found out aunt was hosting, we changed our plans to going up Thursday in time for dinner and leaving Friday after a quick post-Black Friday nap.
She is not a nice person, my aunt. She’s physically grabbed me before (to pull me back towards her during a heated argument where I was trying to walk away) and threatened to kill Fiance. She says the death threat was just her way of being a good aunt (wtf?) and that she hates that I can’t get over it (it happened nearly two years ago and she’s the only one who still brings it up during family gatherings).
My grandmother and my mom have said that the aunt is jealous of the way I’ve turned out (graduated from college, solid career, loving relationship, engaged, etc.) because her daughters haven’t fulfilled the aunt’s dreams for them. My cousins never went to college, one is divorced and pregnant by a man who has two kids by two other women, the other has no money and no career.
It all just makes me want to stay home and cook a little turkey and snuggle up on the couch with Fiance and watch football all day! lol, anyone else a bit anxious about the holidays and family time?
