- Wedding: October 2011
Um, I’m pretty sure I posted this before, about Easter. But anyways, it happens every freaking holiday. So, here we go again.
My mom and dad are divorced. They live in the same town (but about 45 minutes from each other). My dad is remarried. My mom is remarried but separating, and she still lives with my step dad. I have an older full brother, and a sister who is 19 from my mom’s second marriage.
This year, FH decided to go to my hometown for Thanksgiving, and stay in our town (where his family also is) for Christmas. So, that means on Thanksgiving I need to spend time with both my Dad and my Mom.
HOWEVER! Conveniently enough, they have both decided to eat Thanksgiving dinner at the same time. One is eating at 1pm, one is eating at 2pm. And both parents want me to come eat with them.
i would like to see both of them, but I’m either spending the morning with my mom, eating at one and then rushing over to my dad’s and getting there late and not being hungry…or I am choosing one over the other, and no one is happy. Actually, no one is ever happy. So I’m screwed no matter what I decide.
Plus, I feel like I cant leave my poor sis with my mom and her dad (my step dad) bc they hate each other, and it will be weird and awkward with just the three of them!
I mean, seriously??? This shit has gone on since they got divorced when I was in first grade! Is it too much to ask that they do a little coordinating??? My mom and dad don’t HATE each other. Is a simple email too much to ask for?
Anyone else have stupid divorced parents who make holidays miserable?
(p.s. this post, while a rant, is striving for a drama-free existence! hooray!)
