Ouch! that all sucks! So sorry you’re Christmas took such a nose dive after what seemed like a good start. I’ve had my own share of family drama. It’s always so sad when you are in the midst of planning a special event, especially a wedding! Go buy some wine, make another lemon merengue pie, snuggle up with your fabulous man and count your blessings chicka! Watch that movie and just breath. Take a mental break from it all….. Iron out the kinks another day! I agree….. Always important to support your man especially when it comes to family. He’s the one you are sharing a life with.

PeachyMama:  so drunk-ass Brother-In-Law didn’t know his wife had their son in her possession (not in the bunkhouse with you), starts a fight with your Fiance and not ONE family member bothers to stand up for you guys or set Brother-In-Law straight? 

Ihope he woke up with a horrible hangover and feels like an asshole. And I’m kinda glad your family will have to deal with hungover, jerk Brother-In-Law too. They kind of deserve it. I’d NEVER let family drive home at 1am. Dangerous and wrong.

Happy Holidays!

That sounds awful. I am so sorry. People should have stuck up for you. People need to control themselves while drinking. I am glad your babe was man enough to just leave. I would have done the same!

PeachyMama:  I’m sorry you had to deal with that. It would piss me off too. some people have anger problems and blow up over nothin.  Not long ago my brother got mad at me for nothing and started cussing at me. Like you I just left the situation. He later apologized. Hopefully the same will happen with you. At least you hace an amazing fiancé which I wouldn’t trade for anything.

“some people have anger problems and blow up over nothin.  Not long ago my brother got mad at me for nothing and started cussing at me. Like you I just left the situation”<br /><br /><br />

Oh my god this. My mother and brother started an argument on my birthday a few days ago….because i had gone into his room to admire the freshly falling snow (he has the best view of the whole town, its stunning, and hasnt snowed here for 3 years). Well my mother ran to him with this tittle tattle (i was only in there maybe 5 minutes) and he exploded. I left straight after and haven’t seen them or heard from them since. I can’t believe some people can be so petty and trivial. They ruined my birthday, I promise myself I will not be spending another of my birthdays with them.

It troubles me that feeling angry at people is making me an angry person in myself, though. So try to concentrate on your happy life and future and forget this. so not worth your tears and stress.

As someone whose sibling once spontaneously shouted death threats over the tv volume (really, just out of nowhere explodd) I feel you. Some people are assholes, and alcohol rarely makes the, better.

PeachyMama:  your Fiancé sounds like a great guy! I’m a big believer that sometimes unfortunate situations happen to reveal the true character of people. Your guy is a great guy but your Brother-In-Law is just an ass. If anything I feel sorry for your sister and I’m sure the altercation made her feel really bad. 

Maybe you and your sisters can do something special together before the wedding to spend some time with each other. I have 5 sisters and know how important they are to me and I don’t get to see them nearly as often as I’d like to.
