It is going to be a bitter sweet holiday season.

As some of you ladies know - My husband and I had a huge blowout with his parents and have decided for right now that we do not want to talk to them, maybe not for a long while either.

But as the holiday season is coming I have joy and sadness.

The joy is that we will not have to rush each dinner to be at the next and we will not have to deal with the drama of his mother being grumpy and drunk on the holidays!

The sadness is that it is family. And it is completely against everything I know to not be with them. However, they are just not deserving right now.

I am however very glad that Donovin is young enough to not notice that they are missing this year. Hopefully, If they decide that they want to change how they treat us then next year they will be around. We will see!

I know how you feel that small pulling feeling that you should still talk to them they are family, but sometimes, Im am not sure what happened with you, but sometimes you have to set boundries and kind of train people how to treat you, if you let ppl do and say what they want they will never learn...Good luck and I hope that with time things will work out for you!!

I hope you have a great Christmas. Hopefully being without you over the holidays will be the wake-up call they need. Hugs!
