Comments: over.

Don't feel bad, I haven't even spoken to the extended paternal side of my family since November of 1999.

Not going to either. Not with the way the goddamn vultures picked at and fought over the almost nothing my Grandmother had before she even passed fully away.

As far as I'm concerned, I belong to a separate, unrelated family with the same last name.

They've never even seen Youngerspawn.

Screw them.

Tough luck with the family. I hope the rest of your holidays go better.

My In-Laws reside in Western New York.

I reside in Ark-souri.

The chances of them driving 32 hours for one lousy dinner is about zero.

Thank Gawd. I feel your pain

I so feel your pain ... the dictionary has a picture of my family beside the word dysfunctional.

This year we used the excuse that the dogs were sick and we had to stay home ... to enjoy the already planned quite dinner at home with just the two of us and the dogs.

Gotta love those dogs, they are the best excuse we have now.

I feel for ya, dude.

Some of my in-laws (friggin' bitches and hypocrates, the lot of 'em) wanted all of us to get together every year for Christmas. My blurted, "Oh God!" sort of nixed that for us.

Not anywhere near as bad as your situation, but still...

Thank God for family.... and for the distance between us!
