70% of my holidays were me banging my head against the wall to keep me from going completely insane. I did have a few nice moments though. My Chanukah dinner was nice, nobody pissed anyone off that I know of. The Xmas party at SILs was nice too, in fact it was particularly nice without all the kids (shhh donâ€™t tell her I said that). Even better was watching episodes of Weeds by myself and finishing off season 5 of Dexter with Manly Man, but more on that later.
I nearly took off MILs head in a series of fights. Before the series of fights we were getting along great. Sheâ€™s great to talk to when itâ€™s just talking. Sheâ€™s an easy person to talk to, problem is when you decide to be honest with her when itâ€™s something she doesnâ€™t want to hear, it doesnâ€™t go so well. It may not be a good idea to tell your MIL she acts like a child and that her sons deserve a better mother. Whoops.
See: I canâ€™t keep my big mouth shut.
Then was Xmas eve which involves going out for Chinese food with my family and seeing a movie. Instead this year my dad chose to make a spectacle of my brother showing up a 1/2 hour late and I decided to have a nervous breakdown and leave. I know that doesnâ€™t exactly seem fun but it is, trust me. Or at least it was probably entertaining to the family at the table next to us.
See: I really canâ€™t keep my big mouth shut.
But itâ€™s over. Also despite my dad trying to be his usual stubborn self he wanted to make the night up to us and we had a re-do last night. We got Chinese food and saw Up in the Air (review to come tomorrow). I guess there are Xmas miracles..my dad swallowing his pride.
