Normally, I am not one to complain without seeing the bright side of things. However, I had a really rough week last week at work and I was hoping that maybe this could be a laid back weekend. Well, all I could think about was getting out of the house and doing something. We had no plans for Saturday and I thought we were going to just sit back and watch movies with the kids all weekend since it was cold. No such luck! I found myself aching to get out of the house. I then found out that my two best friends went shopping without me. Totally bummed me out but I am over it. It really hurt at the time though, especially since I needed an escape! I stayed home and cleaned...grrrr.... I did manage to teach my 7 & 8 yr old girls how to make dumplings for chicken and dumplings. I think they had fun. They wouldn't eat the dumplings though! Those picky little girls! LOL
So I also found out that my husband's ex-wife keeps getting invited to all of his aunt's activities. They had a wreath-making party. They don't invite me to anything! I feel very left out. I can't tell you all of the awful things that his ex does but she definitely makes life difficult! His aunts won't even take the time to get to know me! I am not a horrible person. The only thing that I have done is make their nephew very happy. So these aunts are all coming to our house for Christmas. THEY decided that Christmas was at our house this year. Funny thing is that they decided that when they were at my husband's ex-wife's house playing cards! What???!!! I don't get it! I don't even want these people at my house! However, I think that if I cancel Christmas I would be giving them another reason to talk about me behind my back. So what do I do? Smile and pretend nothing is wrong and just kill them with kindness? Or do I tell them how they make me feel? I am so torn. I know I should just be the sweet person that I am and just let them walk all over me but how much do I take? Am I really being the bigger person here? Is it bad to wish for a snow storm on December 25 so they won't come over? LOL
OK so I am done venting! I didn't get any exercise in since Wednesday. I know that it is my own fault so I am going to do better this week! Have a great day and sorry for the venting!
