I'll be needing all your good thoughts tomorrow as I head into our Family Christmas celebration. The two family members that made our holidays such a joke last year will be there. Baby Sis Beotch is hosting and Beotch Niece will be attending with that very special snowflake kid of hers.

I’ve not seen either of them in well over a year and haven’t spoken to either of them since the whole Chuck E. Cheesegate last December. My plan is simple – to walk in, greet the hostess and her family, hand the cards with checks over to the under 18 niece and nephews, then promptly find a seat somewhere and not move until it’s time to leave.

As to the niece, I plan to mumble a hello (no hugs – she gets NO hugs from me!) tap the snowflake on the melon hello, and return to my seat. Sis has made it crystal clear there will be no alcohol provided, so I may just have to be totin’ a little sumptin’, sumptin’ to get me through the two or so hours I plan to be there before my *cough, cough* - “next obligation”.

Which just happens to be the closest tavern.

Cover me, peeps! Will report back later.

Good luck ajsmom...sending you good thoughts of a conveniently pocket sized flask.

We've got your back. Don't forget to park where you can't be blocked in.

Strength, sister!

Oh, yes - must remember this!

Can you have someone call you to let you know you're 'late' for your next 'obligation'? Hasty goodbyes and you're out the door!

Good luck!

I too have my dysfunctional family Christmas tomorrow, and there is never alcohol, at least now they allow us to bring our own, they just won't provide it. I already have my flask of Bourbon ready.

I will think of you, as my Step-Mother-in-Law stress over the ham, and the Step-Brothers-in-law talk about their favorite weed is, and ponder why the youngest grandchild is developmentally delayed.....

I too plan to sit in a corner quietly, and hope that work needs me, or there is a honeybee swarm to capture or something to assist us out the door in a timely fashion.

Double tequila shot in the car before going in. That's how I cope with the dysfunctional side (Mom's) of the family.

AJ's Mom... You have all my support going in and getting out alive and in one piece.

You have way more strength than I... I don't even pretend that I want to see my family. They know I don't like them... and I am pretty sure they don't like me.

Hang Tough!!!

Sending mojo for coverage, may it act like an invisibility cloak to the people you want to avoid.

I hope it goes well! Nothing better than being enclosed in a room with difficult family members for an unknown amount of time. I did it for years, and I'm still standing. Mojo to you!

SisterMilkshake posted 12/28/2013 09:53 AM

Good luck today, ajsmom. Sending you mojo to have a day filled with peace and serenity.

hexed posted 12/28/2013 10:18 AM

Thinking of you today!

Send you strength, calm, and a BIIIIIIG glass of wine.

Just checking for an update. Hope all went well!

Hopefully you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and did not let the "bitches" ruin things for you......HUGS
