My weekend from hell...began two weeks prior to Thanksgiving when my sis called and invited my daughter & I to spend Thanksgiving weekend with her and her daughter and have turkey dinner at her house with my brother's family also.
It is a six hour drive (at rapid speed with no stops) and I told her we would leave noonish Thanksgiving day and start her way - I knew I would be too tired after work on Wednesday and didn't want to chance the long drive in the dark while tired.
We got off earlier Thursday than I had planned and left in an ice storm for sis' house. After 3 hours the snow stopped and it was just COLD. My brother called to wish us a happy turkey day and I told him we would be in sooner than anticipated and I needed directions to sis' house. He said, "she's gone to XYZ City for dinner." I said, " I thought we were doing this at sister's house?" He said, "no, just come to my place, we cooked". Fourtunately, my brother made room for us and we were very comfortable and there was certainly plenty of food, but they really weren't expecting additional guests for an overnight stay. We escaped the next day - late. I am furious with my selfish, self-centered sister, but what else is new?
I saw my sister late Friday afternoon, just before we left. I said, "I thought we were doing this at your house and you invited me to stay with you." She said, "No, I went to bf's house for dinner and came back late last night." I never got an apology or a thank you for coming or whatever!!! So I basically spent 12 hours on the road to spend 24 hours with my dysfunctional family.
Someone dared ask me what I was doing for Christmas?
