I'm a little torn on this situation, I have 2 nieces and my son. Little background info, on christmas eve, me and my brother got into a fight reason being he was picking on my cousin's son and made him cry twice and he was upset with his wife and yelled at her in front of everybody, I had enough because his attitude towards everybody was horrible so I stood up for my SIL and she said nothing!!! Now it's been another 2 months that I haven't talked to them or seen my nieces. This has happened once before and I had enough the last time that I actually went to my brothers school (he's a teacher) to talk to him and work it out. Well my oldest niece just turned 2 yesterday and she had a birthday party that I was not invited too. Now my other niece is getting ready to have her 1st birthday, (yes they are barely 12 months apart!) and was invited too, but no one in my family will be able to make it cause they are having it an hour away when most of all the family is in this area but my SIL's parents, so I think she's doing it to conveient her parents, no biggie, but my parents won't be able to go cause that's the day they get back from vacation, my aunts and cousin's won't be able to go cause they are working that night, which leaves me. I could go but with the situation that they will not talk to me is keeping me from going. I want to go to see my niece on her birthday and to also show them up that I will go. But i know I'm going to be uncomfortable for another reason, my SIL's SIL use to be my best friend and married her brother, no biggie right? WRONG, she really screwed me over by lying and made up a lot of bullshit to my family and my SIL's family about things I said that I DID NOT say to make me look bad and make her look good! Which tore me and my family apart for a while! So now this party is coming up and I have no idea what to do.....Go to the party or not to go to the party!?
