I'll tell if you will, I think my husband's family has the worst Thanksgivings.........yours?
I know it isn't nice but after 20 plus years I am convinced my husband's family has the worst Thanksgivings in the world and yet we continue to go year after year. Hostess is my sister in law, dirtiest, most fur filled house in the world, bad attitude, sailor level curser and hates her husband. She always wants to "make money" off of hosting so I bring all the potatoes, wine, butter, coffee, milk, water, rolls, cranberries, vegetables, salad, napkins, sparkling cider, whipped cream, half and half and whatever else. She has the well to do aunt buy a free range turkey for her to cook but is so afraid of undercooked turkey that we have turkey char. She always serves as little as possible so she can have the leftovers for her family (1 kid and they are financially well off). We have to go every year, tried to break away a few times and it was awful! Everyone bitched all year about how bad it was without us (no food for starters I would guess) and the whole family lives in the same town as we do.
If I didn't laugh I would cry. Our tradition is to go to the mess and then I do "Thanksgiving Again" the SAturday after Thanksgiving so my kids can actually enjoy all the food, all they want and have a lovely Thanksgiving they are comfortable inviting friends to attend.
Good news though, this is the last year! (no really). My son is off to college next fall and I have already told everyone that I will be having Thanksgiving at our home for him and anyone else who wants to come. Probably will eventually end up with all the rude people at my house but it's got to be better than this mess!
So,does anyone else have crazy Thanksgivings because they are being nice to hubbies clan?
