I absolutely HATE most of my husband's family
I am just irritated beyond belief.
We rent a modest 3 bedroom house. We've been here since August (we used to live in a 2 bedroom townhome).
Now that we live in this house, which has an averaged sized living room and huge backyard (which I love). My husband's family think that this is the place where they can hold all their social gatherings! Now I understand, that we have the "biggest" place. They all live in apartments or live with other family and are just renting a room. However, I don't understand how this means that my house has become freaking Chuck E. Cheese and you just assume you can hold all your birthday parties and social events here without a second thought!!
My husband's aunt had her birthday party here. My husband's cousin decided to throw a baby shower AND a family reunion here. AND NOW I find out that my husband's other aunt is spreading the word that she's going to have her 50th birthday HERE! She doesn't even ASK first, she is just planning it already!
My husband is a big pushover and doesn't know how to say no. Even though I will say no, they will ask him. He will feel trapped (because they will BULLY him) and say yes. They will make him feel guilty, with the "oh we don't have a big house" oh "we don't have money to rent a place" blah blah blah. I'M SORRY BUT THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS! I feel like this isn't our house. They just come here and take over. And now they aren't even ASKING they are just inviting people to our house about a party we don't even know about! I'm sick of it.
Oh and the part that pisses me off the most is that when we threw a birthday party for my 2 year old last week, HALF OF THEM DIDN'T EVEN COME! So it's not like they care about us! But when the aunties throw a party EVERYONE comes. It just makes me so angry. I can't even explain it.
So that's my vent. Yes I'm mad. Yes I'm bitter. They know I hate them being here (I just stay in my room during the parties) but they don't even take that as a sign. Oh and yes, I've told them to their faces MY HOUSE IS NOT FREAKING CHUCK E. CHEESE! They still don't get the message. UGH!
