So , for the second year in a row I am hosting Thanksgiving. It will be my MIL, FIL , friend from out of state, mom and ...my brother in law and his GF... now let me fill you in on my brother in law.. he is the older brother ( 32 , DH is 30 ).. he hasn't held a steady job for more then 9 months since he was 18 ( due to anxiety and panic disorder , but when it comes to having no responsibility he's FINE ).. lived with his parents up until this past august ( had never lived on his own ).. my DH owns his own business and has hired and fired his brother on multiple occasions. He only hires him when my inlaw ask him to. Because , you see, they pay his bills when he needs it instead of making him be a big boy.. he recently had an anxiety episode and didn't show to work for 3 days ( oh but magically we found out he was out with his GF and totally fine ) anyway he pretty much quit and is losing his apartment next month.. but doesn't bother him b/c mommy and daddy will pay his bills..mind you a few years ago we almost lost our house b/c business was slow and they offered us no help..( BTW we are doing exceptionally well now :) )... anyway, his GF... she's ten years younger then he is..has an 18 month old...has a foul a** mouth..doesn't work ( b/c she lives at home with her mom and dad and is a "sahm".. ) her parents said they will pay for her living expenc as long as she takes college classes ( she take 2 online a week that my BIL pretty much does for her )..she is obsessed with her baby daddy drama and his other 3 baby mamas..she puts all her business on FB..and is a complete know it all with NO filter....ANYWAY! She doesn't like me or DH OR my inlaws b/c we don't " talk to her and we are fake " ( that's b/c she is literally GLUED to her phone and doesn't interact ..her life is FB and her friends. While her DD runs around and my BIL chases her )... anyway BIL has been ignoring our texts and calls since he "quit".. and now he just texts me and says " can Saras dad come to thanksgiving?..her mom and other fam have an out of state emergency and we don't want to leave him alone"... my inital thought " tell your GF to stay home with her dad ( they've only been together since Feb and she makes no effort to be a part of this fam ) but if I don't say yes them my BIL won't come b/c he cares more about himself and who he's dating at the time then about his family. ( my DH is the one who always does stuff for his parents and his brother can't even mow the lawn for his 64 and 70 yr old parents )..anyway this is akward to me... do I say yes , sure come on over?? Or do I say no akward !...????? I have a big heart and can't say no..but I can't stand her !!
