I know it has been a long time since I have written but my life has gone thru many changes since I wrote last. Mainly, I started working nights and watching my kids during the day so that my family could stay financially afloat by no longer paying childcare. But that is a different subject for different day. Today it is Turkey Rant time.
My wife and I have decided to spend TG apart b/c she will no longer stay with my parents when I visit them (they live 8 hours away). This is b/c of the way my parents treat me – which my wife is convinced led to my breakdown. My sister will probably be there. She is THE drama queen, go ahead wiki “Drama Queen” here picture is there I swear, has officially disowned me and is now going around telling friends she and I are “estranged.” She called me to give me s*** two of three months ago. My wife got on the line and called her a F***'in B****. I am glad to go back to my hometown b/c recently, a very very very close friend has been diagnosed with Stage I Kidney Cancer and though it is in remission it is cancer and even though he has put a brave face on it I want him to spend some time with me and my kids. But spending one minute with family will be my undoing if I let it.
I am working up some coping skills like spending as little time with them as possible. I can use the excuse of showing my kids the local sights like Niagara Falls and maybe bringing my parents along. The kids can be a buffer. Well thanks for listening I am trying to write more and listen more – It always helps!!!
