Just wondering if we are the only ones with nothing to do...AND family nearby?
My mom recently wrote off me and my little family completely (she is bipolar and I'm pretty sure has a narcissistic personality disorder going on too) - which means we are not invited to the normal family Thanksgiving that she hosts with my granpda, aunt and uncle, brother, sis-in-law, niece, etc (There is no issue with anyone but her). My dad goes to a friend's house for Thanksgiving and has since my parents split up 10 yrs ago. My husband's family lives in the midwest, and while we looked at flying there, it was $1200 per ticket...and there are 4 of us, so not financially an option. Finances are crazy tight right now for us.
I guess I am just feeling sorry for myself right now - my birthday is the day after Thanksgiving too - which we are also not celebrating because we have no $$ to do so. Trying so hard to focus on being thankful for the wonderful things we do have - 2 beautiful babies, warm home, etc - but the pity party rains on still.
Just feels so depressing this year and hearing everyone else's family plans. If you have nothing to do, what are you "doing"?
