Hi all GNetters
I am in a bit of a dilemma.
Last Monday I had a fallout with my sister's husband, she has been with him over 35 years. He can be a rude man, if you say something he doesn't agree with he will pull faces and show that he is not interested.
We do have a laugh and tease each other though and normally I can ignore him when he has this head on.
Both my daughters and grandchildren live in oz and the U.S, and I miss them dreadfully. I went to the U.S to visit my eldest daughter and she and my 25 year old grandson took me to San Francisco, my grandson had his birthday with his mum and me, it was wonderful.
He told his mum it was the best birthday he had, when I told this to my sister and BIL he started to comment in how strange it was for a 25 year old to want to spend time with his mum and nan and I found myself justifying it, and then he started on about why my GS still lives at home in California, again I started to explain why and how he has thousands in the bank and is saving for his own place, it is very expensive over there
He started to pull a face and I lost it and I am sorry to say, I wasn't thinking on my feet and really was angry. My sister tried to calm me down, but there was no stopping me and I told them I didn't want to go there for Xmas day.
My sister agreed he was rude and out of order and he says things to her that make her cross and she is quite mild mannered. He has always been known for being rude.
Anyway my sister now tells me he doesn't want me at there house Xmas day!!! And that I over reacted. But me And her are ok.
I don't see my children very often and when I do see them I want to share it with family. But they are not interested as all their family live around them.
I am upset and now it will be just me and my husband over Xmas.
I appreciate I may have over reacted, but I am tired of feeling that my family don't exist, because they live abroad.
