I honestly had more fun off the strip on that old vegas street whose name i can't remember
New most annoying ad?
Z and I have been karaoking Frozen II songs. It so hard with tempo changes and not having them commited to memory yet.
Coolest part though: I found song a long videos and . she's reading them!!!
I know she can read, but this is just one more step putting everything together.
My parents didn't realize i could read until I was like 6.5 because I never knew it was noteworthy. They just assumed i was looking at pictures.
Went and worked out with my dad this morning. Forgot how great it feels and to know that I am bettering myself. May need to just pony up and join myself to make it a regular thing.
You don't have kids so you should be free to choose option "best for us". Selfless family sacrifice is for parental units.
Even with a kid: if going will add anger, stress, a confrontation, or bad for your health it may be best not to go.
It just causes undue guilt.
Efficiency. Attended neighbors holiday open house and another birthday and already home with a glass of scotch.* Now wishing I had stuffed some cookies in my coat pocket.
Highlight at open house was watching the neighbor, who was born in Japan, teach a high school exchange student from Spain and another from Chile how to make a California roll. Sushi school. The kid from Spain excelled at it. Passed the taste test to.
* Not forgoing wine, had some earlier but scotch sounded good considering how cold it is outside.
My sister had to go to her boyfriend's grandparents house for Thanksgiving because our family isn't as important as theirs. His grandma actually apologized to my mom a week prior for my sister not being able to be there.
This is how Thanksgiving works there: His grandma makes all the food, including like 10 pies. You can't bring your own dish because that would be telling her that her's isn't good enough. Everyone sits down at the table, you pass each item around until everyone has filled their plate, then you start eating. Then after dinner, everyone gathers in another room, sits and talks about the weather and looks at the black Friday ads for 2-3 hours, no TV, maybe some board games. Then finally dessert.
Christmas there is also something else.
We all make our choices in life and learn to live with them. As much as it pains you, remember that it is your daughter’s life, not yours. She knows what she means to you, and so do you. You don’t have to agree, but you can choose to accept it.
Just clarifying that it is his sister not daughter. I do believe chaser is not a father.
Each couple needs to come to their own compromise. My side has always been the fairly flexible one. My in-laws were mostly the opposite. Everything revolves around my Wife’s brothers schedule at first. Over time my wife realized that it was a pain and we do nearly nothing with her brother. With kids, we could easily be grandparents in 5-10 years and that will change things more.
Explain that not everyone can always make it on a specific date. If you do mention that you only have X amount of time due to something else, such as a company work party or so. That makes the time busy and shuts down a lot of complaining time.
Another option is to have the gf (in my family I deal with the BC family, wife deals with the Mrs BC family so it doesn’t seem like meddling in-laws) explain that she is tired of whatever is bothering you two and if they can’t avoid that then you will just have a small private Christmas.
Oops, sorry about that. My thoughts are still the same though.
Come in to run sound system for church Christmas program. Have a kid running stuff and think, this will be easy. Then another kid comes up and hands me a flash drive and says this has everything you need. Guess I have another job, not sure what I’m even dealing with, gonna be fun.
I should have included how her boyfriend's family does holidays and how we do them are day and night. Theirs are super formal and ours are super laid back. It doesn't matter how we do things, all that matters is that we're together. I don't care that she goes over there for holidays. They show up later, eat again, no big deal.
Her boyfriend is the oldest grandchild, and first one to date someone, and I think having 2 holidays to go to each time is new for them, so if he missed out on dinner there with the intention of showing up later, it's the end of the world.
My sister told me a story about how a kid at Grinnell was asking a question in class or something, and used the the word 'straightforward', and it caused everyone to freak out.
Does she go to grinnell? Because there are idiots everywhere, but that sounds like one of those almost "too good to be true" stories
No, she was told by one of her teammates who works with someone who went there. Yeah I agree.
