Big sister to the rescue
Previously, I blogged about my fatigue with the situation that my divorced parents put my family in. Well, I called my big sister (left) and told her how I felt. In true big sister fashion she stepped in to fix it.
First, she acknowledged that she totally forgot to invite my dad to her house for Thanksgiving. She said it was because he was married for 16 years and we either ate with them or dropped over their house. Now that he's been single again for 4 years, she was out of the habit of considering him on the holidays. She called him the next day and apologized (of course my dad called me to report this development) and invited him over for Christmas brunch and told him that my family and I would be staying with her. And he agreed that that would be best and he'll bring the salmon croquets! He sound soooo happy!
Then, she called my mom and broke the news to her. My mom is a whole 'nother kinda special (being respectful here), but she said she "figured" we would stay with my sister. Then my sister broke the news about my dad coming on Christmas and she said she was fine.
There it is! Peace was just a phone call away. I'm going to start having my sister take care of all my problems (financial, marital, etc) . That's what big sisters do right?
