My bil decided to have Christmas dinner w/out us. This is the first time in 25 years that we are not all at Christmas dinner for his parents. My mil is in congestive heart failure and the beginning stages of dementia. When my bil set the date we told him that a saturday date would not work since my dh is a saturday mailman. I guess that made no difference to him because he set the date for today and said it was just too had to switch it...mind you there are only 3 families.
I think my bil is stubborn and wouldn't change his mind because he didn't want to. He didn't even call us until wed. to say it was set for saturday....
Wh took our presents for his Mom and Dad and they did spend the day with us on Christmas....it is just so sad to think that you would want your way so much that you would exclude your own brother and his family.
I guess that is the way to end the year because you sure wouldn't want to start the year on that note.
We are doing fine and looking forward to 2008. I hope you have a safe and flourishing new year. God bless you all.
