About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    Tick Tock You Don't Stop
    Let the drama continue.

    For those that have been keeping up with the Christmas Aunt saga...it doesn't end at my last post. After the initial message on the machine I called her back and told her that it wasn't a big deal. That I thought that having Christmas at my house would be easier (especially for me with the kids) but that we could/would come to her house and to let me know when and what to bring. I totally expected her to call me back saying that "Dinner is at one..blah blah blah". Boy was I wrong.

    The next morning she called and left another message on my answering machine stating again that she already had the food and people were planning on coming to her house like they had the last 15 years. She would send the kids' presents with my Mom. She wanted her Dad at her house for Christmas. Sounds like she really wants me there huh?

    I guess I am a glutton for punishment. I called and cried to my Mom for awhile last night and asked her to find out what Aunt's problem is since I am a non-confrontational chicken. Mom thinks that I need to just show up if nothing else but spite. Part of me wants to. Who does she think she is to basically tell me that I can't spend Christmas with my family. But the other part of me (and my gut instinct too) tells me that I don't need to waste my time and be somewhere that I am obviously NOT wanted. Of course, Mom calls and leaves her a message telling her that she really hurt my feelings and that she needs to think about what she wants and if she can be nice about the situation she needs to call me, but if not then don't bother. I don't know about you, but I can pretty much guess where that will go.

    I hate feeling like this. What the hell have I really done to her? All that she has a "problem" with was between my grandparents and me. It has absolutely nothing to do with her. I know I shouldn't give her the power, but she makes me feel like there is something wrong with me. My family here in the Carolinas is small and to not see them is breaking my heart. I can't remember a time that I didn't get to spend it with family. I know that I have a family of my own now, but they are my family too. Rock and a hard place much?

    I still haven't decided what I am going to do. I probably won't until Christmas morning. I pretty much have decided that if she doesn't call me back (and play nice) then I WON'T be going over there. I also know that next year I will not be going over there. We started having Christmas at her house because she had small children. Her kids are now in high school. So, based upon that criteria, it's my turn now. If she doesn't want to come then fine.

    I so sound like a spoiled brat huh? Am I being ridiculous? What would you do? (ok, ERin I already know what you would do ;) )

    I agree with Erin... don't go where you're not wanted. Have a good day surrounded by those you love and those who love you, and don't worry about anyone else.

    I swear some people just do stuff to get a reaction. LOL

    I'm a non-confrontational person too, so I feel your pain. Sorry about such a crappy situation. :(

    I'm just catching up, read your last three posts. DON'T GO! Have your mom and Paw-Paw over to your house separately.

    You know my sister and I dont' speak. So my mom is going to her house for the morning and my house for the evening. So she sees everyone and we (HP and I)don't get our Christmas ruined by having to see someone who hates us.

    Life is too short to spend it with hateful people.

    I agree and disagree sort of. We have some issues this year to. My father is very very negative towards his son-in-laws and my sister's hubby finally stood up to him this fall - well it has been bad ever since. My sister had a baby 2 weeks ago, her first and she is the baby of the family. He lives 2 blocks from the hospital and refused to come visit her! Anyway, my hubby is sick of the way he and the others are treated so he decided this year we would have Christmas at our house, and whoever wants to come can come. If they don't, well to bad - and if they try to cause problems, it's our house so we can ask them to leave, lol.

    So, while I never like being places I'm not wanted - I know there are some members of this family would have more fun chopping off a leg then coming to my house - but it sounds so far like all of them are coming anyway and will try to play nice, cause, well, we're still family even at our worst.

    I lost a brother 6 years ago in a car accident so I can tell you without a moments hesitation that life is to short to spend hating your family no matter how wrong they may be. You may have a family member that is driving you nuts this year or maybe for years already - but for all you know, this may be your last Christmas with them.
