I haven't written much on here about Rich's brother because I felt I needed to keep some boundaries when it came to his family. Not to mention I don't have a great track record with my own family, so I didn't think it was fair to complain about his.
But right now I am too fucking mad and upset to stay quiet.
Rich received this email from his brother this afternoon:
Still working out plans for Thanksgiving because Lin is still not feeling great. We will be keeping small this year. All we are going to do it the Turkey and everyone else will need to do the rest. I am going to ask you to make sure you bring stuff to occupy Noah so he is not running around. Will talk menu and Mom later.
WTF am I supposed to say to this?
They lied to us about the Jewish holidays in September and told us that they were not doing dinner because Lin hurt her back. They even told Rich's mom this. Well, I know for a fact that they had eight people at their house for dinner that night.
Honestly, it's a relief to not have to go there. We only go because of Rich's mom and how important family is to her.
What is upsetting to me is that we have told them about everything we are going through with Noah and just like my parents they think all Noah needs is a good spanking.
I have no idea where to go with this right now.
