Walton's And Osbourne's

Most of my family are wonderful people, a mixture of the Walton's and the Osbourne's.

Then there are the others...

Two cougars, a histrionic prone, serial home wrecker; a more often than not pharmaceutically intoxicated momma's boy and a hypocritical pretentious princess with nothing to be pretentious about.

But that is okay. They do not like me, either.

I would say that we agree disagree but they would disagree about agreeing.
And another disagreement would ensue.

I don't think you are alone in your feelings about your relatives, I recognize a few of mine in there! :-)

hahaa, the picture you included with the quote on it just made my day. I really need a t-shirt with that on it, it would be perfect! No matter how far you come, there's always that in the back of everything it seems like. =/

Get in line. Sounds like your family is just as typical as the next family these days. Heck, I think ALL families are nutty. Some do less to hide it than others is all.<br />

Enjoy them while you can!

I guess I've been extra lucky in the 'Family Christmas Feud' area. I guess with all types of feuding going on at various times with various and changing family members, I just never thought about that one. But I do know that 'The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year' brings out 'The Worst Possible Emotions There Can Be' in everyone. My sympathies to all who suffer through this year after year after year. And my hat is off to those of you who prove that a good sense of humor can go a long way when facing another 'Fun With Relatives On Christmas'. What all of you need is a CD of "Twisted Christmas Carols (and other hilariously tasteless songs). I especially like the song, "Walking Around in Women's Underwear" sung to the tune "Winter Wonderland".

Love it :)

I love my family but need my space. Christmas day is the worst. If you have a blue with someone you will always regret it because it is usually someone you love. I try to prepare myself in advance not to react. The fish that does not 'bite' never gets 'caught'. It is also good to have an excuse ready for when you just can not stand any more and must get away. A plausible excuse gives you a way out without offending anyone but you must be ready and think about it in advance. My partner feels the same. We often agree on an escape plan before we go in. It is not good to avoid important things that need to be dealt with but the things that ruin family occasions very often are not really that important.

Obviously experience has taught you which are skirmishes and which are battles and have picked wisely. Good Job!!

Well Kids put on your Happy Freaking Faces & let's play pretend? That's life Everywhere ;) Welcome to Families are just F*cked up Some hide it well Some don't give a $h*t?

With husbands and boyfriends, I've been truthful about my family! They irritate me, some are very dysfunctional and some are very odd, some I like and some I don't, and some don't like me either so ba<x>sed on that, I don't expect everyone else to like them or tolerate them. A lot of women expect their husbands to put up with whatever their family does or says, but I am not one of those women! In fact, my current husband (15 years this time) thinks I should put up with things from his family that I don't from mine and just doesn't understand what the problem is (but he doesn't take up for me either so the problem is back in his court!). It always helps to hear that others think the same way about their families!

The holidays seem to bring out the worst in families. I just wrote a blog post about how to avoid family fights with humor. My own family disowned me 3 years ago, so I don't have to deal with any of it anymore.

When my Mom died there was a big blow-up not only with my step-family (not surprising to many) but a lot of my own family so the contact is few and far between. I'm an only child so I don't have siblings to fight with. My Dad has always seemed to prefer my stepmother's kids to me - and he's 700 miles away - so that part I don't have to deal with. My husband's parents are deceased and even though he has 2 half-brothers still alive, we always kind of keep to ourselves (still some things running deep regarding family land, etc.). Our holidays are pretty quiet anymore (we have had some major dysfunctional family arguments with his children and ex-wife on holidays before though); we visit neighbors that have known my husband since he was born and it works out well. The neighbors are great people and treat us better than family! I'll check your link!

Thank you and they are characters!!

That was really cute. I like the way you describe all the relatives with just a few words, I feel like I know how they act.
