    @Honey, that’s a lot to deal with. I don’t have anything to add that hasn’t already been said but we’re all here for you. If you ever need an escape from where you are in CA, you can pop over to my little island and hang out. <3

    My mom just told me that my cousin, who has 2 small daughters, is hosting a big family thanksgiving deal. His mom - who was pissed with me not attending my dad's funeral and basically said I could replace P but not my dad - is annoyed with my mom for considering not going.

    What else is there to say?

    Well, I know where she can put her Thanksgiving.

    I’m very sorry her behavior’s made a hard time worse.

    I appreciate that my family gives me so much material for this thread /s.

    Based on my mom's texts and calls to me, my brother is super pissy that I still haven't met my SIL or nephew.
    1) He has never ever made the effort to come visit me through the years. Like ever. In fact, the one time we were in the same state in the last 5 years, he "spontaneously" decided to go camping a 5hr drive in the opposite direction.
    2) I don't know how many more ways I can say, "PANDEMIC. Your wife and kid matter way less to me than my husband," without actually saying it.

    Your brother’s being a brat, end of story. Capitulating to that guilt isn’t going to do you much good if you or your husband catch covid.
