Christmas was always awesome, but that was on account of my family making it a huge deal. Now that we don't associate with them we're down to just my fiancee's,
You don't associate with your family?!
Nah, had a big falling out with my parents back in...lessee...March? I feel like I mentioned it here at some point. Basically, I've never gotten along with my mom, and she wasn't getting along with the (then) girlfriend and (now) fiance. Dad has Mom's back, so unfortunately he's a casualty of war even though I do love him. His choice.
I speak to my brother once every couple of months or so. We've never talked often, so I guess you wouldn't say that we're close, but when we do speak we joke and rip on each other like we're best friends, so I'd say it's all fine on that front.
It's a bummer, but it's the way it had to be, so I've made my peace with it and moved along mentally. Edited, Nov 22nd 2011 4:29pm by Eske
