Good morning MW family. what's everyone's countdown? Mine is 227 days !!!guys Thanksgiving is coming and I don't know how I feel about spending it with my husbands sister,brother and his brothers wife. there's a lot of conflicts there. I personally don't like them that much because of arguments of the past. at the same time I feel bad for my hubby. what to do???

Our countdown is 8 yes 8! Mrs I said it! I'm always telling people how lucky we are that we all get along. I sent my daughter's in laws a card saying that after hearing in law stories I was so happy they were our in laws. Good luck - lala03  76.5 #84 6:01AM
8 days yay!! - yessy  226.9 #40 6:40AM
Our countdown is at 23!! I completely understand... my sister, brother and I have experienced similar drama with our Dad's wife and adult children and their kids in the past. So much so, it takes alot of effort (especially around the holidays) to put the past aside and enjoy our time with our father with them around. We do it for him, because we love him dearly. So, my only advice for now is, if it makes your hubs happy to see his family, make an effort for him and your kids, and try to enjoy yourself as much as you can. Sorry Yessy, I know it's tough. I am here if you need to talk. Text me anytime! πŸ‘Š - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 3:20AM
Thanks Maggie your such a good friend. I will take ur advice and everyone else's because I wouldn't want the same for me if I was in my hubbys shoes. Its just hard to see them always wishing bad on us and other people. His brothers seems like he is always competing to who has more this and that. And his wife a complete villain. I just can't stand her. His sister only appears when she needs money or a favor ughhhhh. But I'll do. it for him. - yessy  226.9 #40 4:16AM
I completely understand!! Just try to consider the source when things arent going well. You can't change their behavior, but you can change how you react to it and how you allow it to affect you. Just kill 'em with kindness! πŸ˜‰ Good luck!! - mrsincredible  1189.7 #5 5:38AM
Good morning , be the better person for your husbands sake . He will love you all the more for it . - skcanfield  563.4 #15 3:56AM
Thanks I'm so happy I could ask u guys for advice. - yessy  226.9 #40 4:17AM
9 days left. Remember the holiday and cherish the good moments. - augustinek  26.5 #146 3:59AM
I know and Christmas and New Years. - yessy  226.9 #40 4:18AM
Goodmorning yessy. I don't have a countdown yet but probably end of feb/beginning of march. Why does dealing with family have to be so hard? I have it in both sides and right now for my side I do it for my Mom and dad because I don't want to hurt them. I am having thanksgiving at my house for @ 50 people and my husband is ok with it because he knows I enjoy doing it. On his side he hasn't been close to his brothers since his mom passed away a couple of years ago she was our link with everyone I feel bad cuz I know she is not happy about that up there. So we both tolerate each others families and love and support each other because family is important. I hope everything turns out great for you. Have a great day. ✨✨✨✨✨✨ - mmddgp  948.8 #7 4:28AM
Thanks!! My hubby only has his brother and sister and of course his nieces and nephews but the rest is in Colombia. My whole family is here and they love my hubby dearly. I can't spend the holidays with my family because they live in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and I have no choice but to spend it with his. - yessy  226.9 #40 4:43AM
Aww. Make the best of it. The important thing is that you are with your husband a d kids. On the lighter side, this is my first holiday with my friends here on MW and I definatley will be checking in here for a dose of smiles every chance I get. Sorry you can't spend it with your family that has got to be hard. Have a great day yessy. Think happy Disney thoughts, I know you have great memories - mmddgp  948.8 #7 5:45AM
Good Morning Yessy! Our countdown is 367...SO CLOSE to the 1 year mark!!  Seems SO FAR away, but I know it will go quickly! - ncjal  288.4 #28 4:53AM
Good morning Yessy...i know what you are talling about..sometimes its hard to put stuff a side when some people have none you wrong..but if it will make you hubby happy and the kids..i would try my best to make it a good time...i always think about the kids - dxcmama  333.4 #26 5:32AM
And my countdown is 162!!!! - dxcmama  333.4 #26 5:33AM
Oh yeah that's the most important thing and his nieces and nephews all get along with my kids and its not their fault. - yessy  226.9 #40 5:44AM
Good morning!  I always try to find that silver lining! - DizneyGirl  935.8 #8 5:36AM
Good morning yessy! My countdowns now 139 days! Just try and focus on something positive and try and enjoy the holiday and the time with your family, I hope you have a great day! - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:52AM
I'm not sure of the exact number but it's September 12! I don't get along with my SIL either. She's done some pretty crappy stuff to me in the past but on holidays I just ignore her and hope she chokes on her turkey leg! Haha! Just kidding - girlonfire  54.1 #102 6:40AM
Lol.!!! That's funny! - yessy  226.9 #40 6:45AM
We are at 73 days. I get it about your husbands family. My in laws don't like me. Lets just say one of the many examples is the offered my hubby a new car of his choice and to pay for him to go back to school if he devorced me. But obviously he said no and in jan well be married 11 years. So I just think about my hubby when it comes to holidays. We go to their house and ill play nice for his sake. Hang in there - Schramke  664.4 #12 7:08AM
I'm mean were at 72 not 73 πŸ˜ƒ - Schramke  664.4 #12 7:19AM
WOW!!! its crazy how the in laws always have something bad to say about the wife's or a problem with something. - yessy  226.9 #40 7:28AM
3 years for us:( - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 7:52AM
390 and I feel ya there. Once I finally got old enough to not be pushed around. I stopped visiting the relatives on holidays. Way to much drama, someone always ended up fighting. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 8:00AM
Yup I keep my distance but as soon as I do one little favor for them they take advantage and it turns into a fight. - yessy  226.9 #40 8:21AM
Don't have a count down yet, I was hoping for early May but I offered to foster a pet for a family that lost there home to Sandy so I'm not making plans until I know they are settled. As far as Thanksgiving just put up with it for your husband & hope the day goes fast. - perdita  71.2 #86 1:13PM
I have two count downs. 31 for a shot 4 day trip in December and 242 for my yearly Vacation visit. Hang in there we all have family drama. If it gets to bad excuse your self and pull out some Disney photos - Pooh147856  355.1 #24 1:41PM
Lol will do. - yessy  226.9 #40 3:17PM
89 days till my son gets to meet the mouse!!!! LOL - Jarrard  4.3 #532 1:45PM
We are in the 900's lol but at least it's a countdown I guess. I'm blessed to have in laws I love dearly. Now there is drama occasionally with my brothers wives but nothing major. Hope you end up having a great Thanksgiving and be able to enjoy the holiday with family. ✨✨✨✨✨ - txdisneymomma  120.4 #66 3:15PM
34 days for us! Woohoo! - poohbr1205  21.2 #167 3:22PM

33 days!! My 2 sons wives don't like each other. But we all make the best of it. We leave politics and college football out of our conversations. Hope you have a peaceful Thanksgiving! - lghr  48.8 #108 4:08PM
Sorry. that makes for a interesting dinner. And grand children? - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 4:13PM
14 days for me. Im soooo excited. We will actually be at magic kingdom on thanksgiving. First one spent away from my family - arielchica  256.2 #1290 6:50PM
704 days to go....Could change to DL via Vegas. - TheDad  90.0 #77 7:14PM
I'm sorry to hear there are family issuses. Last 4 years my parents, husband and I have been kept out of holidays and anything important (unless involves us giving gifts such as bridal parties and weddings, no thanksgiving or Christmas). So my grandma ends up having to go to three different places for Christmas dinners, on different days but still stuck because growing up we were all very close and would have Christmas dinner with the whole family. I know it's tough but I would try to tough it out if your husband wants to be with family for the holidays. I go to some of my husbands family's party when sometimes I don't want to (I do love them but they can drive ya nuts lol, even him). - TinkTinkTink  262.2 #33 8:53PM
91!! - brittandkell  487.4 #436 10:49PM
Yes grandchildren but they all get along fine. I'm grateful for that. They are all over 21 now except a 14 & 15 yr old. I'm just thankful all my children & GRANDS live close. - lghr  48.8 #108 1:34AM
