We are always invited to the holiday celebrations with son's wife's family, but they are so many and there are just the two of us, and they talk about people and stuff we don't know about, and have their own style of doing things. So we are not comfortable doing things with them. And once upon a time Queen Bee came to a dinner we had an told me all about how she did things differently. So......it just doesn't work that way. But we do see them on birthdays and odd occasions, so we're good.
This too shall pass.
It may pass like a kidney stone,
But it will pass.
