Christmas Vacation Drama
SO's parents decided to buy SO and HIS daughters tickets for a Christmas cruise. They never asked me if I wanted to go or had the consideration to ask if I minded being alone with my toddler son for a whole week. I am hurt, disappointed, and furious for the following reasons:
1: They think i'm dumb enough to believe that they didn't think this trip through. Step daughters talk crap about me all the time to grandparents, i'm convinced they planned this to exclude me so that SO and his daughters can have christmas alone. I include daughters in all of the trips that we plan.
2; Winter is my busy season at work and i am being left at home to fend for myself with my toddler son. 0 consideration.
3: SO expects me to host holiday dinners and cater to their schedules. Sorry not playing happy family and catering to them when they are willing to leave "Family" behind. Trust is gone. Family bond is gone.
4: I do EVERYTHING for SO and his daughters despite the fact that I work full-time and they do not pitch in around the house. Why can't they acknowledge that I pick up the family's slack?
5: SO is totally cool with leaving me and son at home while they vacation together. He doesn't care about my feelings I suppose. I feel like I made the biggest mistake of my life getting involved with this man. I wish I could start over.
