I guess this is a common theme for me, but I don't care for my family much.
My sister is coming into town tommorrow for about a week. Joyous. So now I get to try to weasel out of dinner with the evil set of grandparents & other relatives and a boring day trip. This on top of my sisters friends coming over and not leaving me alone. And her shaving crap all over the bathtub. Her asking to copy some of my cd's again (grr.), and yelling at me when I say "no." I don't know, she's just annoying. More is sure to come... bet on it.
What bothers me the most is how much of a Big Deal (TM) this has become with my parents. They're practically bending over backwards for her. Geez, mom... you only email her every day, sometimes multiple times. You only call her once a month. And you get to see her around Christmas time, too. And when she's here, she basically just uses the internet until she makes plans to do things with her friends. And yet, you jazz up your stupid bullitin board with "Welcome home!". You buy her balloons. You make her the center of focus at dinner.
Like anything she tells you would be something you didn't read about in e-mail? And, if I really cared to talk or listen to her, I would've emailed her. Bah. Also, siblings fight. It's a fact of life. It will probably happen this week sometime. Stop with your "Why can't you just get along?" crap. I don't care if I don't see my sister that often; if she does something mean to me, I'm not just going to take it. And, no, it isn't only me who is ever at fault for fighting, either. It takes two to tango.
Eh. [END OF RANT]
