    I have a vent that I think would go here.

    Today I got an automated message from Face-book saying that I haven't been on in a while. Yeah I don't go on there because my family is full of drama and I have enough of that in my own life. For some reason I went there today. I found out that my cousin (dad's brother's daughter who is 6 weeks older then me) is getting married today. I knew it was coming soon so I didn't think much of it other then to think, it is strange that she is getting married on my father's birthday. Then I thought, I bet since I wasn't invited, that my father wasn't either.

    So I called dad for his birthday and asked him if he was getting ready for the big party. He said no, he was watching JJ (my sister) ice skate (she is only in 2nd grade but seems to have some degree of talent for it). Then he asked "what big party?" I told him that it was C's wedding day. He too thought it was odd that she was getting married on his birthday but confirmed that he wasn't invited. He also thought it was odd because yesterday he talked to R (dad's brother and C's father) and the wedding was spoken about in general terms but nothing was said about it being today.

    So I am thinking that dad and I just lost a large section of his family. I mean last time I was out there (2 years ago) no one on dad's side of the family wanted to see me (before that I hadn't been out there in about 3 years) so I guess that speaks volumes for the family. I am also reminded that when I got married (out here, family is in WA and OR) I invited everyone (including C and R) even though I didn't expect them to even come to the wedding or even send a gift (which they didn't do). I just thought it was polite to do so.

    Anyway this whole thing upset me because it makes me realize that dad's family is even more messed up then I thought.

    I'm not on FB, but that was my first thought, too. Dump all their rears off there and have fun!

    Don't you think that unfriending them all would be me stooping to their level? I mean I would rather take the high ground on this. They already think I have aires because I live in New Jersey after all and everyone knows EVERYONE who lives out here is rich.
