well, I'm at work and I have a minute or two to post, so I thought I would pop in and get this off my chest in the hopes that I will not bring it with me to dinner tonight.
My sister, her H and her 2 kids are in town from out of state. I am SUPER excited to see them! I haven't seen my sister in almost 2 years, and although her kids stay with us for a while every summer, I can't wait to see them too! The kicker is her H.
I've never met him, and after some of the things the kids have said about him, I'm not sure I really want to... I'm nervous about it. I want to go into it with an open mind, but the last time I talked to the kids they were furious about their mom getting married and that has influenced my thoughts toward BIL. (I've never called him that, wierd!).
What if I don't like him? What if he doesn't like me? I know that it's not a huge deal since they live out of state, but it would affect my relationship with my sister. I just can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that they are married and now their a package deal no matter what and I need to accept that. I need to go into this meeting with an open mind, but all I am hearing in my head are the things the kids said about him... Granted, the kids are 14 and 11, so I should be able to keep that in mind, but they're not stupid. They're very well rounded and not prone to say things that aren't true out of spite.
Anyway, just feeling wierd about the whole thing and wanted to vent a little.
