So it's a long, long story, but dh's family is kind of in bad shape right now. He has a brother and a sister, and the sister likes to "stir the pot" sometimes. I don't want to get into the he said, she said game, but I will say that we said some mean things too. We may not have started the fight, but we certainly didn't play the game very nicely.
With that being said....we currently only talk to dh's parents. We aren't able to have family gatherings b/c people can't get along. (missed out on Christmas) At first I was stubborn and angry, and wanted an apology for the things that were said about me...but now I'm at the point where I just think it's childish. The biggest thing is our son misses his cousins. He's only 3 and he just doesn't understand why he doesn't see his "buddies." It's just sad. The person who holds a lot of power in this whole situation is dh's sister. I've tried emailing, I've tried texting, and she won't respond. Should I just call her? And swallow my pride and apologize???
