20. I know you're hurt and I don't blame you for that
But speaking as a mom, grandmom, significant other, daughter, sister and cousin, it gets really hard to juggle everyone. There kind of comes a time when you have to forge new traditions and you may be moving into that area. Or it may be that your mom just needs some time to re-configure her life - she could very well be being pulled in a lot of directions at once. I know I am at times.

If all your family is in Wisconsin, and the new step-dad's family is as well, maybe you might think about planning on going there for Christmas in future and being with all of them. It might not be perfect but life is a compromise.

And here's a hug because it sounds like you need one. :hug:
