64. just count down til it'll be over. try to grin and bear it?
Since probably nothing you could say would make them stop and think.

MY family is ALL super cool, but they're all far away.

We live near my inlaws who have a huge, big-deal feast every Thanksgiving. Well one of their old friends caught me out at a store by myself once and started a fight about me not making a grandchild for them. (I would kill myself before giving MY child the rest of this century, and I mean that more than y'all would even believe.) But he's still invited to their big party every year. They probably thanked him for sticking up for them that way! It's ruined my relationship with them for as long as they live, but since he's their guest after what he did to their only daughter-in-law then I don't feel like I've lost much. I'm glad I don't have to go & pretend all day.
Also this year my husband's uncle will be coming up from Florida. He always creeped me out and that was before he got so Republican.

I'll give thanks for not having to spend the day with ANY of the people at their party! I'll blast my tunes and make a yummy spinach sandwich on homemade bread :D
