I'm sure you will all set me straight but it's not even Thanksgiving and I already wish it were January and the holidays were behind us ! My MIL and step SIL "fight" about who is hosting what dinner and in all these years my MIL has NEVER made an effort to be at our house for a holiday unless my family is coming. Once again this year my parents are making the 9+hr drive for Christmas and all of the sudden my MIL (only 2hrs away) was hoping to come b/c she just "never gets to see us." We have 1 guest room and a not-so-big house. MIL is offended when I say the large not-so-housebroken dog needs to stay with someone else.
