To my DH's family:

After rallying the troops and getting together for Grandma's 90th birthday (long story short - we were supposed to go out to lunch for her 90th, grandma went to the hospital, checked in, checked out and everyone pitched in for a family dinner), we now have to go to brunch for her 90th. Again. Then on Tuesday, celebrate fat Tuesday.

Seriously, the family bonding has gone extreme and we don't have to see each other twice a week every week. Weekly family dinners, guilt trips over being busy for family dinners and the gossiping over other family members have to stop. My family is always put on the back burner and I am sick of it. I understand grandma is 90 and but it's my MIL driving these requests, not her.
