So, we all know by now that my family is utterly dysfunctional.
Lovable . . . ? Sure. Loyal . . . ? Mostly.
Completely fucked up . . . ? Abso-fucking-lutely.
The latest craptastical drama began at Christmas.
Prior to the holidays, something happened, which was then posted about on Facebook.
Certain family members either aren't on Facebook, or are completely clueless about Facebook, so they didn't get the memo about the "something" that happened.
Comments were then made about said "something" at Christmas . . . which lead to other comments being made that hurt some family members, all of which contributed to a rift that has persisted to this very day.
The other day, I was sent a private message via Facebook by a family member, either berating or busting my ass about the fact that they found out about my surgery via Facebook, and not, as they believe they should have, via me or other family members.
I responded that while I was sorry that they'd been left out of the loop, the situation they were upset about was very similar to the situation that happened prior to Christmas . . . when they'd failed to communicate about their "something", other than via Facebook . . . and, hence, why certain other family members had gotten upset at Christmas.
A bit of back-and-forth via FB private message ensued, during which I decided that we don't communicate well enough as a family unit.
So, as a result, I have now implemented Sunday Family Brunch Day.
God help us all.
Beginning this upcoming Sunday, I will be hosting Sunday Family Brunch Day.
We will NOT discuss politics, religion, or any other hot topic that may incite drama.
I'll let you know how it works out.
