Who are you least looking forward to seeing

It would be my sister husband, BIL is really a nice man, but his voice is loud, he panic even if the littlest thing goes wrong , and he never shuts up

My brother from another state, who will bring his children and grandchildren (no mothers in the picture for any of them). Every time he comes to town, he asks me if I know "the health of the estate" and whether or not my mother is having to spend much of what Dad provided for her (Dad died three years ago). I tell him I don't know and am not interested, and it is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.

My mother wants to have dinner at her house, so I will be there with her to cook, serve and clean up while he sits and drinks wine and gives us his philosophy on life.

One of these days, I am going to explode. Maybe this time, maybe next.

Ours was last month low-key but, the one person whom drives me to distraction is one of dh's 4 brothers. His name is Paul, he thinks he is a Canadian version of McCartney. I will give him that when he was younger the resemblance was there. Which in itself is interesting as all the other men in dh's family are like blue eyed Russell Brands; they joke that he was adopted!

He thinks he can sing like Sir Paul too! He is always breaking out in song around me. I've tried telling him to stop, and Dh has tried but to no avail. For the most part I just try to avoid him. The family is large now, and our Celebrations are in a hall which makes it easier for me to keep a distance between us.

Mother in Law. It's not enough that I'm suffering with excruciating back pain that I have to suffer through a few hours with her too??

BIL, they live in the poor house but he is constantly bragging that if he wanted to he can make 5K in a weekend...
My husband and I were married in WDW on 9-2-2004!

Nobody actually. It is just my husband, my daughter and myself this year. My daughter has to work at 5:30 (it's Black Friday {well almost} don't you know), so we will eat early so she can nap a little before working for 12.5 hours.

I am however thankful that my brother isn't coming to town. we have extremely opposite views on politics and many issues and he sees that as his cue to try and "fix" what's wrong with my bleeding liberal heart. I am glad I don't have to listen to what's wrong with me again this year.

Can I say myself? I am not really in a very good mood, so I won't be much fun this year.

It will just be 4 of us for Thanksgiving, but I don't look forward to seeing one of my cousins at Xmas or summer get togethers. She goes on and on about what the new "evil" food is, or the latest psycho-babble from a some obscure website, or alternatives to doctors and medicine, or other crazy theories.

I wish she'd stick to less controversial subjects, like politics or religion or gay marriage.

Our group will be my family (DH, two teen boys, and myself), my parents, my brother and sister (neither of whom are married or have kids). DH's parents both passed away years ago. His brother lives several states away. All of my family members live in the same city so we see and talk to each other often. We all went out to dinner together on Saturday for DH's birthday. We spend all of the holidays together. It's all good.

Thanksgiving is spent with my wife and my daughter. I long for the days when the whole family would meet. In younger days (I'm now 50) I would say to myself, I'm not looking forward to seeing so and so and etc. But now I so much wish I could have the loud nephews running around (they are all grown now), my irritating Sister-In-Law around (brother died a few years ago at age 45), my MIL (passed away) and my parents (now in poor health). Ohhh, looking back I sure do miss those chaotic Thanksgiving days and wish I could have just one more even if it meant the loud unruly nephews and the irritating SIL.
