I’ll try to give the briefest summary I can of my crazy family.
The parts of my family that I’m the closest with are my mom, dad, sister, my mom’s younger sister (my aunt), and my two grandmothers.
My dad’s side of the family is all about keep up this facade that everything is going well even when it’s not. His older brother has a son and two daughters, all of which I really like but I hear wayyy too much about, like the sun shines out their ass.
My mom’s side of the family is nicknamed “mashed potatoes” by us. For the most part, they all live in Montreal, but they’re very concerned with themselves. Only my cousin and other aunt (my mom’s older sister) seem to have a heart somewhere down there.
As crazy as they all are and as much as I dread seeing them, I don’t know that I’d trade them or change them. Some of them, like my mom’s younger sister/my aunt, I love to pieces. I’m going to live with her and her boyfriend in Halifax when I go off to law school and I can’t wait. I’m sure she’ll be what keeps me from being homesick 24/7 and I know she can’t wait to have me there.
I also love my sister. We squabble sometimes and poke fun at each other, but we also spend a lot of time together and have more inside jokes than anyone. She’s definitely one of my best friends.
Anyway, I’m probably boring you and nobody read this. Maybe Noelle, but she knew all of it so. There you have it. :)
