Background on the In-Laws.

6 07 2009

     So this really is my very first blog post EVER!  I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon and give this blog thing a try.

     I realize that there’s a good chance that not a single soul will actually read this, but I think it will help me to vent my frustrations and tell anyone who wants to listen EVERYTHING that I have dealt with through the years.

     I realize that there are always two sides to every story, but that’s another good thing about this blog. IT’ MINE! Actually, I don’t think that two sides stuff applies to my situation, which you’ll hear about soon.

     For the time being I’ve decided to use aliases for the real names of all involved. My “name” is going to be Jake. I have a wife named “Lori”. We have 2 boys named “Isaac” and “Brendan”. We have been married for 10 years now, and wouldn’t change a thing. Oh wait, yes I would. HER FAMILY! It is of course Lori’s family that has been my muse for this blog.

     I should probably clarify that none of her family has actually been diagnosed as psychopaths or sociopaths. It’s just a really really strong hunch that I have. Her family consist of her father “Tim”, mother “Terry”, brother “Mitch” and sister “Lucy”. Tim, Terry, Mitch, and Lucy are all liars. Some more so than others, but enough that they all deserve that title. Most of the time they act independently of the others, but sometimes the “four fakes” act together to really screw you over.

     Lying is just one of their vices. I’ll get to all of that eventually. I really just wanted to set the stage for what I hope will be a great form of therapy for me. I want to be able to vent all my anger and frustration without harming anyone. Yes, even the “four fakes” My wife (their daughter) actually feels the same as I do. Sometimes it bothers her more because they are HER family. The little stuff is easy for me to sluff off, but it really gets to her.

     Well I hope that this post has been a good base for the future. I’m looking forward to see if people will actually read this and respond. I was playing with some of the features of this site and I created a poll. Please vote.
