I'm making this OT, because it's not a specifically step-related topic.

With the holidays upon us, I'm reminded of all the things I love about DH's family .

I was venting to a friend and she replied, "yeah, when you get married you hope it will be a romantic comedy, not a family melodrama."

I replied, "yeah, I definitely got the family melodrama!"
