dptduke, if you love your sister you deal with the jerk. We used to celebrate Christmas here, but my husband's father hated the fact that we had dogs in the house. I would put them in crates so his parents would be comfortable here and because I loved my husband. Eventually it just became easier to have Christmas at their house and we brought the roast beef with us. When my husband's father would say things about the dogs in his all knowing way I would just smile and move on. Often not raising to the bait is a much stronger insult than reacting.
NOW, if someone had kicked one of my dogs that person would have been physically removed from my house in a not so pleasant way and made VERY aware that they were NOT welcome here again. I wouldn't care if I did love my sibling or child.
I usually can tolerate people, even those I do not like, but IF my sister (whom I really don't care if I ever see again) were to come visit the sperm donor she lives with would not be welcome.
