Isn't that ridiculous? haha I'm not sure how I feel about this so help me out.
Every July 4th we go to a cookout thrown by my extended family. Any get together that doesn't involve DH's friends of family makes him groan because he says he doesn't have anyone to talk to. But this once a year cookout is the only thing I ever ask him to go to. This year he wants to go to his brother's house for the day (who we saw last weekend and have seen about 4 other times in the past few months) and have me take Aiden to see my family.
I guess I kind of don't care except that it leaves me with all the kid wrangling while he gets a day totally to himself. Plus then I have to answer everyone who asks why he isn't there. Do people care why someone isn't there? Do they take it personally? I don't know how to phrase "He got a better invitation" :-p
I honestly am not someone who cares if their DH goes out or whatever but I feel slighted that the only time we're supposed to hang with my family, he wants to bail.
