Roll Call!

Who's here and what are you doing?

I am sitting here listening to a very grumpy DH. He's all mad cuz we seem to be getting the passive aggressive third degree from people. Nobody from his family (besides his mother) has actually asked us to see Cade, but somehow it's our faults that they haven't seen him. They don't ever ask us when we are available, they just complain to his parents. His step mother actually said to me today "That I guess Cade will never know FIL and me since we've only seen him for a few minutes since he was born". Like.... you never asked to have us over. Ever. Families suck. Why do people want to treat us like children and go tattle to parents instead of just call us and ask to see us? My family does that.

    Watching Friday night lights and sippin on some Pinot noir.

    When family says things like 'well we never see DS' I always am quick to respond with 'we'll you know where we live!' I know it sucks. I'm sorry.

  • That's ridiculous. Sorry you're going through that. Are they expecting you to host a meet and greet party?

    I'm watching Boardwalk Empire with a glass of Riesling. I'm starting to get bored of it...

    No, they don't expect that. They just don't ever ask to see him. It's like, my kid. You should be asking us when you can see him. Not the other way around.

    My DH's family does this! They say they miss DS and tell people that I never bring him around. They never call, never ask and never try to make plans.

    They make you out to be the bad guy. If they make it your fault that they don't see Cade, then they don't have to feel guilty.

    Families suck sometimes. I can totally relate!

  • Here. Toddlers and malls do not mix! I need a drink.

  • I'm waiting for my advil to kick in and then I need to go milk my cow. Ds1 is in bed and DH and DS2 are asleep on the couch.

    Family sucks. My family likes to make plans and then cancel last minute. They are 400 miles away, and were suppose to come visit tomorrow. I just got a text that they weren't coming. They do it all the time.

    Here.  About to eat dinner and watch Scandal.

    Baby Prime wait continues.

  • We're watching episode two of Dr Who!

  • I'm here.  We had to go to the visitation for DH's grandma tonight.  DS did really good, but there is another visitation tomorrow and I think I'm going to have DH go by himself.  I don't think 2 days at the funeral home is much fun for a 2 year old.

     

    Speaking of families, while we were there MIL introduced me to DH's cousins.  Um, DH and I have been married for 7 years, together for 10 and we see his family all the time.  Pretty sure I know his cousins.  They just looked at her like she was crazy.

  • Nana, you should call your MIL every couple days to see if they want to come over.  Like, overkill with the calling.  Maybe then she'll stop complaining.

    Then go back into my scandal thread down the page to discuss. It's been a slow moving convo. I'm mostly talking to myself in there and would like some other viewpoints.

    Yeah, there's some doozies in this episode! 


  • I'm here!  I don't post much; I'm a dirty lurker from mobile most of the time.

    DH is working & I have no idea when he'll be home.  DS is in bed & I'm re-watching Lost.  I'm almost to the point where it starts getting super ridiculous though and don't know if I want to keep watching.  FWP.

  • I'm here and so so tired. DD slept well last night but I did not (stupid anxiety). I'm headed to bed at a reasonable hour tonight...
  • I'm here and we just got back from an all day outing with the ILs for MILs bday.

    My friend is in town from NY and I told her I would text her when I got back to see if she was still out and about at the bars so I could meet up with her. I did text her, but she didn't text me back, and I am kind of thankful because I just want to watch TV and go to bed! But I do feel bad because I rarely see her, and next time she comes up this way I have plans.

  • I'm sorry, that sucks. My ILs do it, too, and it annoys the crap out of me. We do frequently try to make plans with them but they are always busy. Then she makes passive aggressive comments about how, "A probably doesn't even remember them". They live about 15 minutes away from us and they are welcome to have us over for a dinner that is not Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter. Our place is too small to host anything and they are always too busy to go out and I don't like them to babysit. Argh. Now I'm all worked up. Stick out tongue

    We're still PTing so we've been stuck at home all day. Except a super fun trip to Trader Joes and another to Fred Meyer and a walk to the playground in the rain. We might try to go play at the science museum tomorrow since the weather is still blah.

  • I'm here. Just got done eating and waiting for DH to finish dishes.

    I'm right with ya re: families. Mine is driving me batty right now. They make plans, then don't follow through; or they'll make plans and my brother and his family somehow wrecks the plans.

    I got my entryway painting done today. It turned out awesome and was a lot easier than I thought it'd be. How do you PIP on mobile??? I want to AW my work!

    Naw, 95 to 140? I.hate.95! 

     


    95 is hell. I hate most roads around here.

    I grew up on back country roads. These are terrible.

    We saw the Goodyear blimp while we drove to fort McHenry today. Did you have fun?
