I Hate My Inlaws!

Petty Slight

It's adorable that you think slighting me makes some kind of point. Oh, sure, I suppose it does. It says "We're still miserable and want to make sure you don't forget it."

I think it's fair to say that my own family and circle of friends take great care of me/us and never let a special day go by without letting us know how much they love and appreciate us. It's quite refreshing, actually. There is never any emotional game-playing, no attempts to make someone feel "less than", just unconditional and joyous love. Imagine that?

My family zoomed me today, and during that zoom call asked me if I had heard anything from any of you today. I told them "Nope. Radio Silence.". They thought that was pretty pathetic and petty. I told them that such pettiness is par for the course. Our family doesn't operate that way. The few petty individuals in our family got weeded out long ago.

But, it's alright y'all. It's just yet another example for my husband to see in order to reinforce his opinions. Every time your family is so horrible to me (and him, and our kids), it's measured up against my family always being so welcoming and loving. Cheers.
