God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference
Okay, so I’m in serious vent mode right now. DH and I have been married for 1 month today 🙂 (yay, so excited!). Anyways, we did a DW in Florida. Up until then everything was great between MIL and I – we’d talk, email, etc. Well, when we got down to Florida 2 days before the wedding she kinda did a 180 on me. She’s not mean to me by any means, but she won’t stop clinging to my DH!! The entire time we were down there before the wedding and after she was always giving him hugs, holding his hands, talking about when he was a kid, and I was completely left out. She didn’t really have much to say to me other than her last minute changes to our ceremony – that’s a whole different post some day…
Anyways, I just kind of blew it off since it was during the wedding. Well, when we got home a week later from our honeymoon his mom has now just randomly started showing up to his work to “visit” him. She finds every excuse to get in there and will wait as long as 45 minutes until he’s free and can come say hi to her. I have to go out of town every other Friday for school and she just happens to show up at his work to take him to dinner on the weekends that I’m gone. It’s caused some arguments between DH and I because I feel like she wants nothing to do with me. She only wants to see him, and I guess my feelings are hurt. Trying to reach out I asked her to dinner this weekend with DH and I and she said she wasn’t feeling good and wasn’t up to it, but just text DH and told him she’s coming to see him at work tomorrow (wants to pick something up from him).
I’m completely frustrated by the situation right now. We’ve never had any type of bad moment and I always thought we got along great. Not really sure what the hell is going on, but I’m not sure what to do or think about it all. I feel bad for DH because he doesn’t know why she’s doing it and of course to him it’s “his mom” so he doesn’t see the big deal behind it all.
Feeling kinda sad about it all….
