Long backstory with SIL and I not getting along. I’ve talked to DH and let him know what I’ve got some of my own stuff to work out and then I’ll work on SIL’s and my relationship.
SIL and her husband came in last night to tell everyone she’s pregnant. We had dinner and congratulated them, etc. We just bought a new house so they wanted to come over and see it at some point. DH and I had things planned for today, so he asked SIL and her husband if they wanted to come over tomorrow before they left to go home. They said ok. The plan was for me to leave tomorrow morning to go get lunch and go to a party with a friend who lives a few hours away. We were going to clean the house tonight but after a stressful week, DH and I went on a date night and then he had a headache when he got home and went straight to bed.
So the plan was for us to get up early and clean then I’d leave and SIL and husband would come over to see the house. Until I get a text from MIL (why she’s involved I have NO FREAKING idea!). She asks me when I’m going to my friends. I say I’m probably leaving midmorning. She asks if I want SIL and husband to come over before breakfast. I reply that we have to get up and clean, so early won’t really work. She wants me to call her in the morning.
Now I have no idea why, but I think MIL will be upset if I’m not here when SIL and husband come. I don’t know why she’s inserting herself into the situation. If SIL wanted me to be here when she was here, why is she not texting me herself? Am I just crazy? Or does this seem needlessly complicated? Who cares if I’m here or not? Why can I not just go with our plan?
