- Wedding: January 2013
So DH and I got married about two months ago with no plans to ever go on a honeymoon. This bothered me a smidge, but I had to go back to work right after the wedding and then school started again not long after so it wasn’t really feasable for us to go on a honeymoon. Plus, DH isn’t a fan of vacations at.all. He went to Hawaii once and hated it (can you believe it?!). I’m not huge on vacations either but I do enjoy them.
Anyway, I haven’t been dwelling on the whole honeymoon thing at all, until now. My immediate family consists of my parents and two sisters and ALL of them are going on vacation soon. My parents are going to visit their parents (dad=Minnesota, mom=California) for two weeks, then meeting up and going to Jamaica for two weeks. My mom is actually going back to California for another two weeks after that as well. One of my sisters and her boyfriend are going to Hawaii for two weeks for a friend’s wedding. My other sister and her fiance are going on a week-long roadtrip starting from New Mexico.
I’m excited for all of them, but they keep making comments about them “going on my honeymoon” and it’s really bumming me out! I just got married and everyone expects me to have gone on an awesome honeymoon, but I’ve just been sitting at home/cleaning/working/studying. Ugh. Add in the fact that it’s winter in Alaska which means EVERYONE is jetting off to Hawaii (I know about 20 or so people close to me have gone in the last couple months) and I’m feeling pretty left behind.
My mom made a “going on your honeymoon” joke last night (and she’s not trying to be mean, she was just joking around and if she knew I felt this way would feel HORRIBLY guilty and probably offer for me to go with her or something silly like that to make up for it LOL) and I actually started bawling. That made DH feel guilty and that it was his fault, but it’s not. Ugh! I don’t even really want to go on a vacation but I’m so bummy, it’s confusing and lame.
He did say that he knows he hasn’t been taking me out much lately (which is true, the only time we go to town together we’re running errands) and that he feels bad about that, so he wants to take me on a date this Friday. So that should be nice! I hope it makes me feel less crummy.
Anyone have a similar situation?
