Ughh. Okay, so my mom hates doing things that other women enjoy. Shopping is one of those things. She’d rather be watching a football game, any time. She took me shopping for prom gowns back in high school and she rushed me through the process and both times I didn’t really like my dresses. I just got what made her happy because she was complaining about being there.
Well; I didn’t want to inconvenience her by asking her to go wedding dress shopping with me. I knew it would be like pulling teeth and I’d end up feeling rushed to buy a dress I hate. So, today, FMIL agreed to go with me to get my dress. I found one I loved and bought it immediately. I texted my mom and told her I’d gotten it and she seemed excited. Then, she text me back and said, “wow, you took your FMIL instead of me?” Her response floored me! I wrote back reminding her of how she hates shopping, so she said, “You’ve got a point, just tell me when and where to show up!”
WTF?!? I just can’t f’n win! I was soo excited to FINALLY get to go dress shopping. Now my mom ‘s feelings are hurt. FMIL asked if my mom would be upset, I said no. Didn’t think she would. So, just now my mom post a FB status that says, “I am floored that my daughter went dress shopping without me.” So, now FMIL is going to see it and feel guilty too.
What am I supposed to do?
