Leave it alone. I’ve had this situation many times, but mostly over little things. My mom and I went to try on accessories with my dress when she came for a visit, and my fmil got mad that we didnt invite her and didnt call her when we went for drinks after. She told me fi and not me. But I didnt say anything.

You can remember or have to include everyone in everything. I think it would have been different if it was your fi’s bday. But there is no shame in wanting to spend time with only your family.

I wouldn’t leave it alone. Tell you FI about it, and make plans with her to have dinner another night (the 3 of you), and just simply tell her your sorry and just explain. I’m sure she’ll understand. 🙂

I would make plans to hang out with her and FH a different time. And next time, invite her! Don’t assume she wouldn’t want to come over just because its a long drive.

@amberdk:  this.

I think you should apologize, and tell her it was not intentional. Just be sure to invite her out in the future whether you think she’ll go or not 🙂
