weddingmaven : I don’t blame her I’m just shocked that she didn’t even say anything to me when I just spoke to her. I think she is now disappointed they aren’t going because she posted on DH’s Facebook telling him Happy Birthday and that she would have to eat the cake by herself now. Whatever, I guess. It’s over now.

daysgoneby : Quite honestly, I’m not sure what you think she should have said or done differently or why you were disappointed in anyone but H. She assumed you knew about the guy’s trip and the change of plan and probably intended to disappear and leave them to their own devices after serving them some cake. I don’t think it’s any more complicated than that.

daysgoneby : Taking to Facebook to air her “grievances” over having to eat the cake alone is passive aggressive and a little sad, iMO.

kissthesunkisstherain : I think the cousin’s wife was just saying she was sorry she didn’t get to see him, and now she would “have” to eat all those calories. I’m pretty sure it was meant as a joke.

weddingmaven : Possible, yeah. If she had written something along the lines of “Happy Birthday, wish you and your family could have been here for the cake” it would be less open to interpretation though.

I’m glad it turned out well, OP! It would have been strange and sad for your Darling Husband to spend his birthday with someone else’s wife and kids and not his own. Don’t feel even a little bit guilty for thinking that he should be spending this weekend with you!
