- Wedding: November 2014
So my mom was in town this last weekend to see me perform in a play, and also got to watch SO perform in another play in town. While she was going to his show, I had one as well so I couldn’t join them. Afterwards, SO tells me he’s taking my mom out for a drink (at a really fancy place) and I should join them there after my (longer) show.
All of a sudden, I just KNOW he’s having the “marriage/ blessing” talk with my mom. This is important to me, as my dad is out of the picture, and while I don’t need my mom’s “permission,” her blessing is really essential. SO knows this.
I show up to have drinks with them, we talk about other stuff, and then go home. Later that night, SO tells me he *almost* had the big talk with my mom BUT they had had an awkward moment before going for drinks, so he got nervous and decided it wan’t the right time. Aggh!
Apparently my mom had done her “I don’t want to keep you from your friends/ you don’t REALLY want to hang out with me” thing to the point where my SO had to be very insistant (without my mom knowing WHY) and I guess this soured the mood. Or something. I’m a little put off, because I would have liked for that to have happened before we went to SO’s family in GA for Thanksgiving (when we will look at rings with FMIL).
I did tell my mom that the next time she’s here (in early December), she should say ‘yes’ if SO wants to have a word with her alone. Wink, wink. LOL. She said, “ooooh! facepalm!” haha, I think she knew what I was talking about.
So we’ll see. Thak you all for listening to my craziness, yet again. <3 <3 <3 to the bees. Wish me luck on ring shopping over Thanksgiving! I’m not feeling optimistic about it, but we’ll see…
