Let me clarify, I’m not even usually excited to go see my dad lol. He remarried when I was in college and we’ve always had just a superficial, emotionally distant relationship.
I usually only visit out of obligation and the non-stop guilt trips about how I never come to visit. We’ll go for a couple holidays but it’s usually boring and his wife is so rude.
I feel so bad even asking my SO to go with me, though he will, because it’s my own family and I don’t even enjoy it much so I can’t imagine that he would. We also live a good distance away.
Well, Dad has been laying on the guilt trip pretty thick lately so I asked SO if he wouldn’t mind going for a visit on the 4th of July. I assumed he would have something else he’d rather do (like ANYTHING) or he would agree to make me happy. But I get this text in response: “Yeah! Of course!” which I thought was really sweet but struck me as odd. Why would he be excited? I’m not lol so then I wondered if maybe he sees it as an opportunity to ask my Dad’s permission? I’m like 99% sure I’m reading too much into it but he’s never excited to go there! And that made me remember a while back he said something along the lines of “If you ever want to go out just to visit them we can do that.” Trying to be all casual about it.
So I’m excited J We have a timeline of no later than March 2014 though I’m thinking it’ll be more like December/January. EEEEP!
