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, Future Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law is going to see it and feel guilty too.
What am I supposed to do?
