- Wedding: September 2011
I will be lucky if I hear of either of my parents. My Dad lives 30 miles away out in the sticks, and public transport to where he lives sucks, and as we dont have a car, a lot of the time it falls on him to come to us. So far this year…I have yet to see my Dad. Yup,you read that right, I havent seen my Dad this YEAR yet. So, enough said there.
My Mum, well weve never been super close ( I didnt live with her growing up as parents are divorced) but Id say were probably good friends. Well, she will probably forget, and then I will hear off her in a few days saying she was tired,or forgot. And I havent seen her since Feb.
Now all of us as a family have never been super tight knit. But this isnt what makes me sad, after all Im kinda used to it by now. But what makes me really sad is that Mother-In-Law confided in me earlier that my sweet Darling Husband, spoke to her how it breaks his heart that I am always waiting for a card, phone call, or hell, even a text off my parents and always get disappointed.
Poor Darling Husband, he always trys so,so hard to make my birthdays special, and now I know that part of that is because he is trying to make up for my parents!
This makes me so sad. I still get a little twinge that my parents cant pick up the phone for a few minutes once a year, but it breaks my heart that Darling Husband gets upset by it too.
I have seriously thought about cutting both of my parents out of my life for a short period, just so I can get some space away from it all, but to be honest, it wouldnt make that much difference as to how much I see them now haha!
Luckily, all of my ILs are amazing and thoughtful and I know I will get home from work tomorrow and they will all be at our house waiting to “suprise” me, but I still cant help having a small twinge that so many people are not lucky enough to still have their parents with them, and mine can barely stand to be in contact no matter how much effort I put forward!
*Sigh* I guess this was a really sucky pity party and just feeling sorry for myself a little, and for Darling Husband too, considering he feels so bad on my part.
BUT, anybody else have a birthday coming up?
