- Wedding: October 2011
ok, so honestly i’m excited for the wedding, but fi’s parents are really starting to piss me off. they second guess EVERYTHING that is going on with our wedding plans. first, it was the reception venue, photographer, DJ….. now fi told his parents we have a cake tasting set up in a couple weeks. of course, they ask how much, how much, how much. then goes on to tell us to check other places out. do they not think i’ve done my research? i’m sorry but .98 cents a serving is pretty damn good. it annoys the crap out of me they keep asking how much things are costing. they don’t believe in spending ANY money on weddings, which is fine, whatever, everyone has their own values and what they choose to spend money on. but seriously, learn from previous experiences when i get upset when they second guess everything.
then, this isn’t really wedding related, but i went to several college basketball games with them last year (my fi used to play in college, and his bro still goes to that college, so they follow)… so fii’s mom calls him tonight and asks him to go to a game on monday, and she said i could go to but she told him ” i know she doesnt really like to do those things with us”…. WTF? when did i ever once complain about going? i went to SEVERAL games last year and wanted to!
i also went to a pampered chef party with his mom a couple weeks ago. somehow the ladies got to talk about lunch, and his mom was like “oh well, my son goes simple. he is the one that makes their lunches..” almost like, ohhh since he is making their lunches, he doesn’t have the time to make anything else. i have never once asked him to make my lunch, its just something he does b/c he is amazing and likes to treat me well.
plus, we see them at LEAST once a week, and i feel like i have to see them every single time. plus his mom is very touchy feely and still babies him. hello, he is 25. she once made the comment if we ever moved away, she would buy an RV and camp with us for weeks at a time. i know it was said jokingly, but come on. i can totally see her doing it…..
i really am starting to get pissed off, just by little comments his mom and dad make, whether it be wedding related, or life in general. i guess it just makes me feel inadequate or like i’m taking their son away from them…..
does anyone else have inlaws or FIL’s like this?! how do i deal with it? just suck it up? i can’t really say anything to fi about it b/c i would offend him…
