I’m so sorry. Was your husband with you?

I would be upset too and I think you did good by leaving. Just enjoy the rest of your night !

Does your mom know you feel this way or maybe they are just very very easy-going?

I think if that had happened to me I would have suddenly remembered something I had to do…. or just said “Oh in that case, I’ll take the opportunity to stay home and read on the couch” or something.  That would have infuriated me to no end!

My hubby’s response to reading that was “What!?  She’s punishing the good daughter and rewarding the bad one?  SHEESH!” and I couldn’t agree more with him on that.

That is awful. I know how it is going into a situation thinking it’ll be better but it doesn’t. It’s always the same. It’s hard to break the cycle because you are always hoping. Maybe call your mother later and say you didn’t appreciate being left out of a family dinner and would like to be kept in the loop if there is a change of plans. Then hang up the phone before she has a chance to defend herself. You are defending yourself right now and putting your foot down, it hurt your feelings and it happens a lot, something’s gotta change!

I hope you have a nice dinner tonight to make up for it =)

Oh Passionfruit, I really feel for you. So many holidays at my house have ended up in a similar fashion. My sister struggled with addiction and an abusive partner for many years, and it ruined many holidays for our family. If you need to vent, feel free to PM me. I hope you enjoy your dinner with your husband’s family – you deserve it!!!
