I am pretty sure I should not be blogging right now.
Not in the I-think-I-had-to-much-to-drink-and-should-not-be-writing way, but more in a “I-cannot-believe-my-mother-is-here-and-you-are-writing-a-blog-instead-of-entertaining-her” way (quote husband).
Actually I know I should not be blogging right now, because he just left the house to take a little walk and before he left he said: “Now she’s going back and forth about wanting to drive down to Vancouver on Thursday. Can you talk to her and tell her to make up her mind?”.
That’s exactly what I want to do. I have been in the friggin’ doghouse since she got here, because I refuse to embrace a woman that has made me feel uncomfortable in my own skin since I met her.
I am happy for my husband and children that they enjoy her visit, but I will not be forced into feeling the same way. I just can’t fake it. I can carry a conversation and answer questions and show genuine interest, but that’s as far as it goes.
So when she told my husband that she wanted to go down to Vancouver and do some sightseeing he said he would take her and make a day trip out of it. They were going on Thursday. Now she doesn’t want to go. Or maybe she does. But only if he really wants to.
So I am asking you (but not really, because I have already answered myself and I am happy with my answer): if someone says they want something and you make plans to do just that and then they change their mind and want you to beg them to do what they originally asked for - would you do that?
NO. NEIN. NON. NO WAY. NJET.
So, I decided to write a blog instead and my husband can deal with it when he comes back from his walk.
I’ll be in the doghouse if you need me.
