June 6th is our first wedding anniversary so DH was planning to do something special with just us. I was thinking dinner and maybe a movie since we are planning a trip to see my family and pick up some baby stuff later in the month. We were going to just spend the whole day together because time together has been limited since he was put on first shift at his job and I am on second shift at mine. Friday and Saturday nights (after I come home from work) are the only times we have been able to spend together. I managed to get the day off work so I was thinking that it would be all romantic and fun. . . our last anniversary as just us and not as the parents of a LO.
Anyhow, I get a call three days ago from SIL who tells me that MIL's BF has planned a cookout for MIL's birthday on Saturday (her birthday is Friday 6/5) and that we are supposed to be there by noon. I say that it will be our first wedding anniversary, but was told in a roundabout way that since BIL is on the road as an OTR trucker, our presence was expected.
Okay, so I am a soft touch. I figured we could drop in, give her a present, have a hamburger, go and look at some baby stuff then finish with dinner and a movie. I agree to make an appearance at her function with DH.
Well, yesterday, DH tells me that his mother called to talk to him about Saturday. She said that since we would probably be too full from the appetizers, lunch and dessert that we should just plan on going to a late movie. I suppose this has turned into an all day event like Memorial Day Eve did (we were there from 11 am until 9 pm).
I am more irritated at myself than anyone. I mean it is our anniversary and DH would have told his mother and sister that we were not going to be able to make it if I had told him to, but I am chronically nice (ugh, I hate that trait sometimes). Since MIL is a cancer survivor and this is her first birthday since the divorce and her first one with her new bf & the first one in her new house, I am willing to put our plans on hold until Tuesday (my next day off work) when DH has promised to dedicate the entire afternoon and evening to making up for the postponement of our anniversary celebration.
Thanks for letting me vent.
