Well,I thought I would post down here under vents and spare my buddy group from listening to my ranting. Need to get it off my chest though!
Yesterday for Mother's Day(I have one 3yr old DD) we were supposed to have a nice dinner here at our place. My mom, her boyfriend, my brother, bro's very preggo gf, and DH and DD. I cooked and cleaned all day Saturday and Sunday morning. I made homemade sauce, meatballs, a large antipasto salad....
Sunday morning I wake up to find DH gone and a part of me thought maybe he had run out to get my Mom's Day card or breakfast. I got up to find a note that he got called into work because staff was not scheduled properly. I was a little crestfallen, but figured no biggie. I proceeded about my cleaning and cooking. Then he gets home at 2pm (my family and DD who spent the night at grammas were coming at 4 for dinner)and he takes a quick run with my brother to the store so my brother can get something for his gf since it is her first mother's day. When he gets home, I say "Can I have my card now" and I'm smiling...(I was just teasing him--not actually demanding a card) He tells me "I didn't get you one--you always say you hate to get a card that I just ran out and bought the day of and put no thought into, so I just didn't get one." Well, that was when the dam broke. I immediately start crying and am like---HELLO! I don't want some card you bought the morning of, but what the hell was going on all last week? Mother's Day is the first Sunday in May forever--its not like he didn't know about it. He couldn't have found five minutes to make me a card or have DD color a picture! Well, it just got worse from there. The family was all an hour late for dinner, not one person wished me a Happy Mother's Day, no one even said thanks for dinner.
I went to bed in tears after everyone left. I know this sounds really silly and petty--I just felt so unappreciated. I felt bad crying, because I know my DH felt awful and this is honestly not like him. He is usually very caring and sensitive to my feelings. I know he feels like a heel, but I just couldn't stop the tears. This morning I woke up to a big temp drop too so I am sure AF is due today or tomorrow and that the hag is probably contributing to my PMS and the crying.
Well, sorry for this long rant and to anyone that actually sits here and reads it!
