Birthday Dread-- Boundary issues with BM/FDH rear their ugly head again
My birthday is coming up in a few weeks and YSD’s birthday is 4 days later. A couple of days ago, FDH and I had an email exchange about him wanting to go to his boss’ party the weekend after next. I told him “We will have just moved and I want to get the new house unpacked. If you want to go, I understand because it’s your boss. But I can’t go because I want the house in really good shape. The following weekend I want to have our friends over to celebrate my birthday and want the house nice. I can’t have them over the weekend after my birthday because we have the kids that weekend and YSD’s birthday is that Saturday so she gets that as her birthday weekend. I have to celebrate mine early (My birthday falls mid-week).
