Well it was my birthday this weekend and 20 months of disengagement I got a gift from the middleshit, and a decent gift at that [Christmas decoration]. The Hubs had accidently taken the gift tag off got I didn’t know who it was from until I had opened it.
The first words to come out of his mouth were, look everything is great now lets go back to all talking. I informed him that I am not materialistic and people actions speak more than what they spend, I also told him that this had been that happiest and calmest year of our married life and I am not willing to change that for the foreseeable future, I am not saying that will never reengage with them but they do not bring anything positive to my life.
I then said its my birthday and I refuse for us to have an argument today so you better suck up your defensive daddy feelings now and put on that happy face
