My Feelings were hurt
I started being hurt but now I'm starting to get mad.
So Ss23 and his girlfriend are back from their 7 country 2 week trip to Europe. We had given them $160 to use if they bought us any souvenirs so they wouldn't have to spend their own money. They wanted us to come over and have dinner and pick up the stuff they bought. So we bought their dinner and then went back to their new apartment.
The part that I'm having issue with (which shouldn't surprise me, I guess) is the framed pictures in Ss23's new apartment. All along the entrance wall there are framed pictures of the girlfriend's family and Ss23's family. A big picture of Dh and Ss23 at a baseball game and a picture of Ss23, Bm, Ss23's little sister and Bm's baby daddy. There is not one picture with me in it. It is like I don't exist.
I mentioned this to Dh after we left and he just said, "well, they never see you to take a picture." Um, that's not really true. It's just that I didn't go to places that they took pictures. There are things that I just let Dh go to because I wouldn't enjoy the activities and didn't want to damper the fun Dh would have with his son. Also, I didn't go to Ss23's graduation because we had a sick, senior dog at home and Ss23's school was 4 hours round trip. Dh would not have wanted to cut his day of celebration short to go home and take care of the dog and it would have ended up being a big fight. I had MIL take my place.
However, I'm the one who had a big graduation party for Ss23 at our house the next month. But I guess it wasn't a picture worthy event. Hmmm.
So, I guess I should just forget about it and go on about my business. No matter how Dh wants to spin it, I'm just not important and only an after thought of a person that comes along with Dh sometimes.
On another note, I'm expected to turn over my current iphone to Ss23 tomorrow when I get a new one. Maybe I should ask Ss23 to get one from somewhere else. Ha!!! Would never happen. Dh would have a fit!!! Ss23 has been complaining to Dh that he can't read his phone and the battery keeps dying.
Next time I will not have a weak momment and offer my phone to Ss23. I will just trade it in. The End.
