Back from vacation
So we got back from our vacation last night and it is good to be home! In case any of you were wondering, there were a handful of photos at bf’s dad’s house. Now in his dad’s defense it is not his home, but was bf’s grandparent’s home we stayed at and his dad has been living at. His dad got surgery in July and was staying at his deceased parent’s home instead of his own because it was next door to his sister and was easier for her to check in on him. The photos were in the sitting room on a chest on the opposite side of the house and until recently his dad was unable to get that far on his own and who knows the last time he actually went in that room. The house has also been vacant since bf’s grandmother passed away almost 4 years ago. So I wasn’t mad, sure it sucked to see them, but bf shredded them all immediately and without me having to ask. I wasn’t mad at his dad either because honestly it just wasn’t something he had thought of and there’s tons of photos of all the cousins, siblings, grand children, etc. so it wasn’t an intentional thing so that was the first night I saw those, but they are gone now so nothing to get upset over.
Only one person out of all the family members I met mentioned anything remotely about BM. We got to see bf’s cousin that he had no idea moved back from Australia with his wife and kids so that was a nice surprise as it is bf’s favorite cousin. Majority of his family we saw was on the side of the family bf actually likes and is totally normal so that was good. Bf’s sister on the other hand was the one who brought up BM. She came over and about 15 minutes into her visit she was asking about when bf has SD and how the custody schedule works. Then she goes “what was BM’s name again?” and then neither bf or I say a word and then she goes “oh it’s *BM’s name* I always forget, haha.” Needless to say 5 minutes later bf and I left to go to a brewery and that was the last time we saw her the whole trip. Bf was pissed because it’s pretty evident she did it to be a b***h especially when she didn’t ask about BM’s other child or anything else, so she’s been told more than she wanted to pretend and there was absolutely no reason to be asking about what her name is or anything.
So finally two years later, meeting bf’s family has happened. Luckily no drama besides the whole sister thing and I don’t really count the photos as drama. The family I met I really liked and it seemed like they really liked me so all in all was a good trip. I am oh so happy though that bf has no intentions of moving back to his hometown or really his home state, because it really isn’t anywhere I would want to be for a long period of time.
