YSD does it again
So today in the mail arrives YSD's annual 'Christmas Calendar' that she sends out to everyone. Every month with pictures of herself and her family
It includes the dates of everyone's birthday's etc... including BM, SSIL's parents, DH & I (last year she had mine on the wrong day that apparently she felt "sooooo bad" about) Good one
This year, she has included pictures of BM with herself and the grandkids, as well as her MIL and FIL
None of DH & I
DH of course was just happy to receive the calendar full of pictures and mentioned it was probably all pics from last year and since we weren't able to visit them last year due to the Pandemic that's probably why
I don't buy it
YSD absolutely loves to stick it to us, me in particular.
Based on the crap she just pulled for my birthday, and of course the humilation of her FB posting on Mother's Day to BM and YSD's MIL, excluding me from the post even though I've been in her life for 24 years, fallen over backwards for many of those years, but her MIL of just a few years gets the wonderful Happy Mother's Day post love-you-so-much-don't-know-what-we-would-do-without-you yada yada post along with BM
Real kick in the teeth for me, her SM of all these years who tried so hard and truly did so much for all those years. That is something very hard to forgive or forget
So no DH, I don't buy that the only reason she left us out - the only two grandparents not on the caledar - was because BM and SSiL's parents had visited them last year and we hadn't
Sure, as sneaky and passive aggressive as YSD is, it could be assumed that was why. But I know her. I know how she makes a point of always doing things that somehow exclude DH and most especially, always me and I'm sure it was deliberate.
And really, how hard would it have been to include a pic or two of DH & I, even if they weren't from last year? We've certainly visited years prior, and done lots for YSD and her family.
I know as always I should just ignore it all and that is what I aim to do.
Glad I'm disengaged from her and no longer fall over backwards to do anything for her or her family any longer
I will simply pleasantly smile and wave, and happily go back to my life now thank you very much!
