Basically Ignoring DH
I know I should just ignore this and not let it bother me but it bothers DH so it affects my mood especially since we are all stuck in lockdown. The Skids left and went to another state with some of their maternal family almost 2 weeks ago to self-isolate together. As the place where they went is rural, Skids excuse have been that they have limited cell-service and it is patchy so they can’t get in contact with DH so on so forth. That makes sense right? But Skids have been constantly posting images and videos on social media of them hiking, riding horses with their cousins all times of the day and I would think you would need Wi-Fi or something to post it. However, they can only send sporadic replies to DH messages. You would think in this time, with the pandemic and all, they would try to reach out to DH. Not once have they initiated contact.
Anyway SD birthday just passed and she posted on social media that ‘This has been one of my greatest birthdays surrounded by some of the kindest, loving and at times annoying bunch I call family. Although there wasn’t much of an out on the town night, lockdown has shown me true happiness comes from feeling and expressing the love for family. Family doesn’t have to be bonded by blood; it is the people that you call once (maybe three times) a day for hours on end because you want to make sure they are doing okay or aren’t lonely. It’s the people that bake you a cake (some virtually) and sing horrendously because it is your birthday and they want to celebrate with you online. I am so grateful to everyone who has done so much to make this day special for me especially Grammy who ran around and made sure she got the ingredients to make this amazing cake for me even though she did not have to. It really shows me the depth of community far exceeds the limitations of geography, as so many of you, my family, took the time to throw me a virtual party on zoom. Thank You all and I love You!’
Now based on this post I would think that SD at least has the capacity to get in contact with DH and receive contact from DH. They simply refuse to do so. Even on her birthday where all this FaceTime and Zoom supposedly went on, DH could not reach her. He is disappointed that they are being blatantly rude, dismissive and are ignoring him.
They didn’t even let him know they were leaving the state to shelter elsewhere. Which to be fair they are adults they do not have to explain their actions but it would have been courteous especially with what is going on in the world right now to tell DH as he is worries about them. They just show so much disregard for DH feelings you know.
