One moment of honest stupidity
I have been actively disengaging from SD and her brats over the last 12 months or so and DH has been disappointed and trying to include me in visits to the SD and her spawn which I have been avoiding with some success. I thought things were going pretty well, until my moment of stupidity.
However recently SDs husband and my husband have started a renovation project together at our house (against my better judgement and voiced opposition), this led to an argument between DH and I about the project, basically SDs husband tried to redesign my design for a new bathroom and I was (i think fairly) unimpressed by those suggestions and said so. DH has taken this to mean that I hate SD and her husband, the moment of honesty and stupidity came during the ensuing argument when DH asked me "why do you hate her?", instead of answering "I don't" I said "she is boring, has two subjects to talk about her mother and kids. Neither of which I am interested in and when I do have to go there you leave me in the kitchen with her and the brats, to have a good time with her husband, it's not that I hate her it's that she is so boring!!!!!"
I know I should have walked away from the argument in the first place, been more firm in my opposition to the bloody renovation and definitely kept my opinion about SD princess and her boringness to myself but I didn't and now I am having to deal with DH constantly trying to repair the non existent relationship between his princess and me. He even thinks that fortnightly dinner at our house will be an option which it's not from my point of view.
My question for you lovely people is: How do you deal with your SO not understanding your point of view?
Honestly if I met this girl-woman in a social situation I would make an excuse and walk away within seconds.
