I feel like the board complainer lately. Every thread I start is a "woe is me" thread. I just need to get this out though.
My SIL is a flake. Last year I had a miscarriage (while on vacation in Yellowstone so not exactly convenient to say the least) and when we got back it was very close to my birthday. I was depressed and emotional obviously. My SIL told DH she wanted to come visit on my birthday of all days. DH had to work all day so my sister and I cleaned my house like the Pope was visiting and I made no plans to do anything for my bday because my SIL only visits once every couple years if that. She lives about 2 hours away. All day passed and she never showed up. I was so mad because it was my freaking birthday and I really needed to have a happy day as the miscarriage really had me down still. She never called either. By the time I saw her next it was Christmas and I didn't say anything about my disappointment. I figured it was not a big deal and I was just being emotional.
This year I had a c/s 2 days before my bday. Guess who planned to come visit on my bday again? Seriously. She just happened to be down visiting someone else and thought she would stop by. Can you guess if she came or not? Of course she didn't! This time she at least called several hours later to say she wasn't coming. I was still mad though. Your plans are so important (a surprise bday party for a relative of her new boyfriend) that it trumps your only biological brother's newborn? If anyone remembers my last post, my mom and sister also bailed out on me for my birthday and I was really depressed about that as well. So all of this together had me really sad.
So I just get a FB message from her saying she'll be in my area again this weekend (another weekend DH works) and wants to know when is a good time to come over. Um, how about NEVER! I'm sick of cleaning up the house while battling my super emotions (and not to mention the spinal headache I have today) just for her to blow me off again. I'm having DH deal with it because it's his sister after all and if I say something I'm probably going to snap.
Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. My emotions are all over the place lately (with good reason) and I have no one else I can tell IRL or they would end up ratting me out.
