For the past two months, I've been planning to have my lifelong best friend come and stay with me. She just went through a divorce and wanted to move back into town with her 2 boys. DH and I agreed to let them stay here for a month or so until she found work and a place of her own. Well, it became and issue with my nosy MIL, who said it would ruin our lives, that she'd steal my man, etc. Whatever. So MIL and I are fighting now because she won't butt out regarding this situation.
I put a lot of effort into cleaning out a room for my friend to stay in, and even moved the camp trailor to the front of the house so her boys would have someplace to go for privacy. She left on this trip and got stranded halfway, about 7 hours away. She was stuck in some small town with all of her belongings in a broken down trailor and 2 boys and a cat. I wanted to take DH's truck to pick her up, but he said no. So now, DH and I are fighting. Anyway, she called me today to tell me that she had gone back home and isn't coming after all.
I can totally understand why she decided to go back, but I've just wasted all of this energy getting ready, and it would have all been so worth it had she arrived! Instead, I feel like someone just stuck a pin in me and I am utterly deflated. Now I'm feeling lonely because I was looking forward to this, and I'm fighting with my DH and MIL over something that turned out to be nothing!
