So..my birthday is REALLY important to me (as is everyone's birthday) and I have just been informed that my FI will be going away for Christmas and won't be back for my birthday (December 28).
I would be more understanding if my FMIL was not super strict about everyone being present for her birthday. We accidentally planned her birthday a day in advance and she wasn't happy about that...wanted to hold off the celebration until the next day (which the cake that I ordered would've been all yuck by then) and just made it difficult and finally gave in but was upset about it.
Well...she told FI that "I could manage to have my birthday without him" and "it's not a big deal". Usually...I would be sort of upset but just brush it off...but the fact that she was SO psycho about hers this year makes me kind of ticked off.
I know some of you probably think that this isn't justified but she just seems to think that things that involve me aren't important. I know this is her first son that she's "losing" but seriously...I'd like to feel like she semi-cares about my feelings. Sometimes it seems like she does things to annoy me on purpose.
