Okay, I never have great expectations for my birthday. Each year I'd rather avoid the whole thing. I'm annoyed today about what happened on my birthday yesterday. I've had a very rocky relationship with my inlaws for years. We kind of do the best we can when we are together, but we don't choose to be social with each other. Well, last week my husband and I decided that we would take his grandmother out for lunch for her birthday, which was the 13th. The only day available for the three of us was yesterday on my birthday. I was okay with that. I like his grandmother. Sunday, my husband tells me that he screwed up and invited his sister - who I really would rather stay away from. I knew that his mother would follow. So, yesterday on my birthday I had lunch with my husband's grandmother, mother and sister. It was okay and took only an hour and a half. But today, I'm irritated. We have had many conversations about keeping our lives separate from his family. He did acknowledge that it wasn't the best situation. I may be overreacting, but I'm tired of feeling last.
