good news and then crazy stuff

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

good morning - Lost weight - I was on a plateau for 3 weeks. Yea!! emoticon Talked to a travel agent who I have worked with for years. We can get a travel voucher but she says to wait - if we wait to make a decision this summer, - they might have suspended our trip so we can get a full refund. That is what we are going to do. They are suspending tours now. emoticon Now the crazy part, my DS text me that he wants to bring my GD over Thursday but we have to understand the new rules. He has to stay with us and monitor us so we do not say anything negative to GD about her mother. I told him we are adults - we do not get a GD involved in your drama. But I said no thank you - you are insulting. My DIL is really losing it. DS is trapped in such a lousy marriage but it is his choice. My DS is not happy with us. We both need to step back from the craziness. I can tell from the text my DS is not doing well. Who would live with a person that is not rational. That is his problem. this has been going on for years and it gets very old. I am upbeat, positive, and in control. DH and I are doing great. DH used to just stay on the outside and I took all the stress from my DS and his situations. DH is now engaged. It has helped me greatly. DH has my back and he is willing to speak his mind about the situation. I have thanked him. I am grateful for DH's support -this situation can be so exhausting. It has been going on for years. I have to let go and move on. All I know that I will live one day at a time with a positive future for my DH & I. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Have a wonderful day! I will.

    Good to have the support of DH.
    Maybe the united front will have an effect on DS

    The only reason DIL wants to monitor you is because she feels guilty and knows she is the one who is doing wrong. She just doesn't want to be called out for it. Sorry you can't have a positive influence on your DGD any other way.

    Oh going thru similar situation w/DD. My soon to be ex-SIL is looney toons. Tried to get DD to see that, but to no avail, and anyway, hard but have to step away from the drama. Good DH has your back.

    I'd be insulted, too, if told "I have to be there so you don't say anything bad about my wife." Lord!

    HUGS and good luck.

    I totally understand. Glad you have been able to let go a bit. I have a situation that is similar and exhausting, but I've had to totally disconnect as it was making me sick. Have a good day.
