Vandal needs to give my hubby some pointers.
I mentioned to my hubby that our 30th Wedding Anniversary was coming up and what did he want to do. I bounced around a few ideas and thought we could have some fun planning a day to spend together, Nope nada, zip, zilch. After hearing what my friends husband had planned and what Vandal had planned for their anniversary, I was left somewhat disheartened and felt unloved.
I recieved a text and hubby inquired as to what it was...
I replied, "Our DIL wishing us a Happy Anniversary"
He said, 'Oh, Happy Anniversary"
That was it... no hugs, no kiss, nothing else. Just a flat, off-handed 'Oh, Happy Anniversary"
I wallowed in pity for a bit,limited my participation on SP, but did not eat over it.
What helped me is that I kind of saw this coming. Heck... I've been married to him for 30 years, I should know by now, don't you think? Still it did sting a bit, I had pictured a romantic dinner, reminiscing about the past 30 years.... ah, it was but a dream.
Reality can really suck sometimes. But my reaction and actions are my choice. What "did not" happen is not the end of the world.
