I am trying to choose positivity at the moment. My dh, without checking with me first, invited my mil and fil down for the weekend which is MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND. So on my actual birthday guess what I get to do? I get to clean the house and sweep and mop and make up the guest bed just in case and clean all the bathrooms and sort and tidy all JoJo's things. I am annoyed. But I will simply have to deal with it because it is already done. But seriously, ON MY BIRTHDAY!!! I really don't like spending time with these people because all they do is drink and watch sports and it will be ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!
But really I am most worried because he already gave them permission to keep JoJo overnight at their hotel. The last time they were in town and tried this they got so drunk that my MIL had trouble walking and I had to say that JoJo was too tired. I asked my dh to ask them not to drink and he is just such an enabler to them. He said "Oh, my mom isn't drinking that much anymore because of her diet." I said, "She was drinking last time!" He said "Oh, that was my fault." He wasn't forcing her to do beer bongs or anything - she was the one who chose to drink 4 whiskeys on the rocks followed up with 3 glasses of wine at dinner.
I don't know how to handle this. We already have a dinner party at a restaurant and karaoke afterwards scheduled so I can't really say that we will just stay in so that I can keep an eye on how much they are drinking before they take JoJo to their hotel. I don't know what to do.
