My monster in law creates stress and anxiety with every breath, especially since our conversation about 3 weeks after Dday. She was convinced the only way to save our marriage was with her help cleaning and redecorating our house, I also have no business asking H questions like who he’s been screwing after 18 years of marriage, that’s his problem not mine. So things have been a little tense since then. So this weekend she’s criticizing my relationship with my parents, after dropping my jaw I left.
This weekend we’re taking the RV camping (purchased by my MIL partly to save our marriage 🙄. ) H was planing on going a day early and have everything set up for us when we got there Friday. So, all week I’ve been trying to figure out why he wants to spend the night alone. There are the logical obvious reasons like He’ll wake up Friday morning virtually at work and gets to sleep late. But my brain couldn’t leave it alone and the anxiety kept getting worse. So after I suggest staying with him tonight and leaving the kids with MIL he says he thought of that too. So tonight I’m going camping and will also wake up slightly closer to work Friday, he’s picking the kids up after school Friday and taking them grocery shopping for the trip. We talked about my anxiety and the fact that what he did is constantly in my mind. Eventually he tells me he invited the guy he’s working with Friday to come tonight and have a few beers but forgot to invite his wife. I didn’t expect to be this freaked out about him traveling alone this close to home but it snuck up on me. He’s taking this amazingly well and taking all the responsibility for my stress but I think he’d prefer I just yell at him occasionally.
