I appreciate my spouse's support and caring about 360 days a year.
(with a few rare exceptions) on my birthday,Christmas,our wedding
anniversary,Valentine's Day and Mother's Day he either totally ignores
the occasion or makes a half hearted effort that is even less appealing
than ignoring it would be.
I am going to get to sit back and
watch SC's boyfriend, and one day in the future JR's shower them
w/flowers,gifts and other whatnot and will just have to deal with it.
as I've had to endure multiple Christmases @ my in-laws where my
brother in law showers my sister-in-law with stuff--a process made more
unendurable by the fact that she innocently wants to videotape us
opening gifts one by one. And I generally get--zip. The one thing I hate
about the holiday.
Truthfully, my hope is that the men in
their lives will treat them right the other 360 days a year, which I
know full well matters most of all.
But it rankles. And it always will.
