Okay, I don't usually bring up personal issues but this really irks me..
This weekend we are doing a family weekend thing at a Lake Cottage, all the SIL's , MIL, BIL, everyone, our kids and all.
Well my BIL's girlfriend told my husband and I that she was "sending" my BIL along with us to the Lake because she wanted to go up earlier" She didn't even ask if we had room for him, she just basically said "she was sending him with us".. like he was a piece of baggage.
This really bugged me so I called her and told her that we would love to bring him but we didn't have room.. She then offered to bring some of our stuff up with her so we would have room for him .. THE NERVE ! I said "no thanks" I would prefer to keep all of our stuff together so I know where everything is when I get there. I'm just anal about stuff like that.
I don't mean to sound picky but really, why couldn't she wait until he is finished working and drive up together. When my husband and I were dating, I wouldn't dream of driving up to the cottage without him, but then we didn't live together.
It's like she is "acting" like they are married and I think she just really wants to "suck up" to the in-laws because they are driving up early too. OK, you guys tell me if I shouldn't be making such a big deal out of it. Did I do the right thing? or should I have just made room for him and let her push me around???
