From my previous post, you all know about my friend/co-worker's opinion about my upcoming Chicago trip in the fall. Well, she is still objecting to said trip. Last Sunday, we had our three year-old's birthday party. My friend got together with my BIL(who I don't get along with) and told him about the trip.
Of course, he being who he is and takes every opportunity to criticize me, carried on with her for a good 15 minutes. They made fun of me, my judgment, my online friends, Twilight, the trip, and on and on and on. It got so bad that I had to walk away and leave them there discussing my sanity with my poor husband. UGH!!
Now, I don't really care what they think. I really never have, but I felt like the venue for their venting was highly inappropriate. The one good thing was that at least most of the party participates had left(because my friend arrived 1 1/2 hours late for the party).
I have to say this about my wonderful husband, though. He has been supportive about this trip from virtually the beginning. He did ask at first if there were going to be any guys staying with us and I reassured him that "no" and if there were they would be gay anyway. After a quirk of his eyebrow, he laughed and said "ok.". And okay it is. He has faith in me that I am not going to go to Chicago, or New York, or anywhere else and get kidnapped or such. He believes that I am a grown woman who can take care of myself. It does help that I can be a raging bitch at times and meaner than a stripped snake, but that's a topic for another post.
To wrap up this ongoing rant I am on this morning, I want to say that I love my online friends who don't judge me or question my common sense(at least most of the time) and that I LOVE my hubby who is the ONLY person in the world who knows absolutely EVERYTHING about me from my fanfic obsession to my love of boy porn. :D
