I can't believe this, I feel like a little kid. We are having some friends and family over Friday, partly for my birthday, partly for my in-laws (just got back from a long trip), partly just because it's been a long time since people have been over, and partly because DH leaves for China in a couple of weeks... So, just got out of the shower and there is a howling message on my voice-mail from my sister in law (DH's brother's wife). Starts out all chatty, can I bring anything over Friday, what time should we be there, will be good to see G & J (my in-laws).... then she adds, like it's an afterthought, "oh, I heard a weird rumor that G & J brought you back a birkin from Paris....I know that can't be true, right? I mean that would be ridiculous...worse, I heard you asked for it. I am sure it's not true, at least I hope not, because that would be horribly rude. It's not about the $, god knows G & J have always been generous with everyone...but....anyway, like I said, I am sure it's just a rumor...just thought you might want to set the record straight. Ok, gotta run, be sure and let me know what I can bring for your big day." And she says big day, very sarcastic. OMG! What a :censor: I am seriously fuming! I don't even know how to respond to this! I am going to the gym, again...if I don't know burn off some of this anger, I am going to say something like...."well, so what if they did, it still wouldn't have cost, 1/10 as much as they spent sending your husband to re-hab, 3 times!! And speaking of rude, can you stop calling G & J everytime you two have a fight. Really, do you think it's helpful to call your husband's mommy and daddy to tattle on a man over 50!! :censor: Ladies, seriously need some calm approiate words, before Friday night turns into a nightmare.
