It has been a BUSY weekend.
I met B’s mom for the first time on Friday night– after dating him for more than 2 years! She lives a plane ride away and he’s only been there once since we started dating. I was super nervous because historically, mothers do not love me. Or even like me.
Serious bf #1’s mom liked me ok… until she found out I wasn’t Catholic. Then she told her son he would go to hell if he stayed with me. AWESOME.
Serious bf #2’s mom liked me ok… until she found out I was liberal. There were many attempts to tear us apart over the 5 years that we were together, but that’s not interesting enough to get into.
So I was pretty much just waiting to see which thing about myself (that I can’t change) B’s mom would hate. But she didn’t! That I know of so far anyways. I made dinner and it went pretty well! Everything tasted good, the awkward pauses were few and far between. Most importantly– she seemed normal! She actually reminded me a lot of my mom. She complimented my house and my cooking, she teased B, she was outgoing and fun.
I’ve always said that I don’t care who my in-laws are and they don’t need to like me or vice versa… but goodness would it be easier if we DID like each other! It was pretty exciting that I actually liked her and she seemed to like me. Crazy concept! I’m meeting B and her for dinner and a show tonight, so lets hope I don’t say anything stupid.
Also this weekend– I drove to my parents’ house to surprise my mom for mom’s day. I got there around 12 yesterday and she was VERY surprised, it was awesome. We did some shopping, saw a movie, and got dinner, all in all a very nice day.
The only problem is that between cooking and entertaining B’s mom, surprising mine, and now meeting up with B/mom tonight, I have almost no time to relax this weekend! Which is pretty much my favorite weekend activity. But– I guess it’s all good because both of our moms had really nice Mothers’ Day weekends.
