I don't think Im making an unreasonable request
We tried to set something up during a goodbye BBQ my parents hosted with all of the aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins, since we'd all be there that day and my cousin is a professional photographer, BUT, my husband wasn't there. He was in a trip to Philly to watch lacrosse games with his friends. So, we got my cousin to come out today to take pictures before my sisters husband has to leave to get back to Virginia in time to work tomorrow (he's been living there for months already). This time, my husband still won't be there because he's driving over an hour away to go mudding in his Jeep with his friends. He claims he's had this planned for a month, but its the first I'm hearing about it. I'm pissed because he won't be flexible and get back early in time for the photo at 1pm. He claims that its not a big deal and to just do the photos without him! It IS a big deal! He won't be in the family photo! And we could have already had it done, but waited for him! He says he's not letting his buddies down, but he's letting me and our family down. I'm very hurt and disappointed. I don't ask for much. I don't complain to him about how much time he spends out doing fun things because he is working overtime to support us, but this is too much. There is no reason he can't come home early or just miss it this time. Mud and Jeeps arent going anywhere. there will always be orher opportunities. And why does he need to drive over an hour away to go mudding?! It's been raining for days! Mud is everywhere!
This is really the last straw. Maybe it's a good thing he won't be in the family photo. Maybe he won't be part of this family much longer anyway.
