Yelled at and humiliated in front of the in-laws ***edit
Just because I dared to pause the football game right before it started. We are currently staying with his family for the holidays...my husband stayed up all night talking with his dad and a buddy. He didn't get up until 12:30 today...meanwhile me and my older son were refereeing our 4 year old and his cousin all morning long (also 4 years old). The cousin is big for his age and aggressive, so it's been a challenge to say the least! Well, a minute before the game starts, the boys locked themselves in the bathroom. I asked my husband to get them out, since I've already had to break them up enough times this morning (my SIL, cousin's mom, is MIA). He didn't want to, saying his game was coming on. So I paused the tv, and said get them out, the game hasn't started anyway (and it hasn't, they hadn't even started playing the opening music! They hadn't even shown the field!). Well, he started yelling at me with his dad right there, saying I knew how much football means to him, and how he hates getting interrupted during a game. He was full-on screaming at me. I said being a parent and family should always come before football, and he didn't have to treat me like that, the game hadn't even started yet! I feel so humiliated. I hate that I'm even here, I hate coming here and he knows it, it's not enough that I follow him all around the world because he's in the military, but I come anyway, or he makes me feel really guilty. I hate that when it's football season or he's playing a video game, I am only second place...the kids are 3rd and 4th. And he wonders why I hate football..!
**edit- there seems to be an issue regarding me even touching the remote? I get free rein over the tv's here at the in-laws house, just like everybody else. (Well, I guess except pausing a football game that hasn't started yet lol) I also do my share of cooking and cleaning and dishwashing. It may not be my house, but my in-laws have always insisted for me to help myself to whatever, and feel free to do whatever. FIL didn't really care about the game, he has a different team than DH...he was only watching because DH wanted him to.
