So this morning my husband got the following text from her:
"Please tell your wife that I relieve her of any obligation she may feel to contact me for anything. It's more than obvious that doing so is distasteful to her. Please do not make her call or text me as I will not answer. Love you always."
What the fuck? For one she is not my mom. Her son called her. My parents don't expect DH to call them on their birthdays. Second, we generally get along okay - we don't have much in common, but we've never had a actual argument. She was just here visiting in June and everything went fine. There is no reason for her to jump to sending nasty-grams.
I haven't tried reaching out to her today. DH tried calling her earlier but she didn't answer.
