His mom is staying in our house for the next week. Because both of her boys play WoW and she lives out of state, she has started playing as well. . . to connect with her boys and feel like she "fits in" with a group.
This morning I woke up to her playing the game on my husband's computer and my daughter sitting on her lap. I couldn't believe it. I told her "its not personal, but I don't want her sitting on your lap while you play". She got off of the game almost immediately (but with absolutley no embarressment). I don't think that she plays nearly as excessively as my husband, but because he and his brother play-- it only reinfornces that it is perfectly fine pass time. The Mother in Law once told me "well at least he isn't at the bar drinking or picking up other women"!!! Are those my choices? Gaming, drinking or womanizing- gaming such an innocent hobbby- I guess I should be grateful that I am such a lucky lady (the synacism and anger is strong in me today).
My husband even tried to pick a fight about a bill that was accidently paid late by me. . . I think it was his sorry attempt to try to make it seem like our problem is about money (deflecting from the REAL issue between us).
I feel like its me against the husband and his Mommy who is willing to defend and fight his battles for him. I still have refrained from stating the true issue at hand. . . I know my husband knows deep down, but is grasping at any other weakness in our marriage to try to deflect from the true problem.
