Sorry, just needed to vent to fellow dreadies and submerge myself in a positive environment right now
Oh dear, it seems as if I'm going to be staying in our bedroom tonight again, away from any social activity with the soon to be mom-in-law.
She just informed me that the reason why she is so upset about the situation is not because my child's well being is being threatened, but because she is worried that this might lead to gossip from other parents at the daycare, which may make it's way to her workplace, with will then reflect negatively on her and any possibility of promotion, raise, or that they might fire her for it. She also expressed to me that "you just don't understand how stressed I am about this, because it isn't affecting just you, now I might have to deal with gossip at work. Gossip, Mandy! I'm sorry, but I just don't deal with the stress of gossip very well."
I nearly flipped out. I think you could see steam coming from my ears...
I'm not sure if I can deal with all this. Is anyone here very good at positive affirmations or long distance energy work? Because I could sure use some positive energy right now.
