I didn't call my parents this weekend.
This morning I called my Mom. First thing she says is "So, it was a weekend to ditch your parents? We figured you went to the racing event with Honeybun's parents." She tried to make it sound like a joke, but her tone was all bite. She's upset I didn't come to visit. It's only been two weeks since I've seen them, and I call twice every weekday. She's upset I spent time with Honeybun's parents at all. She sees it as a betrayal. Whenever I talk to her, she sounds disinterested in my life that has anything to do with Honeybun - which is a lot considering he is my boyfriend and we live together.
She keeps saying she's happy I'm going on a work-vacation in June. "You'll be away from everything." It's /very/ clear that by "everything" she means Honeybun. She's happy he can't come with me.
My best friend thinks it's time I set boundaries with my parents. But can I gently inform my mother that she can either choose my happiness or lose me? I love them both with all of my heart, but Mom's constant disinterest/disappointment in Honeybun hurts...
