Well, it wasn’t easy but I made it through my youngest SIL’s baby shower. I have not attended a baby shower in almost 2 years and before that I only went to my BF’s. I just boycotted all of them. I felt a little bad going as I did not go to my oldest SIL’s shower a year and a half ago but circumstances were different. Of course I had no one to complain to when I thought she was acting totally lame but it wasn’t too hard to just keep my feelings to myself and my mouth shut. I had lots of chips and salsa to eat and my niece’s great sense of humor to keep me occupied. Plus my BIL showed up later so I chatted with him in the back room to get away from it all. No tears shed and my husband actually texted me to see how I was doing, so to me it was a decent day.
