- Wedding: September 2010
I’m just incredibly sad… like deep down sad, and my FI doesn’t understand. In fact, he’s getting irritated at me, saying my being sad is making it impossible to be excited for the wedding…
He has a very small immediate family (2 parents, 1 brother… an aunt, an uncle, 4 cousins). All live in town, excepting 1 cousin. That one cousin is the only one not coming to the wedding (it’s actually Neil Patrick Harris, and we kind of expected that, it being in the middle of shooting schedule and all…). I have a much larger family group (mom, bio-dad in Ohio, step-dad, 4 siblings and we’ll not count the aunts, uncles, and cousins) ALL of whom live out of state since I picked up and moved 3 years ago.
So, I have some second cousins who can’t make it due to health issues. My great-uncle who can’t make to due to health issues, which I was disappointed about, I ADORE this uncle… And I haven’t let that get to me. But this week I got a double whammy. My mom finally called my father in Ohio since he wasn’t replying to email, turns out he can’t come. Health and money problems. And I hurt for him more than myself… he’s missed so much of my life that missing this must kill him. FI says I’ll have my step-father there, so I’m not missing out on anything, but still. It’s my DAD. And now one of my sisters can’t come. She’s having a C-Section on the 3rd and the wedding’s the 25th and she can’t figure out the traveling.
I don’t know how not to be sad about this! Just looking for an outlet for FI’s sake.
