- Wedding: October 2011
This may have several issues in one….let’s start out by saying my mother is high maintanence and sees everything through the lens of “How does this make effect me directly?” So….that being said…
I knew she’d throw fits left and right so I gave her the decorating for the reception to handle solo. She’s pulled in aunts and the like to help. She’s got amazing taste and I trust her with it. PLUS, it keeps her busy. She has made nasty comments about my weight since I was a zygote, and finally stopped when my fiancee and I began working out together and I’ve been working on it pretty consistenly. That part may be over with for now (don’t hold your breath!) She has called me twice in a twisted rage over this small thing or another. Both times I totally freaked and hung up on her after yelling something like “Don’t be involved then!” My mother is a narcissistic bear of a person to be around. She puts other people down to make herself feel better and is a typical bully. Does that help me handle her knowing that? Of course not! I still feel stung and hurt every single time she calls me screaming about how she’s not paying for this or that (she hasn’t given us anything except for whatever decor she’s purchased thus far). I keep hearing about how she can’t invite her friends (We’re already over our allowed people that can fit into the reception hall! And all of her fam will be there!) And did I forget to mention it’s a lesbian wedding? Now if that isn’t somehow the greatest insult to her I don’t know what is. Her homophobia knows no bounds. It’s still fairy traditional, minus the groom.
I digress…guess I needed a Momzilla vent. Fear not, she’ll be calling me again soon screaming about some ridiculous thing. Oi!
