Wedding isn’t until may, we have a little less than 4 months.
My sister is currently texting me asking a million questions about the logistics of the day and the schedule for the bus the night of the wedding because my 2 year old nephew will have to leave early with his dad.
I know this, there are about 20 kids on the guestlist, they’re all going to have to leave early. Booking the bus is low on my list of priorities, they’re not hard to come by around here, especially for a saturday night.
I don’t have the patience for this right now and I have to keep erasing the text messages I’m writing becuase I know I’m being really short with her but I really don’t need to be bugged about the schedule for her 2 year old right now. Honestly, not really my problem – I’m arranging a bus for people – it will be worked out, you will have the schedule when I get it done.

@MsGinkgo: My sister was just starting on me for ridiculous details the other day – before I snapped and hurt her feelings I just told her that I’ll have certain tasks planned for certain days. She was being really pushy about finding out the menu for example so I told her that isn’t going to be finalized until August – she is now off my back about it.

@JessicaJupiter: like seriously – I mean people expect me to be organized and know things, beause that’s what I do. But if I say I don’t know yet STOP ASKING.
She’s now asking about taking her son to the zoo on Thursday – the day of the rehearsal. The zoo is clear the other side of the city, a city they don’t know and are terrified to drive in.
They’re going to be here for at least 2 days AFTER the wedding, take him after. Seriously. So annoyed.

@MsGinkgo: This sounds like a classic case of “talk, don’t text”. I advise that you call her and have a conversation, and as part of it explain what you said here: that it will be organised but you’ve got a lot on your plate right now. I think a 10 minute conversation would be better than a dozen texts.
As for the zoo: so long as she’s there for the rehearsal, I don’t think you need to worry about what she does in the day.

@paula1248: oh I’d lose it on her if I was talking to her right now. I just don’t have patience at the moment.
Thing with the zoo is that I know her and I know her FH, I also know this city pretty well. Odds are, if they go to the zoo on Thursday – they’ll be late for the rehearsal.
