- Wedding: September 2014 - Garden outside our church
While trying to schedule my residency interviews, I asked dearest when his granddaughter’s (who is also my 4th cousin once removed) first birthday celebration would be so we could not schedule at that time. He called later all excited because his daughter-in-law had send this adorable invitation to him….he read it to me, commenting how cute my cousin is, etc. (She is adorable–very creative and talented and adores his son and is the best mom a 22 year-old can be). But there is NO mention of me on the invitation. It’s not like I’m some unknown–sweetie and I have been together since his son started dating the girl he dated before her. I was not invited to their wedding, and they came to his house one day, saw I was there, walked away, and didn’t talk to him for 4 months. On the other hand, I have been to their house every time I’ve been in town for the last year, was there for the birth, have been as close to a grandma as a 34 year-old can be. The baby recognizes me as a non-stranger, and I’m planning mug next step I training based on being near her. Am I wrong to feel a kick-in-the-gut about this?!
