- Wedding: June 2013
So, in an attempt to figure budget and accommodations, I asked family members if they think they will be able to make my destination wedding in June. Just a yes or no was all I needed to also let vendors/wedding planner have an idea. I now feel like beating my head on the wall. Who would have thought that a simple question would result in being asked about 1000! My sister in law (brother’s wife) was full of them! How much for this, how much for that, how much how much how much? Even asking me if they need passports and how does she get one? Hello, weren’t you planning on moving to Germany before my brother got recruiter duty?? Didn’t your daughter JUST go to Belize this summer? Last I checked, you need a passport to go to both those countries. Did she not look at the cost then? I told her they’re $135 because I have to get one myself. Then she asks me where does she get one. Um, y’all are MOVING in November. How the hell do I know where in your new town you need to go to get a passport? “The post office does them as far as I know.” And she wants to know what she needs to do to get one. Y’all, this is the same person that is full of advice for me anytime she thinks my kids don’t behave, any time something is broken or wrong, she knows how to fix it, she’s full of “neat” ideas and crafts like it’s going out of style, finds all this “cool” stuff online, so please tell me how Miss Know It All can’t figure out how to google “passports” and “air flights” ??? She’s on pintrest and facebook and words with friends, etc, all day. Does she really not know how to look up other stuff? She wants to know how much is a plane ticket. I don’t know. I’m not paying for airfare for them. I don’t know what city they will be in after moving and I know she’s moving and is full of those plans. I will, however, find different choices for hotels/rentals and pass them along because that I feel is my responsibility. Also, we want to help cover food and any transportation costs on island. But is it really my job to look up every single airline schedule and price and know what connections and prices off the top of my head? I doubt they are even going to come because I know it’s hard to have money after you move. I really can’t have everyone’s schedule all laid out and figure prices for this that and the other. I’m already stressed and tired and I am so thankful my mom is helping me keep sane! It’s mostly my SIL that drives me nuts, I just wanna tell her “nevermind, I don’t want you to be more stressed. We will send pics!” siiiiiiiigh….it’s going to get worse, isn’t it?
