Ok, I couldn’t take it any more. I resorted to trickery. With FI’s approval, I logged into his FB account and found mommy dearest online. I sent a nice IM: “Hi Mrs. Crazy! Virginia and I were surprised to not hear back from you.” Mrs. Crazy seems shocked and claimed to never have gotten an email even though I had the correct email address. Okay, ’tis possible. Mrs. Crazy asked what the email was about. And I just blurted it out:
“My mom (FMIL) mentioned that the whole family was planning on coming, which is very nice. But because of space and whatnot, we will be inviting just you and Mr. Crazy. I hope you understand.”
And to this, what insanity did Mrs. Crazy spurt?
“LOL ok…..no problem at all. I certainly understand the space issue…I am helping to plan my neighbor’s wedding for her daughter. And, if you have to just have more immediate family I certainly understand, but would like to meet Virginia some day”
WOW. Mrs. Crazy made my jaw drop. So what’s the lesson of the day ladies? Give people the benefit of the doubt. Their actions may be out of stupidity rather than malice.
I definitely don’t *like* Mrs. Crazy. But hey–who likes everyone on their guest list? I’m taking a deep sigh of relief today. Happy Bride!
Thanks for your support though all of this!

I’m glad you took control of the situation! Whether or not she actually got the email… at least she’s not throwing a fit. Glad it worked out!

Well at least you don’t have to worry now. I find it funny that she didn’t seem as crazy as she did before. Maybe she was joking the entire time we all thought she was crazy or maybe she cuts the crazy off and on. lol

Yeah, wow, my jaw would have dropped at that response too! After all her fuss, she is completely understanding?
You sure it wasn’t hubby on her account? Just kidding. Glad it all worked out!

That is so awesome that it is so anti-climatic…
I was waiting for Mrs. Crazy to go off the deep end.
Better for you 🙂

My mom has a quote on her fridge that I like to remind myself of
“I will try to be less judgemental of myself and others”
It’s hard. It’s so easy to jump to conclusions. sometimes its good to remember the above quote and they to think about the situtation another way.
I am SO GLAD that it worked out and she isn’t trying to be an evil nasty woman

I love updates!! I can’t believe that! Is it possible that she is only Mrs. Crazy when she’s talking to you? Like dual personality? LOL, and when talking to your Fiance she suddenly becomes lucid. That is weird and hilarious! (Glad it’s all working out for you though! Big sigh of relief!)
