Roger that.

Good thinking. I don’t believe you ever wanted to be fawned upon, just decently thanked and your efforts recognised. She did you a favour in a convoluted way lol.

Sorry that happened to you OP. Sometimes I find people are like this because they weren’t raised to know any better. My mom raised me to always write thank you notes and always be grateful for people doing things for me. Just had my wedding shower and I gave each hostess a gift with a thank you card. My future mother in law flew out to surprise me and I wrote her a heartfelt thank you card and mailed it to her when we got back. 

Its just what I was raised to do. I wouldn’t be surprised if your sil just doesn’t know any better and doesn’t thank anyone much if at all. Did you get her a wedding gift? Did anyone else you know? I’d Ask them If she ever sent thank you notes because I would guess no. 

In my experience when this happens it just reminds me how important it is to teach your children manners and I plan to pass that to my kids.

she said how excited she was, hugged and thanked you and everyone had a great time and it was clearly appreciated… what more could you possibly want?

sounds like your hankering for special praise or gifts etc… but its not a saintly act to throw a party, you chose to do this.

Not trying to be harsh but this just kind of makes you sound a bit self involved and high maintenance, you not suppose to do these things for unending praise and a gratitude its just a basic thing that millions of people do and non of its about you.
