Can I just say that I really don’t like my family sometimes, specifically my dad’s sister and her kids. They make everything so difficult because they believe the whole world revolves around them. They think them being a few hours late to my great-grandmother’s 100th birthday is more tragic (their actual word) then my sister and I missing it completely. My 15 year old cousin has a volleyball game on Saturday (and I would just like to point out she has no plans on continuing to play volleyball after high school because basketball is what she really likes) and would be late so they insisted on having it on Sunday but my sister has an 8 hour shift and I am helping throw a baby shower on Sunday. I made the plans and my sister didn’t take off work because we were told Saturday was best for them. They aren’t even helping with the party, just showing up.
My mom is wreck because of it and she doesn’t know what to do, it’s not even her family, she said she would plan it to help my dad’s mom. They change plans all the time; we can’t even plan a get together without one of them starting some sort of drama. I would think a 100th birthday is more important than a 15 year old’s volleyball game. They had a huge fit over having it on Saturday and have been blowing up my mom’s phone for three days. I would go to my grandma but a part of me is afraid that she will in a way choose them over us because she bends over backwards for them all the time. I really think she will just say to have it on Sunday to make it easier on them. There is no changing plans for my sister and me, she already took off Saturday and invites have already been sent for the baby shower. I just don’t know what to do, I want to make it easier on my mom by saying don’t worry about us but she feels so bad we got overlooked for a 15 year old. She is extremely upset over this.
I’m not sure why I wrote this, I guess to get it off my chest. If you somehow have any advice please give it, I just don’t think there is a good fix to this, but thanks for reading.
