- Wedding: July 2011
Didnt actually think I would get family drama- but here we go. We chose Vegas specifically because MM’s father lives there. He is in his 80’s and not healthy enough to fly or drive.
MM has two children – 18,20 who have not seen Granpa for at least 5-10 years ( no one really remembers). Also MM’s sister has one child, 22 who hasnt seen grandpa in same time.
For months we have been telling him we will be there Wed- Sunday with ceremony on Saturday night, and either Thurs, Friday time for grandkids/grandpa. Guess what? Today I get email that he will be out of town Wed- Saturday see you at that morning brunch? WTF?
Not only is that barely any time to see the kids, but I have been shipping stuff to their house – decorations, my dress- etc that I will need Thursday/Friday. And now they are not around to get the stuff until Saturday?
I didnt realize the social calendar of 80 something folks was so full. Silly me.
Just needed to vent- as MM says “its my family – what can you expect”
