- Wedding: March 2011
For real, she just said that to me.
why? Because I got a little snippy with her after explaining to her AGAIN all the various details about the wedding, flights, accomodations, etc., that she hasn’t shown any interest in until this past MONTH.
Well I really didn’t get “snippy” untili she said something about preferring to stay as far away as possible from my SIL (brother’s wife) who she hates with a passion. Having heard the same kind of crap from my SIL, I THEN got snippy. I told her that I am renting 2 cars and doing my best to make sure everyone has transportation to and from the airport, a place to stay for free, and so on. But that I can NOT afford to accomodate people who just don’t get along… what did she want me to do, rent two MORE cars so they can not have to breathe the same air?? Criminy!
All I ask is that these two women behave like adults long enough to get through ONE WEDDING. How hard can that be?
SO I ask her what brought that on and she says “Well you have planned so much with your SIL and you have your friends and family and everyone involved….” basically playing the whole “You don’t need me” and “you didn’t include me” bullcrap card. Um, NO. And what’s this about “family”?? What is SHE then??
Friends? Funny haha. My BFF who totally blew me off? My 2 other friends who haven’t discussed the wedding with me at all except to say they can’t come?
My SIL, regardless of her “motives” (my mom says she always has one), has been the ONLY PERSON outside of this household who has shown even one iota of interest in the wedding since we were engaged in May. THE ONLY PERSON who asks about how things are coming along and wanted to see my dress and cake topper and helped me pick jewelry, etc.
NOT my mother. No, my mom actively *CHANGED THE SUBJECT* every time I brought up the wedding, up until very very recently!
Now she’s spinning it as “well I just don’t want anything to ruin your day”… and of course all that I can imagine “ruining my day” is if those two can’t behave like grown ups!!
