I called her mother, but she’s actually my grandmother who raised me since I was a baby. I don’t have parents in my life, so she is a mother to me. Anyway, my future mother in law has graciously offered to host my bridal shower. She and I live in the same city, as well as many of my friends and FI’s family. My family is scattered all over, so I didn’t expect many of them to make it. My grandmother is currently in Florida. She’s a snowbird, so she travels annually from Florida to Alaska and then back again. She loves to travel and doesn’t stay in one place very long.
I asked my grandma if she would come to my bridal shower, but she said she wouldn’t be able to make it. She said she is in Florida, and it’s too far of a drive. She also said that her husband has been having heart trouble, so she wants both of them to not travel too much. I told her I understood and let it go. Well, the other day I was talking to her on the phone when she told me she and and her husband have booked a 7 day cruise! The cruise leaves out of Miami (a few hour drive from where they are now) and leaves just 2 weeks after when my bridal shower is. I must say I was a little upset by this. She claimed she couldn’t travel to my shower, but she is able to travel to Miami and go on a cruise? Does anyone else find this strange? What would you do in this situation?
