- Wedding: October 2014
I just need to vent.
Bit of background, my parents got divorced when i was about 6 yr old and cannot even have a civil conversation on the phone for 5 minutes and have not been in the same room as each other since the divorce went through. So you could say im a bit anxious about them being in the same room next week for my wedding, along with my stepmum and step brother.
The night before the wedding, after the rehearsal we are having a birthday dinner for my step brother (who turns 21 the following week), while all the family is together. I had organised to do breakfast with my mum’s family the next morning as they wouldnt be able to attend this because of the situation between my mum and dad. This was organised, all sorted and everyone was happy, or so i thought.
Yesterday my mum cracked it at me because she couldnt come to my step brothers bday dinner (mind you she has never met him or anything or even had anything but bad things to say about him, his mum or my dad). i told her it was not appropriate and i didnt need that sort of tension the night before the wedding but she has cracked it saying i am picking my dad over her; which im not im just trying to fit everything in where it works with the least amount of family conflict as possible! Ive explained but now shes been texting me super hurtful and mean messages since then.
I was also relying on her to bring her garment steamer to the wedding for my dress, which she agreed to and i asked if she had any issues if she could let me know by last week so i could sort out an alternative, so this morning she tells me shes doesnt want to take it anymore cause she wants less luggage, if one of my friends could take it.
So I organised a friend to pick it up then my mum decided she was going to the doctors and would be home in 2 hours so i told my friend and then when i contacted her to confirm if she was home she said they could pick it up another day cause she doesnt want to empty the water out yet. Then she decides they could pick it up and i let my friends know and then my mum decides to go out and not tell me, so my friends rock up and cant pick it up anyway.
Now my friends have had to rush around for me on my mums request, for nothing!! i feel like shes just being spiteful cause i wont let her go to my step brother bday dinner!
