- Wedding: July 2012
I have posted before about my parents and how they frustrate me to death, they both have a gambling problem and have gone bankrupt in the last 2 years, instead of working on getting back on track, thye continue to gamble.
my sister and I have talked, not talked, yelled and offered to find them help, to which all is ignored. they have known about the wedding for about a year and a half now…I have asked them time after time to just let me know if they can make it or not…to which the answer has always been, YES, we wouldn’t miss it!
at first they were going to fly in, then a few weeks ago, they said they were driving the 2200 kms to be there. I sat at my moms table yesterday, and not a mention of them not coming, in fact she was asking me about this n that about the town we are going to. so i leave her apt, get home and I went to the dollor store and all of a sudden my cell is ringing, my dad is now calling me to let me know that they can’t afford to come. we are only 3 weeks away, so what can I say, i wanted to yell and scream, but instead I just said, well what can ya do, if ya can’t, ya can’t. I had to get off the phone so that i didnt’ cry in the middle of the store.
I am VERY disappointed that they aren’t coming, but I am more upset about all the lies…they constantly lie to my sister and I about going to the casino’s, they claim they are going to the states to get groceries, but we know damn well where they are and they lie to us because they know it’s a problem but don’t try to stop.
so now I am more mad that they waited so long to tell me, since I have paid for their meals, coursages, favours, etc. don’t get me wrong, they are my parents and I do love them, but I am half relieved that they have finally told me what I suspected all along, but very mad, frustrated and whatever else you can think of that they couldn’t make me a priority jsut this once….
and I know at the end of the day, i am marrying the man I love, no matter who is there. I am jsut bummed that the only family attending now is my 3 boys, and my sister and her husband… sometimes life just sucks! but i will get over it, but I have decided that I will not have any contact with them for a while as I just can’t deal with them anymore
jsut needed to vent, thanks
