My sister flew in on Tuesday (with her husband and daughter) and she was so excited and kept stressing about how much she wanted to help me. (Me and my fiance flew in on Monday).
She kept saying she wanted to go places with me, help me paint things, help set up things, etc..
Well. She hasnt. At all. She hasn’t been doing anything, really.
And tomorrow we’re setting up the tent and the tables and the chairs and the decorations… She’s not coming to help. Her husband doesnt want to come and help either.
She’s staying back at our parents house, with her husband and her daughter.
She’s a Stay-At-Home Mom (not willingly, she hates it,) and she CONSTANTLY complains to me, in great length, about how bored she is all of the time, and how she cant stand being around my 4 year old niece 24/7… well, here’s an opportunity for her to get out!
…and also, HELP ME, like she said she was going to!
But nope. She and her husband and her daughter are just gonna stay home at our parents house. No explanation. I asked “are you going to come tomorrow?” And her response was “No.. i don’t think we will” and her husband added, “yeah… I’m not going.”
My mom and dad cant physically help (they’re in their 70’s and pretty physically handicapped)… so it’s just going to be me and my fiance, setting everything up.
I’m upset; the day-OF the wedding, i was really counting on my sister being there for me and helping me with last minute details (greeting vendors, putting ice in the ice buckets, etc)…. but clearly now I won’t be able to rely on her.
So, luckily, my fiance’s sister-in-law has asked me if i need any help. And I do, desperately. So I asked if she and her husband (my fiance’s brother) could help me. But I feel awful. They barely know me, and now they’ll think I’m some kind of last-minute-lazy asshole.
My sister just… let me down.
Big time. I cant even be in the same room with her. And all she does when she sees me, is complain about how much my parents are driving her crazy.
I would have never thought anything of it, had she not emphasized and showed so much enthusiasm about helping me.
And not only is she NOT-helping, but she feels the need to criticize EVERYTHING I have done so far. She just picks on me and puts down everything I’ve been working on (decorations and such) and then she and her husband call me a bridezilla…. awesome.
What a great week.
