- Wedding: October 2012
So things are in full swing planning my wedding after so many years of planning everyone elses events. I’m super excited going full boar with all the details because I’m just so use to doing so… and my mother in law to be asks on day.. “Wait… your throwing your own bridal shower?”
I never even thought about it, but it really made me think.
The entire process so far, my step mother has been MIA, even when we got engaged she was very disinterested. Yeah, I know she isn’t my real mother, but my mom passed away form cancer when I was 12 and she’s been in the picture since I was 15 (I’m now 32) so you’d think she would care a little bit right? So I had a plan!! A perfect plan I thought!! I emailed my FI’s mom, and my step mom and asked if there was anything they would like to help with or do for the wild west themed bridal shower, wether it be planning, or decorating, or games, or even sending emails to invite people or bringing a snack. While my FI’s mom responded within a day… (and in all cowboy terminology to boot) I didnt heard from my step mom.
So I texted her a few days later….
I waited a couple of days and left her a voice mail…
This is someone who doesn’t work outside of the house but has an online store and an ebay since she broke her foot last year.. its not like she isn’t seeing her emails…. Or doesn’t see her phone… maybe I should have sent a carrier pigeon?
Finally I texted her a week later and just asked if she was interested, and she finally responded hi, I have good days and bad days with the foot so I don’t want to comit to helping with anything if my foot hurts”
Am I overreacting for feeling hurt? That a hurt foot is reason enough to not want to bring some chips and dip in 6 months or to email some people to see if they want to come? Anyone else in this kind of situation?
Am I just being selfish maybe?
