- Wedding: June 2010
A lot of you guys know that I am both a MOG and an MOB right now. My son gets married in 10 days and my daughter has a Jan. 1st wedding planned. I’ve been hiring venues, scouting sites, throwing showers, etc. I threw a shower last weekend and invited the two best friends I’ve had over the past 3 years. One came and one did not. The one that didn’t come, ignored the paper invitation, a text and then a phone call. I know she was well aware of the shower date because my other friend reminded her. She could have called to just say she wasn’t coming if she didn’t want to come, and it was very important to me that my friends and family show up to support my FDIL.
Then, after all of this, I was invited to a “surprise” birthday party for her on the same weekend of my daughter’s birthday and my son’s bach party. This is all done through her husband and the friend who actually came to the shower.The mutual friend is trying to soften me up toward her, but I have been this route before with this woman, who is all about herself. I have declined to go- and may lose her erstwhile friendship over it… Just wanted to let you guys know that this kind of thing goes on perpetually- some of you are losing bridesmaids and having fights with family members… a wedding is very important and people’s actions and reactions are very important in relationship to their perception of your involvement in their lives.
