- Wedding: October 2011
Ok so I try really hard not to vent about people. I really do. I feel like it just depletes all my energy to focus on other peolple’s nastiness, but some things I just can’t shake off. Especially when it comes to my SIL ( husband’s brother’s wife). She has always been clearly snarky, snooty, whatever you call it to me, for unknown reasons. Yet, I try to treat her the same as I treat anyone else, always offereing to help, always maintaing a relationship between her and my son, but I have had enough!
This is the latest, and please tell me if I am ove reacting, I will try to keep it short, but keep all the details in.
My husbands grandparents are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary in a week. ( Wahhooo!! I seriously think this is awesome!), and about 2 months ago I declared I would like to make the cake and cupcakes for the event. I love baking, its a passion of mine, and I am always doing it for the ones I love. Anyways. since my SIL heard I was making them she went a little looney. She called me 3times (after no interaction at all for about 2 months) about this cake. What colors I have to do it in, what flavours I am doing, how much I am making. Even implying we should just buy it from costco instead. I maintained my poise, answered her questions. Told her I was making a chocolate cake, the Aunty who is planning it doesnt care about color scheme, and that I want to make it, its my gift to them.
Well about 3 weeks ago she decides she wants to do a cake pop display, despite the fact I am already doing cake and cupcakes. She decides she is doing chocolate flavor as well. Mind you, she hasn’t run any of this by me, or asked about how much of anything I am making since she decided to do this.
Now I’m just annoyed. Why on earth would she do a cake pop display, when it is essentially cake, and the SAME flavor to boot. Also, I talked to the Aunty who is planning all of this, and she told me my SIL told her we should just get it from costco! Again. Why does she want to take away the one thing I want to do for the party. The one thing I have been so excited about making.
UGH! It does sound trivial, but I have been dealing with this shit for 4 years already. I am so tired of it all….
