    As some of you may know my mother has been a bit---odd lately. Here is a thread to help you understand the drama...go ahead, I will wait :)

    http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t13970
    FYI- She did end up getting married.

    So she was supposed to do our wedding cake and just decided to tell me via email this morning that she isn't doing it!! WTF! I emailed her over a week ago asking her to do some sort of cake tasting for us and never heard back. I called her last night and told her I knew she was busy and she had to let me know what was happening.
    So I get the email this morning and she said she knew I would understand! No apology at all! uuuuugh.
    So I paniced and started calling places only to be told there wasn't enough time to get one. I even went into Target and was told they needed 30 days.
    I called my younger sister to ask her if the place she works does them and of course she wanted to know why. She ADORES my mother and was pissed for me. To wrap this up, she called the bakery that did her wedding cake and they are fitting us in. She than called me back to tell me that she is paying for the cake! They just bought a house so I know that is huge gift from them. That is really the biggest stress, we are on a very tight budget and $200-$400 for a cake is a huge slap in the face.
    See so part of my family sucks and the other part rocks.

        Oh damn, Stephanie - if this have a good ending, I was going to make sure to find a place for you! I just realized I am going to be in Chicago the weekend of your wedding ... and I was going to stalk your wedding! I drove by Centennial Lakes the other day, it looks sooo nice, and will look even better once things start turning green!

            Stephanie.. WTF is up with your mom? That sounds like something a bad friend would do, not your mom! I'm so sorry you had to go through the stress of it all. Your sister sounds so great! Lean on each other as I'm sure you have been. :)

              Thanks for the thought. I had some place tell me I had to call back tomorrow and I was like no freaking way am I holding off another day on this!

              Sorry you can't stalk me! You could have had a peice of cake :) We were joking, with how the weather has been that it was going to snow on our wedding day.

              My FH was thrilled to find out we figure something out ( he is out of town) he said it is amazing how we all pull together for each other. My 2 sisters rock! She said she would be so upset if 3 weeks before her wedding she had to figure this out so she wanted to help.

                Wow. First of all, at some point I would make it known to your mom that it was not ok and no, you didn't understand. I'd wait till after the wedding though. No need for more drama. I'm glad it worked out in the end. Your sister rocks! :)

                As for your mom, wow- who knows what the deal is there. The only reason I would let her know that it wasn't ok so that hopefully it will give her a little eye opener that her behavior is hurting those she loves. She may not realize now, but hopefully soon it will dawn on her.
                Happily married since 2008

                      My mom is pretty self-invloved. My older sister actually snapped at her this weekend during my bridal shower telling her the day wasn't about her.
                      I agree that saying anything now is not going to work out too well. I would like to stand up and toast my sister at the wedding for bailing us out and thank my mother for once again causing me stress. That would go over well.
