      Andrea, did Eric really say that about us?
      For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

              Andrea, tell him that the girls ALWAYS win! He should have learned that from his Mom. BTW, have you personally heard from his mom on the subject of guests since he talked to her?
              Hang in there honey, everything gets too weird when weddings are being planned.

                well....he just talked to her last night and it was kind of emotional...so I'm going to give her the weekend to think about her exact list and to calm down (so she doesn't chew my head off....plus I'm going to have to pick up my dress from her so I can go get it altered). Then when I get back from San Fran. I'll ask her for her exact list.

                  Well guess what I didn't give her the weekend to think about it.

                  Ok...I wanted just to ask her about her hotel list that she was looking at so I could give Tammy an idea of what I'm looking at to book for hotels. Well the conversation with Carol(FMIL) went well in the beginning but then it turned to the worst. She mentioned that she was having a bad day today and a bad day last night and then she went on to say that she tried calling everyone she told of about the wedding and told them that she had to cut the list, that Erik and I only wanted a small wedding....Well she said everyone didn't say ok we won't come, we understand....nope she said that they are all planning to come either way.
                  Well she started to get angry with me and kept saying that she would pay for the extra people which I told her that's great but it wasn't about the money, it was about the amount of people she would have vs. the amount of people I would have. I told her how much it was going to be if we split it evenly down the middle (she pay for her 40 guest list, and my mom pay for her 40 guest list)(about 7,000) Well she then said she had to think about it and that she had another phone call coming in and hung up....
                  Well I end up calling Erik much later and he says I was an idiot for calling her and mentioning the wedding....That she called him and is very very upset. He said I should have waited to talk to her after this weekend.

                  I'm sorry I only wanted to know her hotel ideas......So now I'm screwed with her being angry with me.
                  I'm tired of this....I'm not going to talk to her till after this weekend. But I really really need her guest count so I can order flowers and invitations.....
                  FUDGE!!!!!

                  sorry needed to vent.

                    Oh Andrea, I am feeling for you, I had a mother in-law, that came between me and my first husband. She was always causing problems, wanted her own way, and went crying to her son (my husband) whenever she had something go wrong. He always took her side, he said it was easier, or ignored it. I felt like my felings were less important than his mom, in the end I was right. You must win this battle, it's your freakin wedding, and Erik must support you, it will set the tone of your furure relationship with her. You need to know Erik is going to be on your side (even if your wrong) a united front you must be, Erik must learn this lesson, for the future happiness of your marriage. Good luck, eloping sounds like a good idea, don't ya think? LOL He can no longer be a son first, He must be a husband first, son second.
                    Stay strong!
