Just want to un-invite some family!
Posted 01 January 2010 - 06:47 PM
Then my mom proclaimed that NOONE on her side of the family is coming, but my uncle, her youngest brother, intends to go. Then, after she found out that my dad's sister plans to go, she now says she might go, since she is going.
Then she found out that we are paying for my FIL to go to the Bahamas, because he is on social security and can't afford to go on his own, and he raised my husband by himself since he was a baby, and he is going to watch our son while in the Bahamas. She said whatever we do for one side of the family we should do for the other. Then she said if we paid for her to go, she MIGHT go, even though she is a software engineer and a Mercedes is only ONE of her vehicles. Honestly, my mom gets on my nerves and at times, I can't stand her at all, and I barely talk to her due to her selfishness and negativity.
For instance, I had been overweight almost all my life, so after I had my son, I decided to lose the baby weight as well as the extra weight from before the pregnancy. So, I called myself being nice to send her a picture of me and my son, at this point I had lost 50lbs, and the first thing she said was that my face looked saggy and that I needed to tone it up. My face was nowhere saggy as a matter of fact, at 26 I still get carded for NyQuil because they think I'm under 18. When I went down in October, the only comment she made was that I waited until I grew up to lose the weight.
So now, my younger brother went down to Louisiana for Christmas, while my husband and I stayed home in Arizona for the Holidays. Apparently, my mom's side of the family intends to go to Orlando, FL on Memorial Day weekend instead of coming to the Bahamas for my vow renewal. He said that they went around the room at my Grandmother's house to see who intended to go to Orlando rather than the Bahamas, and out of the room it was my uncle, same uncle, and my younger brother, even my MOM was going to Orlando.
My younger brother told me a couple of days ago that my mom decided she was going after my grandmother, her mother, told her that it would be wrong for her not to go. I honestly don't want her to come anymore.
Now, I'm contemplating not even sending them an invite. Why send them an invite that I'm spend my time and money, to design and put together these pocketfold invites knowing they have no intention of going? I even spent my time to find 3 cruises that dock in Nassau, Bahamas the same day as the wedding for those who would prefer that and one even leaves out of Orlando, FL. They haven't even told me themselves that they don't plant to go.

But, I will continue to take the high road, and send them the invites.. I guess I can kill them with kindness.. It will be an awkward visit when we go down for spring break in March. Thanks Ladies!
