Future MIL Issues! Bridal Showers...
Posted 16 August 2007 - 12:31 PM
So I let her know that it is just something small, that my Mom was not going to be there either (which my Mom was fine with), please don't take it personally. Well, of course she does and startsâ€™ yelling at me about how tacky, rude it is to have a bridal shower and not invite both Momsâ€™. Is that so?? I have been reading the Emily Post books, and asking questions and that doesn't always seem to be the case. Maybe a little old fashioned?
She continues to yell about how tacky and rude my friends are, and that this is about two families coming together, while I'm trying to apologize and explain I had nothing to do with the planning of this.
Well, to make matters worse she just started Chemo treatments for Lymphoma. This conversation took place the same week as her treatment. So I know she has a lot on her mind right now and isn't feeling her best.
It get's a little messy, because then she call's my Fianc© and starts telling him that I was rude and raised my voice to her (and I didnâ€™t).
This was a week ago, and she has not tried to talk to me since then. She has talked to Seth and mentioned that she "felt bad" for yelling at me.
Well, that all took place on a Thursday. On Monday I pick up my invites from the Calligrapher and she insist Seth bring their's over that day so she can look at them. The first thing she wants to know is why her and his fathers names aren't on there ( my parents are paying for everything) so she has to go and pull out all of her friends children's wedding invites and compare until she finds one that also doesn't have the groom's names on there (Whew!).
I'll leave it at that for now, sorry so long!! But the saga continues

I see one redeeming factor, however, and that is that she mentioned she felt bad. Even though she hasn't said it to you, it proves she isn't probably isn't completely soul-less like some evil FMILs are (or else she's really warped and is lying to her son). It still seems she has some petty qualities and I hope her son can help to work out those kinks )

So sorry to hear about the drama, just try and keep it low key on your end and hopefully others will at least notice that it is NOT you, she might also be concentrating a lot on your wedding because she is scared about other things that are going on in her life too. Good luck!
