    Just found this thread, and have a few things to get off my chest!

    Dear Wedding Guests:
    Why do you think that it isn't important to reply by the date requested? We even prepaid the postage, all you have to do is drop the card in the mail, you don't even have to put it in an envelope and seal it. Why have 100 of you still not replied 5 days after the RSVP date? Is it that difficult to check a box and drive by a mailbox?

    And why do you think that if you are really coming, that it's a better idea to wait and make your flight arrangements closer to the wedding date, instead of now?

    Also, I hope you're as excited about the wedding as we are!


    Dear Self:
    Stop stressing over the non-RSVPers. They aren't coming if they haven't replied yet, so just mark them as No and move on with it. Budget without them and leave a slight cushion.

    Also, get on the treadmill tonigth and make that butt smaller! Hotel rooms with blackout curtains is not a good enough excuse for not working out while on business trips!


    Dear UT:
    I hope we beat you on Saturday, because I'm sick of losing the last few years. McCoy really is going to be demolished, I hope you're ready for a beating.


    Dear FI:
    I'm going to miss you next week when you move to Colorado, but I know it's for us and I'll be there after the wedding. Please don't eat pizza and burritos every night becuase since you currently don't fit in your swimsuit, you certainly won't in 5 weeks. I will take care of the dogs, don't worry!


    Dear Boss:
    Yes, I am very excited about leaving the company and moving to Denver. I'm sorry that you can't understand that I don't want to be stuck in this job for the rest of my life, although I graduated from law school I can now Fed Ex things very efficiently. Please understand I am more intelligent than you give me credit, and no, I don't like how you sing all the time. It's annoying.


    WHEW! Thanks ladies!

        Thank you Tammy. I know she will get through it, its just not fair that she has to. At least she is still young, only 30, she has lots of time to hopefully fall in love again someday. I really want that for her.

        It is just around the corner, its pretty scary.

        Thanks for this thread Tammy, it helped me to say and think about some things I was holding inside. I am soooo pissed at my friend who sent me $40 in a card, maybe that is rude, but I spent $300 on her shower presents and wedding and got her what she wanted and went to stuff for her, and she can't show up at anything for me, or get a thoughtful gift, she just threw $40 in a card like I was someone she worked with and not a really good friend. I am so glad I can tell people that. I can't tell anyone in my life except for FH who was sooo pissed as well. I don't want anyone to think I am being a bitch. lol

          I Totally understand about teh $40.00 gift thing. I was like you for many years, always going above and beyond for my friends/family and in turn I feel like no effort was put in when the table was turned. I know make a point to only be around people that appreicate things, I can understand if someone has money problems but most of the time it's just because someone just doesn't care as much as we do. Their loss IMO. Great, TRUE, friends are hard to come by. Again... their loss..

            Julie - I'm so sorry to hear about your BIL. I definitely got teary on your posts... {{{HUGS}}}

            On a lighter note... Jen, I just started cracking up! Its not as bad in Philly with the tourists, but this was one of my regular rants when I live in NY!

I think it's great to have so many tourists here, but when you're walking down the street, please don't just stop wherever you are to look at the skyscrapers and take pictures. It's a VERY crowded city, there are people walking right behind you.

            So, welcome to NYC, enjoy the lights and attractions, and please get out of our way. Thanks!

            Sincerly,
            Jen

              She faaaar from has money problems. Her very rich parents paid for her whole wedding and then their 3 week honeymoon in Europe and there was 200 people at her wedding and they all gave her money. She just got married this May as well, so its not like she forgets what I gave her. Ooooh, makes me mad. Oh well, good riddance. Do I have to send her a thank you card? I don't want to, but I feel like I need to.

                Julie, yes, send her a card. You are obviously the better person, so be bigger and be gracious regardless. Then be done with her!

                And by the way, your strength is so inspiring. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

                  Yeah, I would still send her a Thank you card. But I wouldn't put as much thought in it. Just something simple and generic IMO...

                    I know, I need to. I just have to figure out what to say that can pass as a thank you, without really being a thank you. lol
