bridal shower

I'm sooo mad I want to scream, my mother in law decided to throw me a bridal shower in sept. when her family is down and booked a small hall and said we can invite everyone (50 in total) so that way we are only having one shower, fine, well last week she handed me 40 invites and told me I had to write it out for my friends and family and she'll do the 10 for her family.  I"m soo mad, I told her I have way to much to do and it's not my job to do my own bridal shower stuff and she said that she's not doing it, and the reason why........is because she doesn't have the nicest handwriting, she even tried to get me to do her familes side now and I told her no way.  Now tonight she told me I have to have them done by the end of the week!  Which is crazy, I have alot of stuff to do for the wedding, a two year old at home, and my brides maids which are awesome said they would help me with the invties but we can meet till next week since I only got my shower invites a couple of days ago.  grrrr!


Oh and she also told me tonight that she forgot to invites 14 people, after I have sent my invites outs and she had 8 months to put a list together.


Thanks for letting me vent and getting this off my chest, it really hit a nerve with me.

Vent away, pusycat!!!  That's totally frustrating, especially since it is your MIL who is throwing it for you!  :(


Good luck!

No she only knows how to use her computer to play games and doesn't have a printer.


And to top it off we went for our sample meal on sunday and she was looking after our daugther so when we picked her up we told my mil all about our dinner, then last night I get this email from her sister which said


"why when mil ask you what was ur wedding dinner u told her it was a surprise but you have it on face book . jenn that is not right to do on your part . your side fo the family know all about ur wedding did you forgetn who is paying for ur dinner it is mil and fil not ur parents they are the ones that should be paying for ur wedding. you need to have some respect for mil she is fh mother and will be your mther inlaw also . your family isnt better than fil and mil. i dare them to look down on fil and mil. you pisss me off


Needless to say I was in tear, this lady doesn't even know me or live anywhere near us, she lives 4 provinces away!  Thank goodness FH was right there and read the email, got on the phone to his mother and gave it to her and told her to tell his aunt to watch her mouth (not quite in those words) and today I got some what of an 'sorry' from his aunt and she said she is going to speak to mil about why she lied to her about not being told but I know thats just the start of it, like why is mil saying all these things, I have been so giving in showing her every little detail I have planned for the wedding, and my parents don't know anything, they didn't even know what we where eatting until yesterday when I told them, they don't even know what my dress looks like and mil does, what more am I suppost to do!

WOW - I don't even know what to say.  I'm SO sorry.  People never cease to amaze me!!!!


Hang in there!  It sounds like your FH has your back at least.  That's all that matters - that you and your FH!  ;)
