sorry for the delays! Neither of us are on facebook and texting is not our style, so with her being sick and then Christmas break, and then my travelling a bit and then getting sick (yeah for doctors and no flu!) it has been a quiet start to the New Year.
I DO have an update, and I am free and clear and OFF the hook! Basically, it was her idea, based on my hesitations...
and the fact that I am not bilingual, as the helper would need to be for the groom's family.
If not for my not speaking the language of the groom's family, she would still try to convince me to do it. Seeing the "teams" all listed out really hit home with me.
Oh, and money was never mentioned.
I did receive an invitation to the wedding shower, even though I really do not know this daughter, one of seven children, the youngest being my oldest's age.
Unfortunately I cannot attend, since I paid a deposit months ago for a get-away weekend that coincides with the shower. Oh well!
So, thanks for helping me to say NO.
And I have never been so thankful that I am not multi-lingual!!!!
feel free to add your story here. We can continue with tales of reception horror!!
