She knew nobody would want two whole parties in a row, and she still did it. I guess she got exactly what was coming!
I predict weeks if not months of whining to come.
I don't think anyone is planning to go to things at her house anymore. I am not going to Thanksgiving. it's the same blasted, DH and DS17 both work retail and will need to go in at midnight. They need to sleep some before they go.
We tell her - we have to be home by 3:30, so we can either stop by or just not come. She'll insist we come and then complain when we leave. I am all done. and if she asks why - I am going to tell her.
At the wedding - she rented a condo - so she can have people back to her condo after the rehearsal dinner and after the wedding. The groom her son - was like look Mom - some of us want to go spend time with our friends and not always be at your condo sitting around.
She looked at my husband and said - well all the family is coming back to my condo after the reception. Dh said .... nope, not us. We have plans to g odo things the next day and plan to go to bed early.
She's jealous of me in a bit - since my house is where people like to be.... usually because if we are having dinner at 5:30, I ask people to come at 5:00, eat at 5:30. We eat, I clear, make coffee and set out dessert. If peope want to hang out fine - if they want to leave fine. Usually they stay, but since I honestly don't care - no one is itching to leave.
Anyway thanks for letting me whine away !
