Cold Reception

                         

......that is what I received last night when I delivered Cindilouwho's slip to her mother's home....the whole family was there.  They were meeting to go over details for the wedding weekend.

                         

I was not greeted by the normal friend I am used to....the one with the smile and sparklely eyes.  It was "has anyone told you the schedule for next weekend?"....I said NO.  So I was matter-of-factly informed of a prompt 5:30 be ready for Friday's rehearsal and 11:am sharp Saturday begins hair!

                                  

I did send an email explaination to her....no reply.  The next day she emailed me that she needed her slip back so she could wear it due to her other one just not fitting properly.  I emailed back that I would get it to her Mom's since she "didn't have time to come by" my house for it.  Also mentioned taking her pics in her gown and the pics of her and boyfriend the day after the wedding.  No answer to that one.  Guess I was just brushed off.

Whatever!    Man, when she holds a grudge.........

Anywho.

If she wants to stress over this instead of understanding my need for ME time, so be it.  She's hurting herself.  Yes, it is upsetting to me, but...........I'll survive.  I will be Miss Merry Sunshine next Friday and Saturday all while I am helping set things up (no one does anything) and I will proudly and happily stand up with her to marry this old flame.  Tom and I will be the perfectly happy couple and put all of it in their faces.  Miss T will be the best little Jr Bridesmaid she's ever seen.

                                  

Had it been me in her position, I would have said "I understand and I'm sorry you won't be joining us, we will miss you" and NOT let it ruin my day or my mood or God forbid my 2 weeks before getting married.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  It's not like the tent fell down during the ceremony for crying out loud.

Her loss.

  So here I sit on what is my FRIDAY.........I am loving having my Friday's off again.  Hopefully I can finish cleaning out the spare bedroom and get it a wee bit organized.

This Saturday I am hair/makeup Mom for a friends little girl's pageant.  YES, I'm nervous over the hair only....the makeup is a snap.  My hope is that there is plenty of time in between talent and gown to get the "do" that the Mom wants.  Mom's aren't allowed backstage in this pageant so I guess I was next best thing!  I feel honored! 

Yesterday I made a reservation in Charlotte for the end of this month to go to Carowinds, a theme park.  The park will be decorated for halloween.  I have asked a friend of Miss T's to go along with us.....the parents are talking it over.  It would be nice if she could go.

Sorry about the whole cindilouwho ordeal. I can't believe she would treat you like this. It's always been so obvious how much you love her! ::sigh::

I can't believe your freind is holding such a grudge.  I know getting married is stressful, but the last thing you want to do is push your friends away right before the big day.

Kudos to you for not getting stressed about the friend situation.  If anything goes wrong with the wedding, I hope she doesn't blame you too!  Some brides are just so selfish...you have a great attitude about the whole thing!

She will come to her senses when all the stress of her world slows down. Just hang in there and she'll come around. Hugs Lanny

It seems many women get so emotional right before the wedding and if everything doesn't go exactly the way they want it then everything is all wrong.  Always do what you think is best for whatever the situation is.  Take care and TGIF to you!

I agree with you that the girl is making it harder on herself.   Don't stoop to her level and hold your head high.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  Have a really good Friday.  : )

I went to Charlotte with L.A for a modeling show, but we didn't have time to sightsee. It looked like a beautiful place. Hope you have a great time.
Take care, Chrissie
