......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.........
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.
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.
