I'm having a confirmation party for my son tomorrow, it's still chilly here so it will be inside I have quite a few elderly coming and the RSVP was April 17th.
My hubby's godfather said his wife couldn't go cause she was going to be sick and he was a maybe, I addressed the invitation only in their names (they have older kids in their 20's that don't even live at home and one is living with a bf and has a baby), okay so last night my hubby gets a message that godfather is coming and his wife can make , oh yeah and also his daughter with bf, baby and his son. Okay food is already bought I didn't invite those extra people and his godfather knew he was in the wrong as he said I hope your wife doesn't get upset. UPSET???????????????????? I'm very upset!!!!!! The invite didn't say and family it just had their names on this, they pulled this when we got married too, we couldn't afford to have kids at the wedding as we paid for it ourselves , that's why I was sure to put just their names on the invite I didn't want it to be the wedding all over again.
I saved for this party by getting a bank that you could only open by a can opener and would spare change and dollars in it for months and months, now all these people are very HEAVY eaters, I had them at a party before and it was embarrassing how they ate everything.
As for the baby, our dog has never been around a little baby before and I don't want to have to worry about her nipping the baby that wasn't even invited cause the mom wasn't, not only that it's my sons day, it should be all about him and we knew we couldn't fit a lot of people in the house it's small, if it was outside it would of been a different story but it can't be cause the ceremony doesn't get over till 4pm.
I just can't even believe how people could have the b@lls to invite themselves, I mean these older kids don't even live with them anymore.
I had my husband call today because I couldn't afford to go out and buy even more food, I can't afford it. So he called and the wife answered and she said oh well I was going to make a macaroni casserole, now invite never asked anyone to bring anything they knew they were in the wrong.
She said well I'll have to call them up and say they can't come, well I feel like I'm coming down with what your godfather has WHAT????????????? if your sick stay home!
He explained there were other people we couldn't invite cause there wasn't enough room, that there will be a few elderly that's why it's in the house, I mean I think he explained it good he said food was already bought. I feel bad for him that he had to be put in that situation, cause invite was clearly marked.
I'm sick of people just inviting themselves and trying to take advantage I so couldn't do that and just had to vent...This time I had to be strong and stick up for what was right because usually I'll just take it in stride, but no more...
You might think well she was bringing a macaroni casserole believe me these people aren't clean no one who knows them would want to eat it. I invited just them to be nice, but sometimes being the nice guy isn't worth it, I know I'm a big girl less then I was but never just threw my weight into a chair like this woman and she broke my outdoor dining set. At this point I hope they just stay home.
So, read your invites well because people make plans and they can't be changed 2 days before , you have to be a responsible guest.
Starting to like the new me!
Waiting for my garden to come to life!
