My Hump Day

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I'm finally off today. My last official day off was Sunday, the day of the shower and it was so overwhelming that I went to bed at 8pm and slept as much as I could until I HAD to get up! I have worked 1 - 9 for the past two days and back to work tomorrow.

The shower went well, very quaint and relaxing. My friends mother felt it necessary to tell her that she was upset because she felt like she wasn't included in on anything. I am trying really hard to not take these words to heart because I did everything I could do to include her and she was on a cruise the whole week before the shower. It's hard to plan a shower and my thoughts on it are that if anyone wanted to help, they could have said something before-hand. There really wasn't much to do except make food. I thought it would be nice for her to come and relax and not have to do anything. Oh well. I didn't mean any harm.

    sounds like you did a wonderful job on the shower. don't worry about the mother's comments. like everyone else said, weddings are a crazy time and everyone's emotions run high with everything revolved around it. There is plenty of stuff left to do i am sure and if the mother really wanted to be more involved in it she would have. it is probably just her own way of making herself feel better because she didnt do more to help you.

    i hope things get better for you as the week goes by.

    Sounds like your schedule is about as crazy as mine! Don't worry about the Mother.. if she was gone for the week she wasn't around to help then & you had to get things done. Some people like to be involved & others prefer to just come & relax.. how are you to know? Just be happy that you did a wonderful job.. and its over!! lol..

    take care & hope you have a good day at work!

    I too wouldn't pay much mind to the mothers comments (I know its hard especially when you try hard and think you are doing something good, by letting the mother come and relax and share the special day with her daughter without a hitch).

    Well that was just the shower.....still more to come so tell moms to jump in theres plenty of stuff still to do. Some people are just never happy no matter what. Yup, don't let her comments effect you.

    I'm happy for you that the shower was quaint and relaxed and all your work and love was appreciated......couldn't of asked for a better day.

    Have a great Thursday........
    Gooo Pearls!

    Yay for being off!! Dont worry about your friend's mother. She was probably jealous that you had done such an amazing job with the shower that she didnt know where she fit. Be proud of the job you did and that everyone had a great time! I cannot wait to see the pics!

    Oh My Michelle, sorry after such a long day on Sunday you had to work the next two days and those hours. I hope you were able to get some rest today.

    Glad the shower went well. I wouldnt worry about your friends mother. Weddings and everything planned around it seem to make everyone a little touchy. She will get over it and like you said the mom was away anyways. As long as the bride to be and the rest of the guests had a good time thats all that matters. Just be proud of yourself and the wonderful job you did!

    You'll have to post some pics of the shower.
