Eleven days left, and my family is still finding ways to stir the pot.
Way back eleven months ago, in the midst of planning, I asked 2 of my cousins if they could attend, so that either they or their children, could be participants. They both said most likely not, but would get back to me. A few months later, as we were finalizing it up, we asked again, still undecided they said. Then finally, a month or so after that, and when the rest of the family all had their travel plans finalized, they gave the final & flat-out no. For whatever reason, they would not be attending. Done deal, right?
Apparently not. My aunt (mother of these two) is fuming over why her children were 'snubbed' and not invited. I'm confused ... they're not coming, so why send them one? Would'nt that only 'obligate' (for my family, invite = gift, attending or not) them to send a gift, which I don't really feel the need to burden them with?
With eleven days left, my mom's blaming the post, and asking me to resend. I don't see the point. They gave their best wishes months ago when they declined, they never intended to make travel plans to fly to LA and clearly stated that they weren't going. I'm not sure if this is my aunt stirring the pot, or my cousins, but either way it just seems silly (or am I?)
Bottom line - resend one, or not? (And if so, just take out RSVP?)
