So I'm really just posting this because I need to vent, I hold this is 24/7 and I'm at the point where if I don't get it off my chest I may tell my fiance how much I dislike his mother! From DAY ONE of our relationship, this woman has NEVER liked me...she talked to her son about once a month before I came along, and now she talks to him about once a month, but it's MY fault. This same woman who said she is wearing CREAM to our wedding, my dress is Ivory, before that she said she was wearing red which is the color of my BMs. Now I didn't tell her what she had to wear, but come on, cream? Really lady? Well anyways, my shower was yesterday (August 21st), our invites were sent out about a month ago if not more, and we requested people call only if they couldn't come. She has her daughter (who also doesn't like me because i apparently "stole" her brother from her) tell me that she couldn't make it. My FMIL has my number, she could have said something to me. The reason she couldn't come, because her boyfriend's daughter got married the day before. She posts on my facebook status today saying "sorry I couldn't make it".
Everyone else in his family, aside from his mom and sister, like me, they all came yesterday and had so much fun, and both families mixed really well. I felt so embarassed that she wasn't here. Thank god for his step mom...she is my real mother in law. She has been there for us since day one, when he was deployed his step mom and dad were ALWAYS there when I needed them. They sometimes drive me crazy, but I'd rather them drive me crazy every day than not have them at all!
I really wish I could tell his mom where to shove it, and to not bother coming to the wedding either...but I know I can't. My Fiance said that he's not going to say anything to his mom about the shower because "I don't want to talk to her. She brings nothing but drama into our lives", I told him how much it hurt me, but that was it. No matter what he says it's his mother, and not my place to call her every name I want to...which is why I'm posting here...I feel A LOT better!
Oh and did I mention, my parent's still have NEVER met his mom!
