    I'll pick it up a bit!!!
    WTF My mother who was insistent we have beef and chicken as options only "because that's what everyone does!"  threw a fit when we changed to theme stations (as I had planned and figured for), but then was bragging to all her friends and our relatives that she could't wait to try all the new food and that she was so glad her daughter was creative and not afraid to do other things.  Why must she be difficult to me only to actually like and respect my decisions? Doesn't she know I have 35 days and am at my wits end on the stress train as it is?  Uggh!!  Can't wait for the big day just get here already so I can be stress free!

    I wrote a check for $500 3 weeks ago and they still haven't cashed it. I want to say Cash it now or I'm going to spend it since you are too slow. haha.

    I also have a crazy Mother - who now wants to change my entire Invites after we BOTH went in and decided to order the paper. Egh - you had your wedding now let me have mine! For real!

    Dear bridal shop
    I want my freaking dress. Seriously. I'm going on day 4 of migraines, 3 days of insomnia. The happiest time is spent secretly stressing about what I will look like so I keep it to myself (except for the boards). I want to cry daily about it. Why won't the store give me a straight answer. I HAVE to know if it's going to be here in time to make alterations. What the HELLLLLLL! I now have no idea what jewelry to buy, what undergarments will work, what shoe height will work. I have doubles of things and will have to purchase more things just to be safe because I cannot leave it until the last minute. I have no exrta money for this. Do they have any idea what this is like. I hate them with every fiber of my being right now. Grrr.

    Dear Auntie's brain surgeon-
    I hope you got some sleep last night and you are well rested and focused.  Do your best today. Kill that brain cancer with your super cool gamma ray thingymajig. Don't do any damage to the parts she needs to be herself. We trust you and believe you can work miracles. We really need one. Peace out.

    Dear favorite aunts,

    The excuse that you're afraid of bad weather and icy roads to drive the 200 miles to my wedding on Nov. 6th kinda sounds like BS to me. Yeah, this is MN and there's a chance that there could be weather, but wouldn't you want to make a weekend of it anyway? That's part of the reason we're having the ceremony and reception at a hotel -- to make it easy for OOT guests. But whatevs...

    Love,
    Disappointed niece

    Nothing Wedding related.... but here's my WTF Wednesday!

    Dear Body,
    Really? The flu...? SERIOUSLY? WHY WHY WHY Must you have the flu when I have a midterm today? You couldn't just give me a headache it had to be the flu? Heal quickly, please!!!!

    And

    Dear Professor
    If this midterm didn't count for 3/4 of my final grade I'd blow it off. Why the HE** would you make a midterm worth 3/4 of a class grade? As an educator teaching SpEd do you not realize you are setting your students up for failure? Isn't this what you are teaching us NOT to do? Ugh, I'd hate you more today but I'm too sick to care.. See you in 4 hrs!

    Amen!  My office is exactly the same.  I've been trying to look busy for a few months now because we reorganized the entire office and nobody bothered to give me and the 2 others in my position a real job description. 

    On a WR note, I'm getting pretty sick of all of this right about now.  I need to call hair/makeup people and florists this week, but I can't really be bothered to care that much.

    Tpender, you're from the Range, right? Do these aunts by chance live on the Range? I have heard that excuse so many times - my FI is from Ely and our joke is that it's impossible for a Ranger to go south of Cloquet. Or Virginia. November 6th isn't what I'd call a traditional icy road time of year. Thumbs down to your aunts, especially because they're your favorites. :(

    Bellaxanthe, sending major major MAJOR good vibes and prayers your aunt's way. Cancer is The Suck. (And I hope your dress comes in soon!)

    Dear Property Manager,

    After we have specifically told you and MANY other parties to NOT paint our deck that ugly shade of brown, you decide just to paint the posts brown and leave the deck natural. Do you not realize how stupid and ugly it looks!? Not to mention, paint takes a LOT more upkeep than a stain!

    What's even worse is that you didn't even tell us this was going to happen! Our neighbor discovered it and told us!

    We didn't pay $3K so you could disregard our wishes and make our beautiful deck look like a hot mess.

    Sincerely,

    Angry Homeowner

    Dear work supervisor,

    When you asked on Sunday, before I went on my weekend, I told you I was busy this Wednesday and couldn't pick up the extra day of work this week. So why did you have to call me and practically beg me to come into work this morning? You know I don't like coming in on my days off in general and I had specifically told you I was busy today. So now I feel guilty for saying no when I really shouldn't because coming into work would be doing you a favor and when have you or the rest of management ever done me any favors? 

    Sincerely, 

    Lowly employee you usually treat like dirt who cannot wait to put in her 2 weeks notice at the end of the year

    Dear FI's extended family,

    When I found out your daughter's wedding was the day after mine I was more than willing to move mine around to accommodate your needs. I really want all of you to be able to attend our wedding because it is important to us, and I really need you to keep my FI's dad out of our business... but that's another story all-together. Any who... I went through the trouble to find another date that my venue has available and have confirmed it with all of my family, why is it you cannot return any forms of communication? I wouldn't even have been in this mess if you had replied to our calls or email before I booked our date to begin with...

    Sincerely,
    Your impatient, future niece...

    Dear Boss
    Thanks for leaving me hanging!!! Could we perhaps have planned for someone to help me out knowing that the rest of the team is going to be in training and I'm going to be on my own.
    ~Your frusterated, and on her own, employee

    Dear Catering Manager,
    Could you please do this quote correct?? I would like to get the venue figured out before someone else tries to take our date...but you are making it very difficult!!!

    Dear Paper,
    Please just write yourself. With everything else going on this week I fear you are going to end up on the back burner and I really can't afford that!!

    WTF!  Hiring Manager,
    Why did you have to hire your little insider who was dismally less qualified? I have experience doing EXACTLY what it is you need, even when your current employees couldn't answer the simplest questions about the job. Now I have to keep pounding the pavement because you people always have a little pet waiting in the wings.

    Yup! I went to school in Virginia. And yes, aunts are on the Range as well. One lives in Mountain Iron (Tower end of Lake Vermilion during the summer, which is practically Ely <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="Smile" title="Smile" />) and one lives in Cook. I mean, I get the driving, I grew up there, but come on...

    Ohhhh i finally thought of something to bitch about :)

    Dear Dad,

    It blows my mind how you don't get why i am SO upset about your trip next week.  I cannot believe you are going to our FAMILY'S vacation spot with another woman (who you know i am not a fan of) less than one year after your wife passed away!  I understand you don't want to be alone the rest of your life but seriously....you started hanging out with this woman fairly soon after mom died and now your taking her to the same freaking hotel we always stay at in San Diego.  I am disgusted and upset.  I DO NOT LIKE HER or the situation.

    That is all....

    From,

    Your daughter

    Dear body,
    I am as sick of you as you are of me, don't worry - but honestly, passing out at work in the OR in front of my awake patient undergoing brain surgery yesterday?  Not okay.  You've already acquired a sore throat, sinus infection and persistant headache, which I can understand, but this was over the line.  And then you present me with a UTI today?  We need a truce.  I don't have enough vacation time left this year to adequately rest, so step it up, immune system!!!

    Also, dear bridesmaid who always has a snippy backhanded remark lately to everything I say - cut it out.  I will demote you if this continues.

    --Bellax, I promise it wasn't your aunt that I embarrassed myself in front of!  It was a male patient, and it was yesterday :)  I hope everything went well for her today!!

    Everything went awesome.  She said the surgery was like a spa day that ended with a headache. I guess it could be worse!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed and she's so positive with her attitude - I know she will be ok for as long as she can.

    Kaylas -
    So hard of a situation. My mom started dating very soon after my dad died.  It's hard to wrap your head around. Just give it some time. No one will replace your mom.  It's hard to let a parent "date" without having hard feelings. Hang in there.
