MIL trouble..again

Monday, December 06, 2010

Oh. My. God. You will not believe what I am about to tell you.

On Friday I got a facebook message from my fiancé's step mother. 'Oh crap' said she. 'At 7 pm on 7 May 11 (my wedding day), we are taking Annissa (G's l'il sis) to the Justin Bieber concert. It's her Xmas pressie. Still, the celebration will probably still be going when we get back.'


So the father of the groom will not be at the reception. Because he'll be at the JUSTIN BEIBER CONCERT.


So I replied thusly:

'Gosh. Surely someone else could take her to the concert? After all, she won't enjoy the reception anyway being as there won't be any other kids there, but it would be a real blow if you and Graham Snr weren't there.'

This was on Friday. She hasn't responded. G has been calling his dad all weekend to try and find out what's going on and he's not answering his phone.

The mind just boggles. Can you believe it?


In other news though, I have tipped the scales this morning at 85.5, lowest weight since 2008! I have been eating really well, especially since we went organic back ooh I dunno mid October, and since the wedding planning started I've been really really good - every time I want to eat something bad I say 'size 12 wedding dress, size 12 wedding dress' a few times and the craving fades, and same when I don't want to get on my cross trainer - 'size 12 wedding dress, size 12 wedding dress'. Works like a charm. So I've been exercising at least three times a week. I haven't been tracking really though - the BIG boss has moved into the office next to mine so I have to pretend to work all the time and can't just mess about half the day as previous.

I have also given up caffeine! Plus G and I are now 4 weeks or so into the 6 week detox program designed for me by my pre-conception nutritionist friend. Ooooh man, we have to drink this green mud drink, it's so rank eeeew but we choke it down like good l'il chickens. Gray is such a trooper, he valiantly takes all the pills and potions and never stops smiling. What a mighty mighty good man. Did I tell you guys about the regime we're on, it's pretty full tilt. I will read over my old blogs and come back and blog about it if I haven't.

Still drinking too much on Saturday nights though :-( it's SO FUN! But I feel so bad the next day - I threw up all day yesterday, which probably explains the low weigh-in but what evs, I'll take it where I can get it :-) haven't had a drink during the week for an age though and I know I am making consistently better choices.

AAhaaah anyway who knows what will happen about the inlaws - G says if they don't come to the weddo, that will be the end of our relationship with them - we have forgiven them so much and this is just the last straw. And if I am honest - which I must be with you my dear sparkfriends - I am kinda wishing that will be the case. I try so hard not to hate them and to remember that they are only so horrible because they are unhappy and wounded people but they make it so hard! They are just so horrid! I would so love to have them out of our life. Especially the step mother, man, she is poisonous.

Oh did I mention that the tickets for the Bieber concert haven't even gone on sale yet? So it's not like she's got them already - she hasn't even bought the tickets yet.


Out with anger, in with love.

Peace, out, people xx

    Wow, I thought you guys had reconciled with his parents? I'm so sorry to read that they're still acting shady. I am floored that they'd rather take a tween to a Justin Beiber concert over seeing their son get married. That's a real slap in the face, and I'm sorry you and Gray have to deal with it. But it does make me happy that you're enjoying your Saturdays and still staying on the straight and narrow during the week. I've been hitting the bottle one night a week and I think this may be the way to go for me. I can't be a straight teetoler, but I'm doing the best I can do. Can't wait to see pics of you in that size 12 dress. You're going to look smashing!

    oh honey! it is amazing how weddings turn people into monsters! we had no issues with my in-laws until wedding time. when my sister-in-law caused a huge fuss (do NOT get me started on that sorry excuse for a human being!) the parents took her side and it was a HUGE MESS! Rodney wanted to scrap the whole wedding plans and just elope! (which i would have been okay with, had my parents not already paid for plane tickets and such)
    you two continue to do what makes you happy and don't let them ruin it for you!

    and you'll be rocking the hell outta that wedding dress! i just know it!!!

    WTF!!!!!!! JUSTIN FLIPPING BIEBER is more $#!@#% important??? WTF is wrong with those people, anyhow?

    Now more than ever, I'm NO "Bieber-believer"! Gawd almighty!

    I am so, SO deeply sorry that you have to deal with this crapola.....

    Love your quote "out with anger, in with love"......heard that on an episode of Absolutely Fabulous (one of my favorite Britcoms, BTW).....hopefully, reasonableness and sanity will prevail and the tickets will NOT be bought!

    That saying"size 12 dress" Is such a great motivator! emoticon emoticon
