DH and I along with my family, have been planning Delaineys 1st birthday for over 2 months. We have purchased and sent out all of the invitations, ordered the cakes, and started buying decorations. We are having one of the parties here in La Vista for mostly DH family and friends that live close. We were talking this evening about the party and what all we had purchased for this party alone. We have spent an obsene amount of money for this party, which is the main party, and couldnt wait for it to come. Well I told him that I hadnt received an RSVP from ANYONE. So he calls his mother to see if she had heard anything and she informs him that no one fom her side of the family will be attending. I asked him if he has spoken to his dad and he said no, but that he doesn't think anyone from his dads side will be coming either. I went out on the balcony to find him in tears and feeling horrible saying that he doesn't have any family that cares. I proceeded to call and speak to MIL and she told me that we should call her side of the family to see if they will be attending and thats when I politely stated that that is not our responsibility. The invite doesnt say that we will be calling to receive RSVPs. I am a little upset right now because of the money that we had spent to provide for 50+ people and now it looks like the guest list is 15+.
thanks for letting me vent!!!!
