Sure! I’ll drop everything and run to Chicago!

Note the extreme sarcasm.

Doug’s cousin is getting married. Yes, he was in our wedding, BUT, with me teaching (Please?) and Doug working in health care…it’s hard to really get time off. AND to boot, the wedding is in Chicago, during the MARATHON. Yeah. Not one place to stay under 275/night. NOT in my budget. Especially with 3 people needing accomodations-We wouldn’t leave Isaac home!

So, imagine my shock and awe when a BRIDAL SHOWER invite arrived in my mailbox yesterday.

Sure! I’ll drop everything and run to Chicago for a luncheon event! I’ll just put all of my plans for the summer aside and run out there. No matter that Isaac and I have one trillion things to do.

color me unamused.

Now…how to decline graciously without laughing hysterically at the suggestion that I could be there if I really wanted to…


Entry filed under: insanity, wow.

The Easy Lunchbox System-one word. Yum. Happy 4th!

    I’m betting that’s a courtesy shower invite. You’re family, so you get an invite.

    As for the wedding – is there a way to stay more outside the city and take their train (the el?) into where the wedding is?

      unfortunately, it’s marathon weekend (nope. not kidding. the boneheads scheduled their wedding during the marathon..) so, everything is taken. I mean EVERYTHING, including relatives houses!

    I think this was 110% a send me a gift. They know you can’t come and they sent it. Don’t agree that it was a courtesy thing at all. It is more courteous not to send something to someone if you know they can not attend and you are not that close with.
