Etiquette shmettiquette….. all I can say is wow! It’s a good thing I wasn’t emotionally attached to this event but sadly my cousin from the south was wounded. Me…I can play the bitch game when I feel like it and I was never invested in the event like my cousin was. I am the oldest cousin so that has always put some distance out there and I have the ones I have always been close with. I only have one first born disappointment but he will learn the error of his judgement some day.
Wedding is on…wedding is off….I wasn’t even sure I was going before there was a pandemic. Now I am looking for verification of dates so I can send the evidence to my out of state cousin. Hopefully if will make him feel slightly better. He’s the cousin who is estranged from his brother because said brother married a very large nasty soul. All of this…because our family is lacking a matriarch. The older I get…the more I feel like I can walk away from it all.
I got a phone call today as did my local brother that we were overlooked and believed to have lived out of town. If we didn’t have plans we were invited to a wedding in two days. That’s what the voicemail said…I heard “we had some cancellations so if you aren’t doing anything please come to our wedding.” Lame! Like I said…I wasn’t sure I was going before Corona and I most certainly was not going now! I like the bride to be but I am not interested in any of this superiority crap.
I have found that I have been saying “bye Felicia!” a lot lately…and I don’t even know who Felicia is???? Point being…I don’t have time for this insignificant crap!
All of this angst made cutting the grass seem a little bit faster tonight. Probably because I was working off a mad…even though I wasn’t mad for me.
Last night I went to Big K’s for a fire. I found some pictures and finally made a decision about a scrapbook. I have destroyed most of the pictures of Cockroach with the exception of the Girls basketball scrapbook and the bowling scrapbook. I text SB and asked for her opinion since she made half of the scrapbook and she said only keep the pictures of “us”. So I did. I was hard because I know how many hours went into creating those layouts every week. I burned that and a journal from right before the Cockroach and right after…nobody needs to read those words. Now those words are gone…As well as many pictures…
One more day until the weekend. I have a few little projects planned and there is the neighbors pool so that is a plus. Hopefully the eclipse we be viewable from Ohio…for as much trouble as it has caused..it should. I hope your week has been less traumatic….Zia
