Awww, festive Mochi is so cute and probably quite put-out. Mitzi has a winning smile.
I think she’s smiling because it’s Mochi’s birthday. Many happy returns of the day, Mochi!
That smile is the best & happy birthday to Mochi!
Here’s Cosmo’s “do i have to take a bath” face.
Cornbread turned three yesterday! He celebrated with doggy ice cream and cookies and got a new squeaky ball and big backyard ball to play with.
If it’s an area where you still have cell service, you can hotspot a cell phone (if your service provider provides hotspotting services,) and use that for wi-fi service (facetiming would have to be on a separate phone from the one providing the hotspot.) Maybe ask him if he would like to do something of the sort?
Thats terribly sad-its really their loss and shows how “thoughtful” they are. The unwillingness to do a simple task after you did your do diligence to help navigate and gave notice. Ugh. He might not have the bio family there but he’ll have the family and friends that matter most bc atbthe end of the day- the showed… Read more
If it’s any consolation, we also invited my SIL’s now husband (they got married soon after us) and he didn’t come because he had a camping trip planned already. He’s someone we consider family, so it was kind of a bummer. But it just became a running joke among those of us at the wedding, including having him in… Read more
Oh no. Shucks. Darn. You hate to see it.
I had a covid test like 2 weeks ago, the qtip wiggle and scrape wasn’t even that bad. Like I’ve had pap smears that were more painful to do.
My ex, who for all his crap aspects made some solid points, once said that everyone’s family is like a dusty old room and every day life is like dim light where it looks okay. But any major event, good or bad, is like shining a bright light. It reveals all the cracks and dirty and worn parts that had always been there… Read more
I agree with others, you just have to kind of follow his lead. And tell him/yourself they’ll be at the bigger party to celebrate later. I get it - my husband’s extended family behaved in a way that would have crushed me shortly after we got married, and he was just like *shrug.* I spent like a month asking everyone in… Read more
Sounds like they’re being buttheads, and I’m sorry they’d rather be buttheads than cooperate so they can share such a special day with you and your fiancé. But it also sounds like he’s doing okay with them not being there, and I saw below you said your family really loves him. He’s lucky to be marrying you and gaining… Read more
tbh as long as you two are happy thats all that matters
Sounds like he knows exactly who his family is, and if he’s not freaking out, you shouldn’t either. If he’s ok with this, then you can be ok, too. I know people say that you’re marrying the entire family sometimes, but not really. You don’t have to get drawn in to their crazy. Just let it go.
Clearly not my place to say (anything, as I’m not-so-good with family drama), but if no further (intelligent) response from relations is forthcoming, then I would suggest a grouping of friends (who obey your instructions) be invited to perhaps ‘round-out’ what already appears to be a most-pleasant wedding ceremony.

Because their attitude help perpetuate the same system. It did not appear and maintain itself without a lot of workers being accomplices to it. Note that I agree with you, I’m not mad at them for that because I understand the pressures and reason which lead to that choice, but I also get the frustration of people… Read more
