I actually was invited to something!
I have not posted in a long time because things have been going well. Disengagement rocks! My DH and I have not had an argument in a very long time over his kids behavior. I have not seen OSD in 3.5 years. I do see YSD from time to time and we have a polite, but not close, relationship.
Today is April 9, and we just received an invitation to the grandson’s first communion. It is on April 28. Two and half weeks away, and we just found out about it?
But my name was on the envelope too! Can you believe it??
It is 12 hours away. And flying into The Holy Land is already expensive, especially 2.5 weeks away.
I think the invitation is because she doesn’t expect us to go, but does want DH to send a check.
DH will be there two weeks later for a visit anyway, and we already have plans on April 28. I have a feeling that won't matter. When DH didn’t go to OSD's confirmation years ago (she converted to marry her DH), OSD was mad at DH for 3 months, even though she told him at first NOT to go.
So who knows how this will pan out. This may be the perfect opportunity for OSD to morph into victim again.
And including me on the invite is nothing more than showing her dad how nice she is. "See, it's all SM's fault. I even invited her to the first communion (even though I knew you guys wouldn't come)."
