I'll try to keep this short; a friend is having her first baby, another friend and I said that we'd love to throw her a shower. At the time, she said she wanted a small group of friends (about 15), and she wanted to have it at my house. Perfect. I had the menu planned, invitations done - and she texted me a week ago (didn't even call) to say that she was having it at a hall, and she was inviting 50 people. She told another friend that she changed her mind because she knew that myself and the other lady throwing the shower would get her something nice, but she didn't think anyone else would.
I just started getting RSVP calls. I didn't even know that she had sent invitations, who she sent them to, or what I'm even supposed to say.
On top of everything else, I am moving in two weeks (to another state). They decided that I should coordinate everything because I don't work. The shower is this Sunday - and I have no idea who is doing what now because the mom to be keeps changing things. She is just expecting me to get a final headcount (when I don't even know who is invited), buy all the food and decorations, and take care of things "because I always do and she knows she can count on me." (This was said to a mutual friend yesterday).
I don't even feel like going, let alone throwing this. I feel taken advantage of. She hasn't even spoke to me in weeks - she's been "busy." I've tried to call her and get everything sorted out, instead she is talking through the other lady who is helping me throw the shower. She told another friend that she expects her shower will be "fabulous" because of the bachelorette party I threw for another friend.
