I am a little frustrated. My DD and her bestfriend (who is also my son's girlfriend) decided they wanted to have their gradutation party together. Now all I planned was dinner out with her, cause we have no family up here except my MIL and FIL. The few friends I have all either work this weekend or are gone on a camping trip. So my thought was to keep it small.
They, however, wanted it together and have been saying this for months. Finally I said okay but am starting to get annoyed. First I guess the friend mentioned it to the mom kinda late. At a BBQ for the end of the year track award ceramony the mom was a little bitchy with my DD about being able to afford it, and that she hopes I plan to help out...um obviously. I asked my son if that was the same vibe he got cause my DD can be a little over emotional at times and he said "yes". So I wrote the mom on facebook explaining that I planned to help and that the only people on my side coming were my family (already invited to friends party) and my IL's (also already invited before combining them).
My MIL already went and bought a bunch of stuff; plates, condiments, drinks and a few other things. I am contributing potato salad, coleslaw and making the cake, buying all of the buns and I'm sure a couple of other things that I haven't thought of yet. I find out today that the only thing they are doing is buying the hamburgers and hot dogs. They are tight on money, I know that and so am I. But if the party wasn't combined (more in name then anything) what the hell were they gonna do?
There's more but that is what is bugging me the most. If the girls didn't want it so badly I'd have already said screw it.
