I didn't realize my vow renewal ceremony with my husband was about her
Next year will be mine and my husbands 10 year anniversary. We are currently stationed (air force) in Guam.
Well, I sent out a heads up to immediate family that we are planning a vow renewal ceremony next year and will be in Hawaii. I know that my husbands family won't have any issues with travel arrangements or places to stay as his family own condos in Hawaii and Hickam AFB has lodging. My dad, step mom, brother, and my dads half of the family won't have issues with travel plans. My mom and sister will have the hardest time getting there. As my mom is terrible with money (some of you might remember the snafu I dealt with when she came to visit)!
I already told my mom ill try to help pay for her ticket and she can stay in base lodging.
Well, grrrrr this is where I'm trying to not let my temper go.
She sent me a Facebook message and this is what it says: "Jen I was thinking maybe it would be less expensive and easier for everyone to do the 10th wedding vows in Alaska. More people would be able to attend without much expense and there would be more places options to stay.
I would loveto see Alaska, maybe for the last time and my old friend G*. I could stay with L (my sister) and the girls and there is the base housing or other family for those others coming. You could plan to have the renual of ows in the church where you were baptized for immediate family only with a reception following after for all others. It would give Richard an opportunity to network on the base there to insure that the next tour of duty would be in Anchorage. "
Hawaii is about 5-8 hours fly time from Guam. Alaska is much much more. My husbands family wouldn't have anywhere to stay up there except base lodging.
This is supposed to be our vow renewal. We've been through cancer and all sorts of hell. I'm just, frustrated with my mother.
