Should I stay or should I go?

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Ok so I need opinions ya'll!!! And I am serious here cause I am really torn as to what to do about this little dilemma. If you have read any of my blog you have likely figured out that I am divorced and I have a crazy ex and an equally crackers international set of ex-in-laws. I do my very best not to spend any time with any of them. Maybe someday it will be easier but it's all just too new and awkward for me right now given all the circumstances. That and 20 years of their bullshit was more than enough for me.

So here's the deal. My ex-sister-in-law is getting remarried in 2 weeks and I am invited to the wedding. Both of my daughters are in the wedding party as jr. bridesmaid and flower girl so I really want to be there to see them walk down the aisle. But... DO I ACTUALLY HAVE TO STAY FOR THE RECEPTION????? Should I??? Cause I don't wanna... like really, really don't wanna. But let me give you a little background first. My sister in law and I used to be really close when we all first got married. She was the closest thing I had ever had to a sister up until that point in my life. We got married and started having babies at the same time and as couples the 4 of us hung out all the time. But fast forward 17 years and a lot has changed. I will always love her but we are not that close anymore and haven't been for a very long time. But still she wants me at her wedding. And here's the big catch for me...obviously my ex will be there and if it was just that simple I could handle it. But now that I know that the she and her fiance recently vacationed with my ex and his new girlfriend (with my kids grrrr)  and I saw the four of them checking in on FB at a concert together last weekend. It is clear to me that they are couple friends now. Which is fine, I guess. But it's irritating to me. Especially because she did not give me a "plus one" on my invitation. Mine was made out to "Amy & Family" which to me indicates I am not welcome to bring a date. Which I would only do if I had someone special or someone hysterically funny that would go with me and make fun of everyone. And sadly I have neither, at least that are readily available and not on the other side of the planet.

I just don't think I can stomach a whole night watching ex-douche bag and his stupid girlfriend fawning all over each other all night without hurling! But ex sister-in-law really wants me to go...... So what do I do??? Ugh... just ugh!!!
