I really cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your opinions and advice! Seriously, you guys rock! I'm kind of letting the money/dollar dance thing go for now and hopefully it won't come up again. If I HAVE to do it, I'll be a good sport about it (or at least try) because I suppose
it isn't the end of the world, but at the same time I plan to stand my ground for the time being. I think if there is something else that Edgar really wants at the wedding that I don't want, I'll give in on whatever that may be so I don't have to ask for dolla bills ya'll. It's unreal how gangsta I am.
Speaking of gangsta, I am leaving Friday for NYC. Corona, Queens ain't ready for me. Actually I don't know if Edgar's aunt (who we are staying with) lives in Corona, but I think she is in Queens. Maybe she is in Jamaica, Queens like 50 cent (someone stop me from pronouncing that "fifty cent." Like I said, totally gangsta,
or should I say gangster?)Southside Jamiaca Queens __ ya heard me.
Tell me you are with me on this one, people.
Anyway, I will be in NYC until Monday afternoon. We have the baptism for three of Edgar's relatives to attend. I would like to meet up with Sassypants
, but I don't know when I will have free time...???
In other news, my SIL to be totally treated me like crap again and I totally just sat there...again. I swear I will speak up next time. It's just hard because I don't like conflict and I don't enjoy being bitchy. She, however, was in true bitchy form on Saturday night. We were all over at Edgar's mom's house for dinner. There were a bunch of us just hanging out, talking, etc. She wasn't being bitchy to me exclusively, but at this point she had already insulted our dog for not being pure bred like her dog (I know, right??? Who does that?) and the conversation had somehow turned to body size. Edgar's sister, has been trying to lose some weight. Our friend Danny said, "K*, you are looking really good." She said that she would like to lose 20 more pounds. Danny (who is Brazilian) jokingly made a comment about the white standard of beauty, etc. It wasn't insulting to me...it was very clear he was just joking. Then Danny said something about how I look really good and I said thank you. Apparently it's not okay for anyone to compliment me because SIL says, "Lindsey's too thin for my taste," in a really rude tone of voice. And did I say, you are too ugly for my taste? Or too bitchy? No, I sat there and said that I work out and I go by my body fat percentage and level of health instead of just shutting her up with a fiesty remark. Then she repeated that I'm too thin for her taste just in case everyone didn't hear the first time (Edgar and my MIL to be were not at the table at this point to stand up for me either). Then SIL says, "Well I guess the only people who have to be happy with how you look are you and Edgar." Okay, that pissed me off even more and I can't even exactly explain why. First, my goal of being in shape has nothing to do with Edgar. Edgar loved me when I was 35 pounds heavier. He will love me if I am 100 pounds heavier or lighter. Well not lighter, because I'd be dead, but you get my point. I know SIL's comment was total jealousy or insecurity or something
, but I let her get under my skin again
Thanks for listening to the nonsense that was today's post. I swear next time I talk about SIL I'll have a better story to tell. One where I come out on top.
Edited (already) to add: Dudes, I'm not even all that skinny! I would say thin or healthy maybe, but I have hips and some thighs, so let's face it, "skinny" is not a word to describe me. And SIL isn't even a large person!!! And if she were, who the f*** cares!?
