I think...

I am just at the point in my pregnancy where everything is bothering me way more than normal...yesterday was humiliating and hard to get through with a smile on my face but I managed to get over myself and have fun anyhow. I felt the worst for my sister who planned my baby shower. She put SO much work into it and to have no one show up, you could tell it really bothered her which made it harder for me...not even my best friend came. I told everyone all along that I didn't want a baby shower because I knew it would end up this way, and they all told me I was wrong but I know my friends...I think it's gonna take me a while to get over this one, at least until I get all these pregnancy hormones gone. Lol especially when I think about all the baby showers I've thrown for all of my friends over the years and not one if them showed up...it's just hurtful. And then I feel bad for feeling bad...what a weekend. I'm just ready for my baby to get here already :-)

I started to feel better about everything yesterday afternoon. I have just been crazy emotional lately, all these pregnancy hormones!

    Poo on them (unless they had a valid reason for not attending). I am sorry they did not show. I would be hurt as well. My hubby's family barely showed for mine but when the biological niece (Hubby is adopted) had her son, many showed up. It hurts, I know, but the way I see things if they do not want to be a part of my son's life or mine, I am exhausting myself trying to be a part of their's. The one's who truly care will be there to support you, like your sister. :)

    One if my good friends who helped plan it had a good reason...she ended up being on a cruise which I wouldn't have even showed up if I had a chance to be on a cruise...I got a few "oh I forgot we had cleanup day at church" which I don't find a valid reason (I was a youth pastor for a long time and know that picking up garbage can wait or an hour so you can support your friend) but mostly people just didn't want to take time to come. But I am thankful for the ones that did come. I just feel bad because my sister and Mom put so much effort and expense into it and then no one came that told them that they would. But I'm feeling better about it now. Now I know who doesn't deserve any more effort on my part.
