Because ALL of my family lives a minimum of three states away, I've given them all more than a year's notice for our wedding date. It's Halloween 18 - easy to remember, and so far ahead easier to plan for. But my family's already making excuses why they can't come. A year out. My dad's going through a divorce and lost his house, and is becoming a recluse and said he might not be able to make it. Okay, that's understandable. Both of my younger sisters live together, and going depends on my one sister's husband's work schedule and if he wants to go. Kay? My brother's wife decided to stop liking me (when I announced my engagement she basically told me she didn't think I was actually in love and poo-pooed the whole thing, and then they both got super mad when mum defended me) and now he's saying they can't make it because work schedules and baby sitters and such. Same for my cousins. A year away.
Just... how do I pretend I'm not hurt and tell them all it's okay and smile like it is?
