Okay, I know this it is probably in poor taste to post this, but it's bugging the hell out of me - so to hell with manners.
I'm disappointed. My daughter turned one two weeks ago and we had a fantastic party with all of Derek's family, my parents, and our friends.
No one from my family showed.
Three people from my family sent cards (which I am SO thankful for and have put in her baby book). I wasn't fishing for presents and I realize that it's a day trip to come visit from Seattle but still... I feel like I'm no longer included in my side of the family. I got married and I moved to this side of the mountains... and somehow that qualified me as a deserter.
I'm annoyed. My feelings are hurt. And I felt like blogging might make it a little easier to sleep since this has been rumbling around in my brain for two weeks...
