here goes nothing

Posted by labrat612, 19 February 2009 · 1,387 views

So it's just before lunch and for the first time ever, I'm entering in a blog. Honestly, it's difficult: there is no way to hear intonation or sarcasm. My hat is tipped to other famous bloggers as they are able to do so adeptly, I presume.

Anyway, I'm in the midst of trying to plan a traditional Indian wedding in the US, while maintaining a full-time job at a start-up company as a scientist. It's been said that trying to plan a wedding involves "building new relationships". It's really an exercise in tolerance-- how much crap can you tolerate??? The worst part is that with one's in-laws, you can't yell at them the way you might with your own parents. It's just not tolerated.
Here's a good example: we have a ceremony a day before the wedding and my fiance and I found the perfect venue. It just so happens that his parents are associated with this venue and have connections for us to rent the place. Sounds easy?? So we delegate the task of booking the place, getting the food, etc to his parents (specifically his mother--soon to be my mother-in-law) and after 2 months..... NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE!!! She tells me every week when asked, "this is my responsibility- don't worry about it!" .
How can I make her understand that if we don't book this place, it would be a last minute decision to book some place else that may not be as suitable. Not to mention, it might be more costly.

This weekend, my future-mother-in-law is dropping by to see what progress my parents and I have made on the reception centerpieces, and other decorations. Yes, this is implying that she hasn't done anything and is only just commenting on what we've put our hard work and time into. Well, it's more stating then implying. It's not that she is a bad person, but quite frankly, the "hands off " attitude is getting on my nerves. Not to mention the procrastination. Yikes! If you say that you will do something, do it. Otherwise, don't say you will.

That's my thought for today: just keep your word.
especially if its mum.
