Okay, I know I said I wouldn't be blogging much, but I need advice on inviting people to my baby shower. I submitted the list to the hostess (my loving and wonderful big sister) and am wondering about adding two more people.
1. The Barbara. (Dun dun dunnnnnnn...) No, she wouldn't have a good time, because she'd have to be around people that aren't encased safely in a television. No, she probably wouldn't come because she's 3 hours away and thinks that 5 miles is too far to drive for Popeye's. However, she is the grandmother, and part of me feels that it's her right to be involved with things involving her first grandchild. No matter my feelings toward her, I would never, ever, in a million years, keep the boy from her. I'm not saying I'd let her in the delivery room, but she's always invited to everything else involving him and any future children we have. So, I'm wondering if I should have my sister send her a token invitation, knowing she wouldn't come anyway, but taking the minute chance that she would scares me.
2. A "friend-in-law." You know, the person whose spouse you're closer to than the person. I think this chick is absolutely cool, hands down my favorite friend-in-law (not that I don't love my other ones - au contraire, I don't have any friends-in-law that I don't like - but this is the one I know the best). I would probably be friends with her outside of the context of my friendship with her husband, but she lives 2 and a half hours away and we've never really had a chance to have a friendship and hang out, one on one. I'd like to invite her, because I like her, but I'm afraid that since we're not quite personal friends, it'd be weird. Who knows - maybe it'd be a start to an actual friendship.
What say y'all?
Either way, it's gonna be a wee tiny baby shower. Too bad my friends are scattered to the four corners of the Earth. If only we could have the shower in California, it'd be totally hoppin'.
