On top of this all we had dinner with SSG's parents, aunt and uncle who were in town, and SSG's sister and boyfriend last night. Without telling a long story and having this blog be completely negative, I'll give the short version. SSG's sister is still showing no interest in her first niece or nephew and made it completely clear last night that she still doesn't. Actually she said pretty much she's just too busy for this child between working and grad school. It's hurtful but as I said to SSG last night on the way home, "It's understandable that you feel hurt and disappointed. However if she chooses not to have any relationship with this child then it is her loss. She's pathetic and miserable." We can't make her want to experience the joy of being an aunt. My only hope at this point is that this resentful attitude she clearly has toward SSG and her pregnancy doesn't get directed at my child.
We're just moving on today and we're going to get pedicures so when we're in Puerto Rico we have pretty toes! This trip to Puerto Rico is great timing actually. We leave tomorrow a.m. and we're looking forward to sun, warmth, and just relaxing. We worked really hard to be able to go on this trip, really budgeted and buckled down so I feel like it's a well deserved getaway.
