Abigail has had 3 performances in the past month at church and school. My dad and stepmom have been invited to all 3. The first one, they cancelled on me the night before because my sister decided she was going to bring her 3 kids over the next day to visit (my sister lives 10 minutes away so its not like she was coming in from OOT. and instead of telling her they already committed to going to Abigail's performance, they cancelled on me. I was irritated, but it was the same performance my ILs forgot about and was over at my BIL/SIL instead, so I gave my dad a little grace because at least he didn't "forget".
The next one he couldn't go because "he was going to be sick the next day". Believable since he has so many health issues and he hadn't been feeling well. The third one, he had a dr's appt at 11:30am and the program was at noon.
Well, today, my nephew has his first performance and he goes to it and posts about it all over facebook. I'm so annoyed, and I want to say something to him, but I know it will turn into a fight, which I don't want, especially right before Christmas. But I'm so used to this kind of thing from my Inlaws, and my dad's always been so critical of them for that. Now he goes and does the same thing! I'm not upset he went to my nephew's performance. I'm glad he did. But I just wish he had gone to at least ONE of Abigail's.
