Mother Nature SUCKS and other wedding related rants

Okay, the wedding is in 5 days! 5 days PEOPLE! Do you have any idea how much stuff I still need to do?!?!?!?
1. Rob called me at work this morning to let me know that Hurricane Wilma is gunning for Playa Del Carmen - where we are supposed to be spending a relaxing week after the wedding. Just my luck! No, my luck predicts that the hurricane will NOT hit the resort but will cause windy, rainy weather. Thus, making our travel insurance invalid and leaving us stuck at a resort with crappy weather.
2. I went to get gas this morning and found out that I have a negative balance in my checking account! Turns out I never accounted for my gym dues coming out last week and bounced a check! Just great! 5 days till the wedding, 4 days until I get paid and I need money NOW!!! I am going to have to charge the remaining items that I need.... Oh, and I don't have any credit cards! In an emergency, which I believe this qualifies as, I use my grandma's account. I feel so bad doing it, but I always pay her back immediately!!!
3. And this is a doozie -- why must men have bachelor parties?!?!??! Really, does any good ever come of it?!?! Does any bride to be NOT end up angry over something that happened?
This past Friday was Rob's bachelor party. They were having a poker thing at a local bar/restaurant and then going out, most likely to strip clubs. No biggie, right? My only rule was no lap dances at said strip clubs b/c I think that is grody. So, Rob gets home around 2:30, stumbles around downstairs for a half hour and I can hear him on the phone, but think nothing of it. The next morning his cell phone is beeping and I pick it up, because it is driving my crazy and I am nosey and there is a text message from his friend, Becky.
Let me back up, I have never been 100% comfortable with this friendship but mainly because Rob had a girl he dated before me break up with him because of it. Unrelated to saturday morning, I have noticed that Becky has been calling Rob on his cell phone more frequently than normal. He had me invite her to our couple's shower and Ryan's birthday which I did and at which she was incredible distant towards me.
ANYWAY..... The message said something like "I'm glad I got to see you tonight, hope you had fun, HONEY". I FREAKED - well, wouldn't you?!?!? I put Ryan down for a nap and woke Rob up to let him know what I thought about this! Now, I was more angry at her than him, because I KNOW Rob would never cheat! NEVER! But I really felt like she is crossing the line in the friendship. She calls Rob when she needs someone, etc. and I don't like it. Well, I guess the long story short, Rob's brother sent her a freaking invitation to the bachelor party. AND Rob's sister and all the guys wives were also invited (except Cheryl who was at our house putting together ceremony programs and centerpieces with me!). WHAT THE FUCK!!?!?!?!
How incredibly disrespectful is that to me, I ask?!?! Everyone but the Damn Bride was invited! Oh, and Rob NEVER once called home to see how Ryan or I were doing AND Ryan had just had shots that day!!!!!! Needless to say we ahve been arguing about this on and off since Saturday morning and last night we really had it out. Everything is fine now, but I think this supports my argument for why I HATE Rob's friends! Oh, and Becky is babysitting Ryan the night of the rehersal dinner! Nice, huh? It just screams of "Hand that Rocks the Cradle"
4. The weather forecast for Saturday? Rain, wind, and then more rain - just ducky!
I seriously need less DRAMA!!!

I agree...no good can come from a Bachelor Party! I would have been LIVID about the Becky thing, too! You have a totally justified rant! ;-)

Keeping my fingers crossed that you have GREAT weather in Mexico (and on your wedding day)! Brides-to-be have enough going on without having to add to the drama!

I agree, a guy bachelor party is always trouble. I didn't let Chris have one b/c I was pregnant with Kaleb and just new it would be trouble and didn't want to deal with it. Plus, how much fun could I have had at a bachelorette party of my own? That is total crap that all the other guys wives were invited and NOT YOU! That is messed up. I'd be in an uproar about the whole thing too. Then he doesn't even call you once, the shame! Tell him his acting like Chris, and that's something he DOESN'T WANT TO DO!
I hope everything is ok and that the wedding goes wonderfully. Maybe someone eles should watch Ryan for the rehearsal dinner? My guess is that she has always "wanted" Rob and uses the "friendship card" to be close to him. Scandless!

I'm with you on the bachelor party/too close for comfort friendship with Becky - thing. I'd be very PISSED too. Ugh!!!

I can't believe the wedding is in only 5 days!!! I hope this week goes extra smoothly for you and that your honeymoon doesn't get rained out!

You are totally justified in your being pissed, Andrea! I'd be pissed to. Just keep trusting Rob. Hopefully the little BIOTCH will keep her distance. Hang in there, and make sure you get EVERYTHING out into the open so you can enjoy your perfect wedding day!

(((Hugs))) to you Andrea. :) It sure does seem that Bachelor parties cause all kinds of grief before a wedding; it did mine too!

I agree with Rachel on the Becky issue. I think you were totally justified in being pissed.

I hope that the weather works in your favor for your wedding and honeymoon! You need some nice sunshine to relax and let go of all the wedding stress. :)

Iam with all the other ladies I would have been WILD!!!! But might be a good idea to get someone else look after Ryan instead of Becky on rehersal night, hope the weather holds out and you get nothing but sunshine :)

OH hell yeah, I would have been pissed. Pissed is an understatement. Glad things are back to normal. And yeah for the wedding!! So close can't wait to see pics!
