My in laws 50th anniversary is this week and to celebrate it they wanted to recreate a family portrait that we had done about 18 years ago. Well of course as all things involving family, it has blown up into this huge thing. We found out last night that instead of being in the photographers studio mid way between everyone's house, like the original, mid day, my FIL and SIL decided to change it and make it at the beach near her house, 2 hours from us, at 8:30AM. Aside from the fact that this is New England and beaches at flipping freezing this time of year, it means we have to get up at 4 in the morning in order to get to her house for the photo shoot. There are no port o potties on the beach this time of year and we all know what mornings are like for us CDers. It would cost us over $1000 to stay over night because we would need 2 hotel rooms and there is a 2 night minimum stay (Newport, RI, resort town). Plus we all have to dress alike, so I have to buy new clothes for my kids and me that we will never wear again. Luckily, my husband said no way to the time, so now its suppose to be late afternoon, but I am still so mad I could spit nails (thank you prednisone), I'm sure it will show in the pictures. Do they not realize after 30 years of knowing me that this is an issue? My SIL says, well my house is only 10 minutes away. Hello, I need a bathroom in 10 seconds, not 10 minutes! Maybe talking to us would have been nice before they went and changed everything and signed contracts. Oh and originally we were going out for a nice family dinner after the portrait sitting, now we MAY have pizza on the beach, if we can fit it in. So on top of it all, we have to fend for ourselves on the 2 hour drive home.
I flipping hate family!
