My sister and I decided to go. we both cried in the car on the way, it was awful and if it weren't for her i would have not gone.

We were late getting to the church, my fault, still not wanting to go. Lisa called at 1:30 looking for us, we didn't know it was only Gianna being baptized and it was only immediate family. They were waiting for us as beside the evil one, Lori and I were it for our side. My BIL's entire family came up to us, it was really nice of them. Im sure they "knew" the situation.

We did go to lunch, I would have passed but Lori was hungry :roll: As we walked to the restaurant there were rose bushes so we picked some and had a drink at the bar to toast mothers day before everyone got there. the table was set up as a big square so everyone was facing each other. 18 people and were does the evil one sit, right across from us. :evil:
it was awkward, she hasn't seen or spoken to my sister in 2 years. eventually conversation with everyone around us made it better, we survived. On the way home i told my sister i still didn't feel good about being there but its done and over with.

me and lori celebrating "our" mothers day

You and your sister are two brave ladies. When Gianna grows up, she will appreciate her two aunts that kick a** even more.
