My mother-in-law's birthday is near and i am the one to organize the said celebration but i am now in the sorrow moments. As i have posted here about my bad experience this month of November. I forgot to take the list of my mother-in-law's birthday November 23. I am still mourning for my father's death and on November 24 or 25 my husband, my two kids and me will be going to my parents place to attend vigil and to do my responsibility as one of their child. If you are in my situation will you be able to do the assigned work?

I guess and I am supposing that your husband's family fully understands your pain at the loss of your father and your inability to organize and be "in a celebration mood for your mother-in-law's upcoming birthday. If I were in your shoes, I'd talk to my husband and my husband's siblings to cover for me while i am still mourning. And if I were in your shoes, I would EXPECT them to understand where you are coming from. And besides, you are only an in-law...more than anything else, they should be more or less be in the forefront of the preparations because it is THEIR mother's birthday. My condolonces to you and your family.
