Its BM's weekend coming up and she's already called DH to pawn SD16 off on us again. She "may have to work" is what she said. Conveniently, SD wants to visit a college campus on Saturday 3hrs away. Her coach called for practice & fundraising for Saturday too (since Easter is on Sunday.) That would mean that BM would have to spend the whole day with her own daughter doing what SHE needs - not what BM wants to do. Solution: call DH.
Last weekend, we pulled our weight; did all the transporting, fundraising, talent showing, raffling, car washing (you get the picture) and BM not ONCE showed her face. We even squeezed a family BBQ & party in there too. So, SD's upcoming competition money (bus, hotel, spending cash) is pretty much a done-deal, thanks to our busy, INVOLVED weekend.
Now that its BM's turn and she found out what's necessary, all of a sudden, she may "have to work." Gimme a break, lady! DH had to work last weekend too...but he MADE time by tag-teaming and rotating with me. For once, I want her to get involved (and not just when she fears SD & I are too close) and STAY involved in her daughter's world. She has relatives, a steady boyfriend etc. that she can ask. WHY call DH for every little fucking thing?! This isn't an emergency. Its cheerleading practice & a college visit for crying out loud!
Its YOUR weekend lady. This is the schedule that YOU put together. We've done our part, DO YOURS! Dayummmmmm!
