so we had been planning dd's bday party for 2 months and it was gonna be western theme at an arena in town. i had the place booked and ready, bd was in charge of everything else. bd told me that his parents were gonna take charge and get things together to make it easier on my pocket. well, they didn't come through...i bit my tongue and started calculating my funds to see what i could afford even if it was something small. i told bd that i was gonna make something small at peter piper. he was ok with that. i then asked him what time i should make it for (being that he works weekends) and he said well i don't get any weekends off you know that, so why ask?! so then i asked him NICELY; how was he going to make it to the other party. he said he would go on his lunch break. really?!?! who does that?!? when i told him about the switch to something smaller i told him that i didn't want any money from him for the party, that all i wanted was for him to be there. how the fuck can he tell me that he doesn't get weekends off when he just had last saturday off. he flipped and told me that i always have to make things more difficult than what they are and that i sound like a bipolar person. how does he expect me to keep my cool when he's constantly changing things?!?! i'm so upset! but in the end, i do things for my dd and i could care less if he isn't there. i know she will be having WAY too much fun to even notice that he isn't there.
*one thing to surely set me off would be if his whole family shows up for the free meal!
