months ago I arranged to leave ds (who has spd and a really hard time in stores) with a friend and spend the day shopping with my mom and dd. when asked what I wanted for my birthday by my mom and husband I told them money for our trip. finally a fun birthday!
I just cancelled it. ds is getting a cold and I don't want him to infect my friends kids. he's crying. I'm completely bummed.
today we had planned a family bike ride to the park and a picnic.
plus I just discovered yesterday both of my kids went through growth spurts and need new shirts.
I'm bummed. I should have known something would happen to ruin my plans. instead I get to stay home cleaning and caring for my sick ds and almost recovered dd.
and yes things could be worse but there has only been 1 birthday my entire life that has been good no matter how hard my family tries to make it otherwise. birthday parties nobody showed up to, getting up early for the first day of school back from break (uggh that reminds me I have to start homeschooling again tomorrow), illnesses, hubby s work schedule, something always ruins any plans that we have.
I hate my birthday.
