I don't understand my family. On Monday, I sent an e-mail to my brother Peter confirming the birthday dinner plans for my mom. He sent the message to my older brother Joe who responded on Tuesday and said, "Let's do it." So, I responded with "let's finalize the plan as soon as possible because our cousin has to call mom's friends and confirm they can come to the dinner..." The last statement was from Peter asking Joe to tell Sandra to call mom's friends. Nothing from either of my brothers for a couple of days. So, I called my cousin on Thursday night and asked her "did Joe talk to you?" She said, "What are talking about?" ARGH!!!!!! My cousin was at my mom's house with Peter and her daughter. They just finished dinner. Mom got on the phone and said, "let's do dim sum on Saturday." So, that was the plan. Then yesterday around 5 PM, Joe sent an e-mail asking who is getting the birthday cake. Peter responded and said Joe's wife is picking up the cake for Saturday night and we are having dumplings at Joe's place Saturday afternoon/evening. We can't do Saturday afternoon/evening because my spouse is in a tennis league and plays Saturday afternoon/evening. My brothers had this information since Tuesday. ARGH AGAIN!! I guess my spouse and I will not participate in my mom's birthday celebration. We'll do it when we return from Australia/New Zealand.
