Stick a Fork in Me, Im Done!

Saturday, December 08, 2012

SP since my last post, my life has gone from stressful to stressed to the max-the only way it could be worse would be if someone were ill or trouble at work. Fortunatly, ok on that so far. My daughters birthday party was today, soooo disappointing, I just want to cry. She invited 18 people, ok granted there was 4 invites I held off on mailing til this Wednesday because I was afraid more people would show up than I had paid for. Started out the day thinking I would have about 10 kinds show up. Got 5. I paid $200 stinking dollars. So disappointed. And there was drama like pre-teen girls do. Next year, Im just going to give my kid $200 and call it a day. The dog is sick, she went blind last week all of a sudden, she seemed phyically ok at first, but now is having trouble getting around. She probably had a stroke. We will probably have to put her to sleep. She has to be taken out on a leash to not mess on the floor, sometimes has trouble getting back in the threshold. Its really depressing. i probalby could have called around for headcounts and better managed the party if I hadnt had the extra stress of the dog. But the party was already paid for, nothing I could do to change it, so 12 kins or six, we still had it. Next year I will just have it at home, forget this junk! Now have 2 spending the night, and a third who is staying over til late but not sleeping over. They have been up and down, bored, cant agree on what to do. Everyone wants to watch this one movie except 1. The 1 sulks til they capitualate. Oh the drama. Now they are all doing headstands in the hall, because it is dark and cold outside and my husband says they cant go in the backyard and do them against the fence. Ok, must go now-someone is hurt and I think its mine

    You can't change what has already happened. Just let your daughter know she is loved and every day can be a special day by spending quality time with your child!

    You did a great job planning and executing a wonderful birthday for your daughter. Some elements are not in our control as mothers, but you did your part. Great job!

    I think your idea to have it at home is the key or to give her money and let her and what friends she personally invites have a fun day doing what kids her age do. My son's birthday is in the summer so I just do treats at school since he is still in elementary school just before the end of the year rather than a party. On his birthday we have friends and family over for cake and gelato.
    I am sorry too about the dog but I hope you can decide what to do soon. I will only cause more stress as the days go by if the dog really had a stroke as you suspect.
    On a lighter note the weather has been awesome this week with the cooler mornings and the nice sunny temperatures in the afternoon. I hope you are back to hiking again soon emoticon
