Exercise and Annoyed

Saturday, June 29, 2013

I am going to continue doing my exercise in spurts! It is really working for me and motivating me to do more - which is always a good thing! I am looking forward to keep seeing my fitness minutes going up - I think that in itself helps build my motivation!

I am annoyed - well have been since yesterday. I invited a bunch of friends to go to a fun place and no one is going. Then the ones that said they were going - started to blow me off and then one didn't tell me he wasn't going anymore. I think that is so rude! I feel bad for my son because I really wanted more kids his age to come so he would have people to ride the rides with. He decided yesterday he didn't want to go anymore and postpone it. I saw the disappointment in his face and it has been bugging me ever since.

Well, I can't control people - that for sure - but still would have liked for them to acknowledge the invitation and then tell me that they weren't coming instead of just not saying anything.
Thanks for listening!

    I've been there, as far as people backing out. It's very aggravating. As far as your spurts of exercise, good for you!

    emoticon On finding an exercise plan that works for you!

    As for the other people, I think you're right about letting it go because you can't control them anyway. I'm sorry your son is disappointed - I know you were trying to do something that would be fun for him. Maybe this just wasn't the right time, and the time you DO get to go will be perfect.

    Hang in there!

    That happens so often with kids around here too - I have watched parents plan for a BIG gathering with LOTS of fun things to do and spending what (to me at least) is a ridiculous amount of money only to have nobody show up. Rudeness seems to have become acceptable conduct and it really bugs me too. Hope you found a way to take some of the disappointment away for your son.

    I'm really sorry that the outing didn't work out and that your son was disappointed.

    The dude that didn't bother to tell you he changed his mind was more than rude! That falls into jerk behavior.

    Hope things work out for the next outing.

    I agree that's completely rude. People should at least have the courtesy to respond one way or the other to invitations like that. It's tough to let those sorts of things "go" -- rather than stay annoyed about it for several days. That's energy wasted on something you could be doing like exercise! :-)

    hang in there.

    Barb!! Keep track of all the people you invited who did not have the courtesy to cancel and don't invited them to activities that include your son. I am sorry. emoticon AND maybe you can invite just a couple of his friends to come so that it will be easier. Give him a hug from Aunt Chelsea.
    Love, Chelsea emoticon
