Iced Out

Monday, December 09, 2013

Today is my 51st birthday. I originally had two "appointments" today. A luncheon with a friend and a dinner out as well with a couple of friends. Then this morning woke to glistening roads and deck stairs...Ice with a layer of snow on top. So now it looks like both appointments are canceled. Although there is still some slight hope of the earlier appointment taking place...if my friend can get out of her community where the roads are bad.

So here I am 51 years old in the house with a grouchy husband swearing his head off. I was so much looking forward to getting out of her.

I"m in a lot of pain this morning...and disappointment hurts as well. It seems I can never have a nice celebration day EVER. Things always go wrong and I always end up in misery after having to hear cussing and complaining from my family. It's tempting just to forget about days that are supposed to be special because when things go hay wire as they always do, it would be so much less hurtful if it wasn't on a special day.

I'm sorry about being a damper at a holiday time. I would SO much like to have a nice hoiday--It just looks like I'm in the wrong family for that to happen.

    That is it! Absolutely the last dang straw. I am heading to NY in January to pick up our beef order and I swear I am going to come by there and clean clocks in your house. I am mad enough at myself for being BLAH, but there is no reason for anyone to be ugly to you, Cynthia.

    Let your husband walk in your shoes for one day (I wish you wore heels!) and see if he can walk at all. Then he would really complain. What is it about men that they get to rain on their wife's parade and get away with it? Do you own a cast iron skillet? I know you can't lift it, but I don't want to carry a deadly weapon across state lines! LOL Maybe your friend can swing it for you and pop someone right in the tushy and get their attitude adjusted.

    Do you ever just stay in your room and refuse to come out? Think they would get the hint at that point? UGH!

    I am sorry that your birthday plans were postponed, but maybe it will clear up enough so you can get out tomorrow. Maybe you should sneak out for a sleepover at someone's house so you can see smiling faces and soak in the happiness. For your birthday, I wish you peace and solace and heartwarming love - just for you.

    Gentle hugs from the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Woman!

    I hope your day gets better; I've had my share of disappointing birthdays also.
