Well it is Halloween and I am alone again, and will be for the rest of the weekend. I thought maybe my daughter would be here for my birthday but I guess not. I am sick of it being all about her and what she wants. I took her to her boyfriends house because he said he didn't have the gas to come and get her, then I find out they went to pick up one of his friends for tonight.....boy did I get hosed. I hate this weekend and will glad when it is Monday and I don't have to face my birthday alone again.

hey beth,
i know how you feel about ungrateful children. we're we ever like that when we were young? steph did the same thing to me last year. they took off for some friends house and left me all alone on my birthday. i wasn't impressed and when they came and wanted something from me they didn't get it. i wonder what this birthday will be like.

I know what you mean, I feel like I just got hosed into taking her.....and that makes me feel stupid. I know better than to get hosed like that. Her dad sent her phone charger to her over night and I won't go out to the mailbox and get it, if she is not home then tough.

Happy Birthday, Beth.
I was alone on my birthday when my husband was transfered out of town and we hadn't sold our house, yet. I went out with my girlfriend that day and bought myself a pair of cowgirl boots, came home and drank wine and danced by myself to CMTV with my new boots on.....so fun.
Debb...make your plan, now.
