surprise party and drama
Monday, September 03, 2018
when my cousins 40th party was over, my dad or one of my siblings decided my mom needed a surprise party. my mom does not want a suprise party. she mentioned this last year. she mentioned it when my brother in law turned 40 and when i turned 40. she would prefer going out for supper with the family.
so last weekeend the planning started even though i reminded them that she does not want a party. my dad picked a date that caused drama with 1 sister and b-in-law so they were mad at my brother and other sister. today there was some drama and both sisters ended the afternoon in tears after going home. my mom is not dumb and picked up on it and then called everyone and said she did not want a party and if we tried throwing her one she was going to be out of town every weekend in october.
so i am sure there may be some bad feelings for a while but i will listen with empathy when they complain and not repeat it to the other ones. also i will work to not get invovled with any petty behaviors and actions
