It will be a $5 Little Cesar's Pizza Tonight for dinner, thank you!

February 22nd, 2012 at 10:09 am

Thank you for lending support to my post of yesterday. It is obvious that I don't do well with unprovoked confrontations. I wish I could say that there was less drama, younger daughter was upset by what friend's mother is saying to parent of another friend. Oldest son said that younger sister of friend (middle child for my "friend") made him feel uncomfortable in class by saying on more than one occasion "your sister made my sister cry." OK ... my message after all of this was "Everyone has an opinion, whether right or wrong. Let's go have a snack and watch a movie."

At this point it would serve no purpose to let my kids see how much this woman rattled my chain. I did talk to my "inner circle" about this, my brother and best friend. My brother's advice: Ignore. Those who want to manipulate with disorganization and changing the rules of the game want attention. Ignore her! My best friend's advice: Aw, she's just nuts. Give *M* a hug and tell her we'll go out soon for ice cream. Lesson learned here: My inner circle has my back, despite the issues of the moment they face. They've got my back.

I saw my "friend" at Mass today (Ash Wednesday) and she left before Mass was over. When I got home I saw her husband called from his cell phone and didn't leave a message. I am officially done with this, done talking about it and am giving no more audience to nonsense. Our Lenten journey as a family has begun and I'll happily move along, saying a prayer for the family. If my daughter wants to socialize in a week or two, that is fine. I do feel that her daughter will be hurt the most by a falling out with my daughter. But I don't trust her mother to accurately portray what I said to her. Enough!

And since it is Lent, and we're meat-free today, it will be Little Cesar's cheese pizza party pack for dinner tonight! Fish sticks and tater tots on Friday.

Thanks again for the support. I feel like this is a place I can come and share some things and get some general support, even though non-financial. Smile

    Yay for Little Ceasar's! Pizza pizza. And the menfolk have the advantage of NOT getting into hissy fits about social stuff! (now if we could just extrapolate that trait to international politics...)

    Add me to the support list. I have a 12 y.o. daughter and her best friend lives next door with the 'perfect' family. The mom is my friend, and honestly does not have a bad bone in her body. I usually admire and try to emulate that, but am just not a CHEERFUL type (more of the serious smart geek type). So I get LOTS OF 'why can't we have what they have' from my daughter. Just last week we had to put out pretty place settings on the table from Pier 1 (cause that's how their table looks), and next year the Christmas tree has to be COLOR COORDINATED!! just like theirs...

    I hope somehow the understanding everyone in the situation needs will come to them. Even the kids.

    Laura: You might remember my post a while back about one of DD's friends getting bullied on the playground. This same kid had a big hissy fit at DD's party, walked around telling each girl whether she liked them or not, announced to one (who burst into tears) that she doesn't like her at all because she was mean to her when they were 5. This kid is 10 now. Some folks have issues that we just don't know about. I think you're completely right to focus on Lent and control only what you can control. We got your back too!
