So this Sunday is my 31st birthday, and a friend of mine derailed my birthday plans, so basically I am doing nothing right now. My mother offered last night that we could do whatever I want today and then go out for dinner. She then proceeded leave before I even woke up. She came back at 4 and we went for an early dinner, to a restaurant she chose.
We then went out to the hot tub for 20 minutes, upon where she offered to watch whatever I wanted. When I came in after her, she was reading a book, and declared that even me talking to someone else was too loud and she needed me to be quiet. I waited 45 minutes, before giving up and going to watch a movie on my own.
Honestly, this isn’t that much different then what I would have done. But I adjusted my plans for the day to make room for doing something with Mom. And twice in a row she offered something she had no intention on following through with.
For most people that probably wouldn’t matter that much, but for me, that ruined my weekend. Like changing a meal at the last minute, changing plans upsets my entire day. Once I plan something I count on it coming to pass. No matter what.
