gobble gobble

Hope y'all in America had a great Thanksgiving day. I hope it was spent with family and friends that you actually enjoy spending time with. hehe

Ours wasn't too bad. Watching the 3 dogs going nuts playing was quite fun. I managed to finish 2 rows of the Galveston shawl. It is soooo slow going. For some reason my needles kept pulling out of the stitches. Thankfully I'm pretty good at picking stitches back up in lace. Lord knows I've had enough practice. hehe

The kid of course pretty much refused to eat. All attention had to be on him as he sighed and groaned each time I told him to take a bite. In the end he ate a bit of mashed potatoes and corn. He had one little bite of turkey. He wouldn't touch the stuffing or the green beans. We did manage to keep from having the whole thing turn into a yelling and screaming match.

I gave my folk their anniversary gift early. Their anniversary isn't until Monday, but I gave them a dinner at a nice restaurant in town. I didn't want my mom to have to cook her own dinner that night. Of course that still couldn't be without controversy. About a month ago, I called my bro and asked him what we should do for their anniversary this year since it is their 30th. We agreed on dinner and a gift certificate for a nursery or something. I told my bro that I would take care of the dinner reservations and such since he is 2 hrs away and he could take care of the other. So a week later I called him and told him where I found for them to eat and said I would take care of that part. I didn't ask him what he had come up with. Well anyway, last night late, I get an email from my mom that bro had told her that the dinner was supposed to be from both of us. He and his wife forgot their card at home and I still have no clue what their part of the gift is. I just put mine and Nick's name on the dinner because I told bro that I would take care of that part and he had his part. So now I look like the ass. When I'm the one that came up with the idea. I'm the one that found the restaurant. I'm the one that put the money in the card. And so far as I've seen bro hasn't done shit. grrrrrrr

Add to that, I called to talk to Mom this morning but she was out shopping. I talked to Dad and told him about the whole deal. And he COMPLAINED that the restaurant was too far away. ggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Excuse me for picking a nice restaurant on the river instead of picking the crappy family restaurant in the next town over. Hell at least dinner would have been half as much there. *sigh* Nothing is ever good enough for that man. Especially if it comes from me.

And it doesn't help that I was up half the night. Well most of the night. I read Mom's email right before I went to bed and my stomach decided it was not time to go to bed. It got nasty around 1am. I hate dry heaves. I slept in until 9, but I didn't go to sleep until after 3:30. I could so easily just go back to sleep right now but my tummy is still not happy. *sigh* I may have to risk it though cause I can't concentrate on anything anyways.

I've given up on doing nice things for my parents. Several times I've given them expensive tickets to a play or concert only to hear they "didn't like the section they were sitting in" or "an understudy was playing one of the major parts" or "parking at that place is a pain". Now I just get gift certificates to a restuarant they like and leave it at that. Not that they don't complain about that "the waitress didn't come back to fill out coffee for almost 20 minutes" or "I wanted the beef on the specials but they had run out". If I get that complainy when I get old my kids should just fu**ing shoot me.
