Are you sick of reading about this? I am sick of discussing it...especially when there are many other things going on in the world...just not my life.
Sunday, I received the inevitable text message from Cupcake:
I cannot go to Chicago because I can't find anyone to watch Lovee. Maybe we can do spa day on Thursday?
Lovee--her new dog. When I suggested her taking to the pet day care (like I did so many times when I had a dog and traveled); she said that was not an option since they are in the middle of housetraining. I can deal with that. Buuuut...she's had the dog awhile and to me that excuse could have been brought up like last week.
Thursday Spa Day--What the? I'd (we'd) be in Chicago that day.
It is okay to back out of a trip when its a group, but not 2 people. Who does that?
When I spoke to her she was under the assumption that since she was unable to go we'd reschedule the trip for a later date. Is she crazy? I am never planning anything with her, ever, again.
But her backing out was foreseen (by us all) last week and she wants out on Sunday?? Three days before the trip.
I am almost convinced that she never did buy the ticket to begin with.
Then it hit me, she was half-right. It is cheaper for me not to go than go alone to Chicago.
Then I got mad. But I was on the plane coming back to Texas. When I landed I texted her if she could discuss this tomorrow? (today) She said yes.
Believe me, she is getting a mouth-full starting with the original cupcake dillema all the way to this.
