Mary Poppins and my popped bubble of happiness
Just here to vent.
A few weeks ago, I co-hosted a party. A garden party. SD16 B/M helped set up and clean up and was paid $60 for her efforts. She had a great time and socialised with my vry nice friends. There were a few kids there and she was invited to one of thems birthday party to which she said she wanted to go.
Everything seemed really great (back then). She really was a hit with my friends and she really liked them in return. She came out of her shell and we had some really great conversations.
The birthday party is a trip to see Mary Poppins musical on and outdoor stage. Its been getting rave reviews, and selling out.
Last weekend, When SD16 B/M was at her mothers, I went ahead and told my friend to get a ticket for me and one for SD16 B/M as she had wanted to go. WELL. Cut to today.
Texted a few days ago "do you still want to go to Mary Poppins? We got tickets for this Saturday (tomorrow).
Texted again the day after "please let me know if you are wanting to go to Mary Poppins, and also let me know if you cannot".
Texted again last night "Ok, so no response means I had to take you out of the attendees list. Sorry, but you didnt follow through."
I walk to my car this morning just as her mother Toxic Troll is dropping her off. I get in my car and am fiddling with things. She walks right past me, no acknowledgement, not a hello, not a wave nothing.
I had asked Husband to let us work things out, and not say anything to her about it. But now Im curious what badness I committed to allow no response. That ticket was $18. Im still going, my friends will be there with me. I promised to reimburse for them.
Steplife sucks today. Im seriously done. I dont even want to know why the no response.
