OK, I am having a sleep-over// water day at our girl scout house this weekend.
I mailed out the information on Tuesday of last week. So most of them received them within 2 days of that.
I have to go shopping for the food, craft stuff etc tomorrow because I am having kidney stones blasted Thursday and will not be able to do it after that.I am going to be pushing it to do this still.
I put a dead line on the RSVP for Wednesday by 5:00. Which is when I will be leaving to go shopping. So, I KNOW I will have a few call Thursday and I can almost guarentee one who will just show up Friday. How should I handle them?
I am trying so hard to toughen up and not let them continue to do this to me. But, where/when Do I draw the line. Do I tell them well sorry, but I had the RSVP dead line for a reason .. supplies and food already bought.
I am still hurt by lack of acknowledgement from my Mom dying and my surgery 3 wks ago.
But, this has nothing to do with that. I told them that things are goign to have to change and that they will have to start reading the things I send to them. I have one who will flat out tell me.. well No I didn't read it..its on the floor in my van. so tell me what is going on.. tonight at my dd' birthday party she said that to me. I said..nope its not a scout event. I am here for my dd' .. go to your Yucon and read the letter... Thankfully she is VERY easy going and just laughed it off..But, did go and read it and tell me her DD will be there.Out of my 10 girls I have 4 who have said yes they will be there.. and that is counting my daughter..
The other leader and I have put a lot of time and energy planning this weekend.While I would love to have all of my Troop there..I am tired of being a stepping stone.. ya knw.
Soooo....... whatcha thunk?
