usually it's son's father that is annoying me. today it's my own dad.


son is performing in a concert tomorrow morning. i notified my family in person and in email 4 weeks ago. i wrote it on my parents' calendar. they dropped off his clothes at the dry cleaners so he could wear them to the concert.


just now mom askes me to call her in the morning to make sure she's ready for me to pick her up ???? dad scheduled a maintainance man for the morning and won't be at the concert !!!!

No one can hurt you like your own family can.

I'm sorry that he did this to you and your son. It must have meant a lot to you. When you've calmed down a bit, it might be worth telling your dad just how hurt you are by his behavior and choices, in a calm, measured way.

And by all means, share it with the other side of the family too. They are his grandparents too.

I hope the concert goes wonderfully and that your dad misses out on a spectacular performance.
