Yup, Terri this is pretty much how I've felt the last two nights especially tonight.
Tonight, we celebrated Sunshine's birthday & I'll get more into that tomorrow but right now I wanna just get my chest dusted off. All was going well, everyone was having a good time, Sunshine just finished opening her gifts & there was one last one from us. We got her the penny phone from US Cellular which happened to be an iPhone. Well, Trouble had a frickin' fit, threw C off her lap, banged her way past Jill & Chelsie to run upstairs and stayed up there the remainder of the party. She was pissed that Sunshine got an iPhone. That's what Sunshine asked for & that's what was a penny. Back when Trouble turned thirteen, they didn't have iPhones as penny phones & I've always told her that if she wanted something different, she had to wait until she could upgrade & then pay for it herself.
Of course, at one point, Goose is upstairs arguing with her while we still had guests here. It was so damn embarrassing. I'm so sick of Trouble's shit! I know exactly how Sunshine feels as Trouble has successfully ruined two of my birthdays in a row. Then, of course, I'm trying to make Sunshine feel better but the damage is done. Sunshine told me that the only thing about going to her mom's for her birthday is that Trouble cannot ruin the actual day for her.
I just cannot understand how one person can be so disrespectful, selfish, bitchy, snotty, etc. It's one thing to do it to me but to do it Sunshine, I'm majorly pissed! & the fact that Goose makes excuses for Trouble really gets me. They both owe Sunshine a HUGE apology & I told Goose that. Sunshine said that Goose apologized to her in passing but she didn't think she would get an apology from Trouble. She didn't even want to sleep on the same floor as Trouble (their bedrooms & a bathroom are on the second floor). I know that now that we figured out Trouble's issues that it's gonna take time but I just am so tired of dealing with this shit on a pretty much weekly basis.
I know that I shouldn't but I've gone to bed angry with both Goose & Trouble that last two nights. I just cannot stand it anymore...
