As you can tell from reading previous blogs, last week was my birthday. I don't care too much birthday celebrations or anything like that. All I ask is acknowledge the day. So, you can guess my disappointment when it's a week later and I have gotten nothing from my parents, not a card, phone call, or anything. WTF?!?
Now, I do know things have been a little hectic around there. This being my little brother's senior year of high school, my dad having some issues with his colonoscopy, and my mom having to have some kid of procedure done last week. So, I'm hoping that they just got too busy to send it and it'll be coming soon. I mean, I go out of my way to send them cards for their birthdays, and respective parent's days. Would it be so wrong to ask for something in return?
I know it's better to give than to receive and all, but last time I went "home" I felt so unwelcome it's a wonder I even stayed as long as I did. No wonder I haven't been home in 3 yrs! Hopefully this year, I can make it back there, but this lack of acknowledgement isn't exactly making me want to go out of my way to make that 5 hr drive, especially with gas prices the way they are!
Maybe I'm just being a brat about this whole thing, but that's how I feel. I love my parents and wouldn't be where I am without them, but seriously, it's not like I'm asking for money, just a card that says "Happy Birthday." Oh well, maybe it got lost in the mail. *SIGH*
