I had a job interview today. I think it went well. It was another restaurant job, but it's with a place that is much closer to my house and it's an already established place which is a good thing. People already know about it and such.
So, my cousin Jenn is pregnant and she's giving birth to her first baby in a few months. They are having a baby shower for her in September and I want to fly back to Maryland so bad for the shower. I haven't been to Maryland in a few years and I would just LOVE to go back and visit for a few days. I'm really missing crabcakes and crab chips and crab balls and steamed crabs. I miss my cousins and all of the friends I have reconnected with on facebook. I miss Ocean City and the waves and the water and the grass. Don't get me wrong. I still love Vegas. I just want to go back and visit.
So, my cousin said she would love to fly me out for the shower. Like, I wouldn't have to pay for it! I called my mom and I was totally psyched!!
She pulls this shit... "Well, you father and I were going to go back to Maryland for the shower and we thought you'd stay here and watch Opey". I was like "no way!! I already told you guys that I wanted to go back for the shower and anyway, your next door neighbors will watch Opey". She's like "no, we can't leave him with the neighbors he's not that kind of dog". What kind of DOG? The kind that is so spoiled that he is going to ruin a family vacation because he's too good for a kennel or for the neighbors to come over and watch?
Don't get me wrong. I love Opey to death. I love the dog with all my heart. But, what is wrong with the neighbors taking care of him for a couple of days???? Having a dog shouldn't mean that you can never ever ever go on a vacation with your family.
I guess I'm the most annoyed because I told her just a day or two about how much I miss Maryland and how I want to go back for the shower and then she just goes and makes plans to go back and assumes I'll just watch Opey and doesn't even include me.
So, I did what any mature, responsible, reliable, 36 old woman would do in this situation, I hung up on her. Classy huh?
