Hurt Feelings!

Okay---I know this blog is about quilting, but I also said that occasionally I would talk about life in general. Well, now is the time.

I normally don't talk much about my private reason is it is rather dull, but also because I am a private person, but since I don't have a close friend here, I have to get it off my chest. My feelings are so hurt---

My granddaughter has been chosen for the Homecoming Court at her high school. She is a senior and so it is a big deal. I have always supported my children and grandchildren. When this one was little, she took dance and I came from Chicago and then Jacksonville for every single recital, even for the final rehearsal. I also flew in for any special occasion, just because that is the type of grandmother I am. Well, when my daughter told me about this, she also said she had to have a white formal. I found out where she could purchase one and asked if I could go along. I just wanted to be a part of this special day---anyway, my daughter said yes. Well, this morning she called and said that she and my granddaughter had already gone to get the dress. Now they went yesterday, I was home! Not once did anyone call and let me know they were going. She said they had to get the dress then because she had to take it to school today for the principal to see and determine if it was appropriate (sounds like a good idea). Anyway, I feel so hurt----all she needed to do was to have called me at the very least, but I think she didn't because I just might have been able to go.

Anyway, there is nothing that can be done---I will of course go to the game to see if she is voted in as queen---but my feelings are hurt! Thanks for listening! I am a big girl and I will put on my big girl panties and go on, but still---if any of you have mothers out there and something special is going on with their grandchildren, PLEASE allow them to share, especially if they asked and you said okay!



  1. Oh, man! Why don't they think? I'm so sorry they hurt your feelings, especially since you've been as supportive & helpful to them all. One day they'll realize - at least I hope they do - what a special person they have in their life.

  2. I understand how you feel. They should of callled you, unless they didn't think that it meant so much for you and maybe they had to get it sooner then they thought. I hope it was not intentionally, but you were looking towards going along.
    I don't like when people promise ad then they do something else.

    I hope you feel better now that you let it out!
