OMG, she's gonna drive me crazy today! She had a ride with her friend to her dr's appointment. It's 45 minutes from her house. What does she do. She decided's to have a pity party, (I knew there was going to be a problem as soon as she answered the phone, she has a true whine to her voice when she's in that mood) and decided she's too much of a burden to everyone with the rides and such. Told her friend she absolutely would NOT accept a ride to the doctor and is taking the bus. In normal weather conditions this is bad enough, she has to transfer twice to get to the area she needs to be in, but it's supposed to be 105 here today. The hottest day so far this year. Thats real temp. With the heat index it may go as high as 115. She's going to kill herself out there in this heat. I won't even walk to the mailbox. I managed to get that great hulking van of mine in the garage even, it was taking so long to cool off that by the time it did we were home again.
Theres nothing I can do about this. I told her my daughters cheer schedule and also that if she could make her appts on days where there was no practice I'd shift everything else on my schedule to take her to the doctor. Nope. Wouldn't hear of it. I wasn't really worried about this appt. as I knew she already had a ride. She cancelled it AFTER she heard the weather report. Mom plays the martyr once again.
If she doesn't manage to put herself in the hospital she's going to complain about this forever. In addition I may end up getting calls from the aunts (who won't take her anywhere, one of which is much younger, drives all over the place, and only lives a block from mom) because she'll tell them I wouldn't take her and left her to take the bus. This is typical for mom.
Okay, just venting today. It's already started out crazy. Doesn't look good for the rest of the day either. AAAAAaaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!
