So, I have been really busy trying to organise Ben’s 30th Birthday skiing trip…. he wanted to go with his brothers and make it a family affair….. they didn’t want to go and couldn’t afford it either. I decided to put my head down and organise something for him. I finally worked out the dates we can go and the destination I want to go too….. – for anyone that knows me, that in itself is a pure miracle.
However…. nothing can go quite so smoothly I hear you say. You would be right, nothing ever did run smooth in my life. We visited Ben’s parents last night and there was an announcement at the table….. I thought oh ok this is news. it’s also my bro in laws 18th Birthday, so presumed it was something to do with that as I knew there were plans in the pipeline. Anyway, low and behold my mother in law decided to drop the bombshell she had organised Ben to go skiing with his younger brothers and the small one turning 18…… to AMERICA!!
Now I know what your all thinking how darn nice is that…. but and there is a big but. I would have to pay for Ben to go Skiing and for everything, flights etc. They would be staying in a timeshare type apartment two hours from the nearest resort, only there for 4 days and on 3 of those days his other brother will be away in business meetings. That’s how it all came about, the older of the two that are going has to go there for business…. (all expenses paid for him) and thought he’d take the youngest with him, so he could be in America on his 18th Birthday however he too would have to pay for himself.
I may be completely stupid and horrible but I was preety pissed about this idea, firstly I had involved everyone in the plans I have and believe me I have quite a few plans. I have asked them all for certain things and nobody apart from his sister has got back to me. I think to myself, yeah all good of them and then at the last minute it’ll be me running around like a headless chicken and for them to take all the credit for the effort.
It turns out Ben was preety pissed too, firstly for them not involving me in the decision, I have been married to Ben for 7yrs now and have been quite close to his family. I am helping his mother out in her business too for god sake. Secondly because it was only 4 days and not on a skiing resort and not with all his brothers. Thirdly, I was on the phone to his mum a couple of days ago and asked her what she was planning for the youngests 18th and she said I have a plan. I asked what and she specifically didn’t tell me, when all along it was this trip.
Anyway I feel I can no breathe after getting it all out my system!
