Let's talk for a minute about a pet peeve of mine, shall we?
Commitment. Why do people have so much difficulty making and keeping commitments? Seriously, is it just my peer group (20 somethings), or does this happen across the board? Here is an example.
Now that I stay at home, I need to go a little more out of my way to see my friends and get some 'me' time. No big deal. So, to ensure that I get this 'me' time on a regular basis I sent a message/email to approximately 50 friends on Facebook asking them if they would like to be part of a Bunco group that meets once a month to hang out and have fun. ONCE A MONTH PEOPLE. I even set it to a regular day, the second Wednesday of the month so that each month we could plan our schedules accordingly. I also made it very clear that if you were the type to flake on such plans not to join as we need a regular number each month to play.
I got about 12 people to respond, and at our first meeting we had 10 actually show up. The next month we had 8 show up. This month...5. Seriously? Luckily the 5 of us are pretty awesome and had a great time together, and decided we are going to transform it from a Bunco group to a pot luck dinner group. I'm all for that as I LOVE to cook and try new things.
It just really upsets me that people don't value the commitments they make. I know it's just a silly get together - but it still irks me. Like the hostess for this month had no idea how much food or drink to get because hardly anyone from the group RSVPd. She asked over and over who was coming, and only the same few responded. That's just rude if you ask me.
Phew, felt good to get that off my chest!
On a lighter note, I had a great time hanging out with best friend today. She came over and we had coffee and tea and chatted for hours. Hubby is in Atlantic City with some friends for the day, so we had a girls day (well, G was here so it wasn't only girls). My friend loves owls, so I made this card for her. (The photo is a bit dark, as I took this at night in my crafting hole)
will update later...I can barely keep my eyes open! (mostly PTI though)
