It's my party and I'll cry if I want to....

Saturday was my birthday. And boy did I ruin it for everyone. I was in such a horrible mood- later found it due to that time of the month. But I just couldn't be happy or pleased. My kids and Jeff planned a whole day of activities that started with them getting me a bike. Of course I didn't like the style of bike and that just set the mood. I was excited and happy that they bought me it, and I tried to just pretend it was too big for me, but I'm not a good actress. Then they took me to play miniature golf. Not my thing and of course it was a million degrees. All I kept thinking was that I really wanted to be at the pool.

After mini golf they took me to eat at Quaker Steak and Lube. Except I really don't eat wings and never can find anything on the menu. My husband wanted to try the Atomic Wing Challenge and they were having some sort of festival. You have to eat 6 wings to beat the challenge- Jeff was only able to eat 2 wings. And the festival wasn't really geared toward children. So we came home and I felt battered and bruised.

Sunday Jeff really let me have it. He said it made him sad that they planned this whole day and I was miserable and they could tell. He felt bad because he spent a lot of time searching for a bike for me and he said I ridiculed it. I didn't. I took a picture of it and sent it to my friend. I had a feeling they were getting me a bike and I said to my friend he'll probably pick out the one and only style I don't like. And sure enough he did. It's a nice bike, but it's a touring bike and I wanted a mountain bike. It rides nice, but it feels like the wheels are too big and the handle bar is too small.

I feel horrible. I enjoyed being with my family, but I couldn't shake my bad mood. This morning I bawled my eyes out in the shower.

What is wrong with me!!!

Aww that's rough. Are you able to exchange the bike for a new one? It's the thought that counts, but you want to be able to use your present.

Yes I can return the bike- but he made me feel so guilty about it!
