Irrationally hurt feelings

My dad's colleagues threw a surprise retirement party for my dad tonight. They are also planning some activities for tomorrow as well. It was also a surprise to my brother and I. I can't go home due to my work schedule and the incredibly short notice (I happened to call during the party tonight and found out then). I wish I was there and I am kind of mad that some of the people planning the party didn't let me or my brother know. I would have tried to get off from work and participate in the festivities and the celebration of my dad's hard work. The other thing that hurts is that my brother and his fiance are there and I'm not. I guess I feel like they don't really miss me or need me. It's a pretty crappy feeling when you don't even feel like you are a part of your own family. This is not the first time I have felt like this, but it is the first time it has hurt my feelings this much.

That sucks, Katie! Those bastards! I am sorry to hear that. I wish there was something I could do. Call me if you need some cheering up or just an ear.

KT..you know I've live FAR away from my family for a long time, and I personally like it that way. BUT, I know what you are going through. Sometimes I will call and there will be a family dinner or I will call during a party just like you did and wonder what the fuck I did to not be notified. I mean, I couldn't fly out just for that party, but give a sister a phone call or at least an invitation because its the right thing to do!
I say fuck em...come out to Colorado, I will throw you the best beer party ever and we won't tell them....EVER!!! MISS YOU

Awww, thanks everyone. I really want to come and visit each and every one of you. I have so many places I need to get to, but Chi-town, Colorado, and Madison among other places.

I know you're a Budweiser girl but there are SO MANY MICROBREWS for me to lure you with! And cheese, oh the cheese! And the brats! Oh, and your gool ol' buddy ol' pal::: ME!!!

Peyton said...

Katie, I will go to Madison (if Belle of Madison doesn't mind that I just invited myself) and Colorado (if littlelai doesn't mind either) with you if you want. You could come stay with me, then we could go to Madison from here.

I am all about going somewhere... Maybe we should do a Vegas weekend- OMG! We should so plan a trip to Vegas!

Peyton said...

The more I think about a trip to Vegas, the more I think it is a brilliant plan. Mexico is also fun... plus we could visit the pharmacia (if we feel "sick")

naughty, naughty, peyton :)

Peyton said...

Soooo.... Vegas? How about it?

Peyton said...

For Thanksgiving?

katie g. said...

It would be really cool. If I have a job, I'm in!

littlelai said...

I couldn't do thanksgiving, but you could all come to Colorado and then we could take a 59 dollar flight (one way) to Vegas. If everyone could work out time off work/school or whatever it could be a kick ass time!!!

OR YOU COULD JUST ALL COME TO COLORADO AND CHILL...POOL, MOUNTAINS, WINERIES, BREWERIES RIGHT IN TOWN....ITS A PARTY!

Once you get a job, you will have trouble getting time off. This is our chance. You should live while the living's good!
