Once again, my family has pulled out the drama card and I’m gonna need some advice on this one. Here’s the situation..... my mother is turning 70 on July 12. And I thought it would be nice if her children gave her a surprise birthday party. So I told my brothers and sisters about the idea and they all agreed that we should do it. The problem was that nobody but me really had the time to dedicate to planning this party.Because I’m a housewife, they all elected me to do everything and I really don’t mind doing it. Now here’s where the situation gets sticky.... I’ve already got everything planned.... the menu, the decorations, the guest list, I’ve even ordered invitations to be sent out. And I did all this by myself without any help from them. Now that everything is planned, they have a lot of ideas or suggestions and they want me to change what I’ve planned.
My older brother calls me a control freak and says that I’m trying to shut them out of the plans. But they didn’t have time so why is everyone having a problem with what I did? Instead of supporting me, they are nit-picking at every little thing that I’ve done. I am so frustrated that I just want to call the whole thing off. Do you think that I’m being a control freak because I won’t do what they want?I just wanted to do something really special and nice for our mother and everyone else is turning it into a big drama-filled production.
