I actually declined and said no for once.... that felt great!

I rarely ever say no or I'm not able to... or you may have to find someone else.... My BFF I've noticed has me watching her little girl more often that usual but, I notice she's online playing Farmville when I have her child and taking her child to school when she supposed to be going to work... instead she's going in later but, I still have her daughter early. I've been sick since wed. last wed. I had her daughter while i could see she was online far into the"dropping off at school time" and i had to pick her up and bring her home until the father could come while she left to go to a scrapbook convention for 4 days.... she could have totally taken her to school and picked her up. So,today i didn't answer her texts with a yes like i always do. i am home sick with my two sick kids. She acted like she was all take your meds so you can feel better but, a few text later would be let me know if you can still watch her.... never answered those text only that of the others so she would get the hint... I'M SICK! Why do I want to deal with you daughter who WHINES about everything that she doesn't get or that people don't stop for her the second she opens her mouth and my two kids all under 4 1/2... That would be 3 kids when I'm sick NOOOOOOOO! So, oh well she had to stay home from work today while her Mother in law that sits for free for the last 4 years goes on vacation with her son my BFF's hubby for 4 days. Tough.... tired of being the since you don't work you can babysit person that everyone does to me. NO! It's nice to get a little of your power back... BFF or not I know people get into the habit of thinking others don't mind but, heck they do once in a while. She watches my perfectly behaved kids 5 times a year on special days for 2-3 hrs while i get her daughter who is a spoiled brat 20+ times a year for special days like anniversary valentines ect....6hrS at a time..... and use to do all dayers before she did preschool.... now they get up at 6am take her to school by 12pm then pick her up at 3:30pm.... watch her and driver her places is no fun... because she's not nice..... picture Angelica from rugrats..... that's her. only child and a girl and she gets everything... walks in and says i'm not watching that turn it. refusing to eat or go pee... taking blankets from my kids even though she doesn't want it... Etc... if she was good... you know what it would most likely be okay and no problem i'd might even jump at it.....
