This is happening again.
We’d planned a big 16th birthday party for Punkin’ Pie. As of today, she’s asked us to cancel it; the only people who are coming are her grown-ups (us, Uncle Marc, Auntie and TG, folks like that) and the friend who’s mother insists on chaperoning. The only other person who RSVP’d in the affirmative backed out tonight.
I’ll call Local U. and find out about canceling. Dad’s looking into booking a cruise instead.
I hate this.
