Oh my grandmother use to forget my mom and her sister’s birthdays.  I wouldn’t hold it against her.

Sorry that stinks.  I forgot one of my sister’s birthday one year (I have three of them) and she ended up calling me and saying I’m just calling so you can say happy birthday to me and I can stop being mad at you.  I felt really bad, she had been going through a tough time and needed more support than sisters forgetting her birthday (yeah only one of us had called her and it was the day before, whoops), but I was really glad she called me, even if it only half way counts.

I’m so sorry… that sucks.  I can kind of relate, my sister/MOH didn’t even send me a card for my birthday, a few weeks ago.  After she has asked me 4 months ago if I would want a Wii (she would get her 3 adult children to pitch in and the 4 of them would get me one for my birthday).  I said sure, that would be great.  Then… not only did she never get the Wii (which doesn’t totally surprise me) but I didn’t get a single card from her or any of her kids (whom I am very close with and have always taken very good care of!).  Sometimes you have to choose which things you’re going to let get to you and which you are going to let go.  Happy Birthday!

@MsInterpret: I can SO relate.  My mom and I are currently not speaking.  And maybe we never will again. And she blew off my birthday this year too.  So, I know where you’re coming from.   All I can say is, (((hugs)))
