I like facebook but, in my heart, I've already left it for twitter. And I'm totally cheating on twitter with tumblr.
I don't think she's blowing you off or anything. I just think she's flakey. Frankly, I have a difficult time maintaining friendships with flakey people because I do often end up internalizing that behavior as disrespect or dismissiveness (and these type of people probably read me as demanding & overly structured & punitive). It's just not a personality I tend to mesh well with at all. That said, I think it might be easier to deal with in a neighbor as you can do the...
"Covering your plate" is the cultural norm where I am from (NY metro area). It's why I am often filled with dread when the big wedding invitations arrive. Hotel + dress +shower gift + mani/pedi + shoes&accessories + dh's suit dry cleaned + actual cash wedding gift = a good $500+.

Monday has gotten much better so far! I'm still waiting on more news about my SIL who gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday but is quite ill with meningitis. Baby is doing well and I'm hoping to hear soon that SIL is improving as well.
I woke up rageful. Not really sure why, except that I didn't get enough sleep, dp was slow as molasses, the kitchen was a wreck and kid1 is home ill. Oh, and it's Monday. I'm working on snapping out of it. Kids2 & 3 are off to school and dp has left for work. Good stuff I'm trying to concentrate on: I'm in my office and not my bedroom! Sun is out and birds have taken over the back and side yards and are all singing pretty birdie tunes! Cheesy grits for...
