My mom's 70 today. And we ended up having a row in the middle of a supermarket. Because I forgot that we had guests coming on Saturday. That's it. I simply forgot. I was so focused on getting everything we usually buy when we go shopping, that I forgot. And she literally told me, "You congratulated me this morning, yes, but you don't want me to have a nice party, one in 70 years!" And I just... stared at her. Because apparently, I was "looking at her wrong" when she told me a few days ago that she wanted to make refreshments - all I did was suggest we should maybe make canapés and not anything big since people will be coming in the afternoon, after lunch, so they won't be hungry anymore! - and that I didn't want her to bake anything, I wanted her to give her guests some cheap roulade - all I did was tell her that there was no need to bake a roulade since there was one at home already, if she wanted a B-day cake, I would drive her to the shop and we could get some really nice one - and she kept throwing that in my face in the middle of the supermarket. And I just... stared at her. And then I swallowed my anger - it's her B-day, for cryin' out loud! - and I told her that we could still get everything necessary for the canapés since we were still in the shop. And she snapped at me that no, now she didn't want it anymore, and she stomped off. And since then, she's been giving me the silent treatment, for hours now. Whatever I ask her, it's always "No!" and "I don't care!" And I'm just...

My head hurts and I'm tired of this shit. I got her a coughing sirup because she has a cold. I got her a B-day present I saw her admire for a long time but she never got it for herself. I got her books and I downloaded TV shows for her to watch. I got us a new bin because the old one was too heavy for her and I paid for a new roof. I repaired the door handle that broke off in her hand and I repaired the spigot that stopped working on her... and apparently, it's still not enough because I don't want her to have nice things. I'm tired of maintaining peace.

For cryin' out loud! I simply forgot! That's all!
