I am planning on renting a room in my best friend's new house. Yesterday, she said that her mom thinks it isn't fair that she's only going to charge me $500. :( My friend also mentioned that her sister suggested that we split the utilities. My friend originally said that she would charge me $500 for rent including utilities. Yesterday, she asked if she can charge me an extra $50 for my share of the utilities since I will be getting my own bathroom and parking spot. She did say that if I want to stick to the original $500 plan, she'd be okay with that, but what was I supposed to say? I said I will pay the extra $50 for utilities. :( I'm a little upset that she went back on her word. I've never liked her mom, and now I feel like I won't feel welcome in my friend's new house (since her mom wants her to charge me much more). I will most likely still move out with my friend, but now I'm not as excited. :(

Also, yesterday my aunt asked if I'd like to go on vacation to Loreto, Mexico this year with her, my uncle, my cousin, and my cousin's 2 kids. She said that she would pay for my food. Unfortunately, there's family drama right now on my mom's side (my aunt is on my mom's side), and when she was asking me this question, she had a really rude demeanor. In addition, my relationship with my cousin is strained. I told her I would think about it, but when I got home later at night, I emailed my aunt, and thanked her for the invitation, but that I am already going to Hawaii this year, and since I used up all my sick leave, I want to save as much vacation leave as I can (just in case I get sick again, and I don't have sick leave). If my aunt had asked me in a friendly tone, maybe I would consider it, but I didn't like her rude attitude. Plus, I heard that there's nothing to do in Loreto anyway. :P

I saw some pictures of myself yesterday, and I was shocked at how fat my face looks! :( I really need to be more careful about what I eat and drink! How am I going to attract a partner if I look ugly??

I'm so glad that tomorrow's a holiday! :D And I only have a 3 day workweek this week!!!

    You are not ugly. We all have a habit of judging ourselves harshly. Sorry that you decided not to go to Mexico. But since your aunt was not friendly when she asked you, I don't blame you for saying no.

    Now repeat after me, you ARE NOT ugly. emoticon

    Well, it's already been said . . .. you are NOT ugly!

    As for the offer to go to Mexico, sounds like you're making the right decision. You don't want to bet involved in drama.

    You and your friend need to agree on what makes the 2 of you comfortable, NOT her Mom.

    HUGS adn good luck to you.

    Hi Spark friend. I would not accept a rude vacation request either. I don't live with friends because there is usually drama which I like to avoid.

    My dear Spark buddy, you are not ugly. You have a lot going on in your life right now. If you can, take a moment to breathe and reflect on your issues with your move and possible vacation. You will decide what is best for you.
