I'm just back from the meeting. I was furious and got almost no sleep last night tossing and turning and fuming over the fact that Elizabeth was not invited to the meeting about her affairs. I'd called E up directly I'd heard about the meeting, and told her all about it. This morning she IMed me and told me Con was going to pick her up at 2. I said I was glad because I'd been angry. She said, "WHY." I said I just thought she should be there and now she would, so it was good. When Annie came I expressed (how calm and unfilled with the word "f*cking" that sounds) my displeasure with the original plan as I had thought, "They obviously don't consider her a person or they wouldn't do that." She agreed it had been a bad impulse. The meeting - I tried to keep out as much as possible, but E fielded questions about various things. She was the center of everything to her delight. I told everybody not to plan the people-getting-together-behind-someone's-back thing EVER again. Now if I can get some sleep and stop being so curmudgeonly and exhausted I'll be better off. Con gave me a huge eye for a present, and E gave me a belated birthday presnt. So all's well that ends well, I suppose.
