To set the scene...I work full time but have weekends off. We are leaving on vacation on Wednesday which just happens to be my grandson’s 5th birthday.
My son works odd shifts, and my DIL’s mother is visiting from out of town, so it is a bit difficult to arrangeA get together. I thought it would be nice to meet for coffee downtown yesterday, and I could give my GS his gift.
DIL agreed to meet for coffee at 2, then just before changed it to 3. Then she said she wasn’t well so would come by for coffee visit in the morning.
I have made a treat, got ready for a visit, but it is almost noon, and no word.
I have some running around to do, and am taking out my MIL who is 89 for dinner this evening, so don’t really want to wait around all day then have them all show up at 4 this afternoon, then have to rush them out the door.
I love them all and am more than happy to have a visit, but wish she would commit to a time.
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
