Sunday I'm supposed to go to my Mother's house. My sisters will be there too, it's her Birthday. My Son starts school Monday & I really wanted to make it short & sweet to get him home & to bed (with the baby) early.
No one has any plans for food & I keep asking them all what are we eating & what to bring food wise. I have to feed my 2 kids. No one else has kids. No one made a plan. So my Mother says "lets order food in". Now, I am really tight on money & I cannot do take out for us (my DH, Me & one kid, I'll bring food for the baby).
My Sister says I haven't decided yet about food. My other sister is just along for the ride. My Mom is on a cooking strike & they said have your DH BBQ for us. So that means I have to bring everything. I am the one who does every holiday/Birthday & I'm fed up.
BTW, I doubt my Mom's BBQ has propane in it either. My Sisters can't have anyone in their homes (I have no idea why they cannot do any event. One sister's home is a museum & the other has a Dog she doesn't want to get upset with company). It has to be done on a Sunday because one sister works on Saturday & has off Sunday & Monday.
So, I think I am just going to flag it all. Stay home. Maybe bring the kids over on a Saturday to give her a gift & bring bagels. Otherwise it's a mad rush to get over there 30 miles each way, eat & get home early anyway. Let the "got bucks take her to dinner".
Thanks for the vent & I'm going anon.
They should write a book about my family, no one would believe it.

So if you decide to go then bring cupcakes and have a little desert mid day and then leave to get home in time to make dinner at your house. Or just skip it and plan a day that works better for you.
