Bratty vs. Grandma, Round Two
We had SO's family zoom call yesterday, and towards the end Bratty mentions to Grandma that she'll email her some flight information about her visit.
As you may recall, Bratty tried to visit Grandma in May, booked ridiculous flights with 12 hour layovers, and made Grandma so anxious that Grandma told Bratty not to visit or to 'visit later'. So I guess Bratty is taking Grandma up on the 'visit later' and is planning to travel in late August. I guess we'll see if Bratty's learned anything and books normal flights this time, and if Grandma's anxiety returns closer to Bratty's visit. Honestly at 88 I think Grandma really lives day to day so we'll see how she feels before the visit.
Also I figured since Bratty's booking plane tickets from her current location to visit Grandman - then that means that Bratty has given up on the idea of moving back to our area to attend another post-bacc program. I'm not upset at all about that turn of events :) Apparently Bratty still doesn't know where she will go and I'm starting to wonder if she sh*t-canned the whole idea for another year at least. Most classes would start late August so if she's heading out to visit Grandma that would seem to be a big conflict, but who knows.
In other news, Bratty turned 24 last week. She celebrated by going to Denny's since they give out a free Grand Slam breakfast on your birthday. I had a hard time shutting my trap and not pointing out that a Grand Slam breakfast at Denny's is not vegan but clearly that wouldn't accomplish much. Bratty wanted to take time off this week but her boss told her no since she had already taken two weeks off this month to help out Uncle Jim so it was back to work for Bratty. She did go over to Uncle Will and Jim's house over the weekend for a birthday/thank you for helping them out dinner.
So, any bets on if the Grandma visit will actually happen this time? SO and I are heading out there ourselves next week for a couple of days on our way back from Florida so maybe we'll get some more insight then.
