Bratty wants to visit
So....to kick off our nice holiday weekend Bratty texts SO and asks if she can visit sometime in July for one night. Well technically she doesn't want to visit us, she wants to visit her GF who is nearby recovering from surgery, and another college friend who will randomly be in our area for one day.
Bratty (who has a history of making ridiculous plans) thinks she will drive 6 hours, visit 2 people stay one night, and then return the next day.
What is more likely to happen is they will complain of being tired, etc and drag it out for another few days. After family therapy last year, we ironed out rules for visits. We needed to have reasonable notice and a schedule that needed to be adhered to. No more last minute changes.
SO texted her back and reminded her that it sounded fine but we needed to know dates per our agreement in therapy. Silence from Bratty after that.
I got annoyed with Bratty's silence for a day (and she was online posting to FB). So I told SO to just give her a deadline of a week to let us know otherwise we'll assume she isn't coming or made other plans. I don't want this hanging over me all month and we have other guests visiting us (my sister) as well as our own vacation at the end of July. SO did text her the deadline.
More silence. Ridiculous if you ask me and I'm sure she's pouting about having to commit to dates instead of being able to come and go as she pleases. She's probably trying to find someone who'll let her couchsurf instead, which is fine by me. At least we cleared out her room so if she does visit she's demoted to the guest room.
Oh ... and Bratty asked her GF if she could move in with her since it would be 'cheaper'. GF said no thanks for now LOL. Probably worries about the safety of her poor dog that Bratty lost while dog-sitting (the dog is fine by the way).
And....Bratty turns 24 (going on 12) in a couple of weeks. She still has no idea where she'll be living next month. I predict a trainwreck coming...but we'll see!
