The Christmas Drama Begins
Well, kind of. I am actually pretty proud of DH and myself.
DH asked me to double check his text to BM (he always does), he did good. It was simple and to the point :
BM, our son mentioned that he would rather spend the first half of Chirstmas break with us this year so that he doesn't miss basketball practice. I am fine with either half of winter break, just let me know what you would prefer soon as we are starting to look at plane tickets.
After I mumbled yeah, looks good. He said that he is going to follow up in a week and if she doesn't answer just send her the tickets we buy. - that got an "cool" from me. THEN he said he isn't going to waist his leave time on Christmas this year. He would rather us take a trip in the spring, just the 2 of us! The trip to Iceland that I have been obsessed about for like a year and a half!
I was dumbfounded! I said that I really appriecate that and did remind him that over the holiday's he rarely works past noon on work days anyway, so it sounds like a plan. The teenagers rarely wake up before then anyway!
We are both sure she won't respond, I am 99% sure he won't show either way. He will be 17 at that point. The judge won't enforce anything, I think we ALL know that. I just hope we can get a decently priced plane ticket so that our last "throw $ in the trash over SS" isn't too disgusting.
