Once again the lovely DIL pulled her usual control stunts. Good thing I was actually prepared for something to occur so it was not as devastating as her and the FOO hoped! Here is how the visit went...I went to the scheduled meeting place DS and I agreed upon. Well he shows up, but only has the oldest grandaughter with him! (the one that is 13 and pregnant). There I was holding Valentines Day gifts for both girls, and they knew I had planned to also give both girls birthday gifts and shop with them a little. He was embarrassed and felt guilty, but we really couldn't discuss much since grandaughter was right there. He told me that he was NOT aware until he was ready to meet me that day, DIL and her sister made other arrangements and decided my younger grandaughter needed to shop with DIL's sister for her to buy her a birthday gift instead of coming with DS to meet me. lol Are they nice or what? I know for a fact that the DIL's family ALWAYS hold a family birthday party for the girls (only for HER family though), so I guarantee the DIL's sister was at that party and already in fact gave her a gift. It was just something they did to be nasty since this arrangement was made between me and my son a week ago. Oh well, nothing I can do about it. Son did hug me and was happy to see me and I was happy to see him too. Grandaughter I can tell has an attitude, and said maybe 2 words to me. DS had to tell her to say thank you when I gave her all her gifts even...are you kidding me??? Was she not taught any manners at all? She was too busy with her new MP3 player to visit. He said maybe I can meet him next weekend to see other grandaughter? I didn't really respond to that though because I need to take a moment to think about my response. I think I will say this to him...when you have grandaughter with you, and there is no interference give me a call and we'll meet. I refuse to plan again so DIL can be a witch and play her games, I won't buy into it! lol Then here is the real news item of this story!!! As we parted ways after our meeting, I stopped to talk to a gal that works where my husband works. So lo and behold who did I find sneaking behind me and had been there watching the meeting (she thought I had already left the mall apparently so she didn't see me standing where I was)...DIL'S MOTHER!!! Good grief are these people odd or what? I just shook my head and went about my business. At any rate I am happy with at least seeing my son, and hugging him, so all is well. We will see what happens next!
