Well, we're not going to be spending Sunday/Monday at my parents house for my dad's birthday ... My dad has to work on Monday (he owns his own misting company) and so even if we were there, we wouldn't be spending any time with him at all, so there's no point in us driving 5 hours each way to see him if we don't get to more than 5 minutes before he leaves for work in the morning. I am really bummed out, I was looking forward to visiting my parents, and they were looking forward to spend time with Danny.

Now it looks like we won't see them until October for Danny's birthday, and then who knows ... we won't be there in November for my birthday (we'll be in Seattle WA), or Thanksgiving (DH has to work) ... we won't be there in December (we'll be in WA again the first week, and around Christmas and New Year's DH works full time every day). In January, DH can't take any time off because of refund fraud and it's his inventory for the store.

Which leaves February ... and with any luck we might be moving to WA that month.

Sigh. So I don't know when I'll be seeing them after October. I'm pretty bummed out about it.

I'm sorry. That is a bummer. I hope it works out so that you get to see them more often.

I'm sorry you won't see your parents.

What does a misting company do?

Well then, not seeing them for a long time, isn't that a good enough reason to just go anyways. Doesn't he have his evenings off? You guys could do dinner at least or visit in the evenings. My ILs come down all the time and we both still have to work, they just hang out during the day and we are home in teh afternoons/early evenings. It's plenty of time to visit. Just a thought. Any amount of time is better than no time until Feb.

No, it's not possible for my parents to drive up here because of the distance. It's a good 5 hour drive. My mom doesn't like driving on the freeway, and my dad works all the time, and my mom rarely gets two days off in a row. They're at the age where it tires them too much to drive that sort of distance.

They want us to come down in late September when my brother is visiting from college for a week, but, I doubt we'll be able to go. She did mention about meeting somewhere in between, with my brother driving her. Not too sure though.

Oh well.
