Maybe it's my hormones again but I'm super frusterated with my SIL/BIL. Last spring BIL (DH's brother) came home from Iraqu and really wanted us to come see him and his fam in San Diego. That was fine with us, we just asked them to pic a time that worked for them and we'd by tickets. So, in July we bought our tickets for Labor Day weekend.
They've been kind of weird the last couple weeks and keep telling us we need to plan our 'events' out in San Diego around the kids and everything must be kid friendly. Ok, fine. I just wanted to go to Sea World and swim with dolpins...they vetoed that because it's a waste of money. I wanted to go shopping and Jeff wanted to golf at Torrey Pines. Last week BIL tells Jeff they probably won't be golfing at all because it's labor day weekend at the courses are booked. We probably won't be shopping because there is 'not any good shopping out here'. Finally we get ahold of them today after 2 weeks of not returning calls and it turns out SIL got a boob job/tummy tuck this week and will need to rest alot while we are there. ARE YOU FREAKIN KIDDING ME? It's so frusterating. BIL tells us we will only be going to Sea World and then just hanging out at their place. Jeff said we could just rent a car and take a few days to ourself, BIL wasn't keen on that idea because he would have to transport to the car rental place. Etc, etc, etc. There are always excuses. I am so fed up that I spend $750 on tickets and a week of my vacation to spend with them. We used to be soo incredibly close (me and SIL) but we don't talk anymore. San Diego has sadly changed her alot, to someone I don't even recognize. I'm so upset and in tears over all this. UGH! Ok sorry for the vent...I'm just beyond pissed now....
I'm seriously debating about changing tickets to someplace else.
Ok...edit: I don't want to sound like a B**ch. Yes, are going out there to see them but our plans the whole time was to have lots of fun WITH them. They are now saying SIL needs to rest and we just need to hang out at home. That's fine with us, but not for 5 whole days. I wanna see San Diego! I wanna go to a few beaches, maybe the zoo! I am fine with 'kid friendly' activities but now we are looking at no activities and a whiny SIL when/if we do go anywhere because she chose to have a tummy tuck this week. We are looking at rental cars that pick us up, but this isn't what I need. I was hoping for a fun, relaxing, enjoyable break from the craziness of my life...that ain't gonna happen now.
