I posted the email from BM2 - she is excited we are taking the kids to Disney, and is working with MIL to get SD2 to her house, so MIL can take them to the airport. MIL is doing this as a FAVOR to the BMs so the kids are together from check-in to getting on the plane, and because she knows they both work
BM2 lives about 2 hours from MIL. She is bringing SD2 to MIL's house. BM1 lives about 45 minutes the other direction, and goes past MIL's town to get to work in Des Moines. Apparently she gets to work at 5:30 am - she refused to drop SS off on her way. MIL suggested meeting at 7 am just outside of DSM, because she doesn't want to deal with traffic, and BM1 said "DH said you would come to DSM to get him!" So MIL said she would, but it wouldn't be until after 8, when rush hour was over. Now all of a sudden meeting at 7 is fine.
I looked at DH when he told me that and said "She doesn't want him being a pain in the @ss at her office once her bosses come in!" He said he was thinking the same thing. I told him he should tell her that her other option is to bring SS to the airport herself at 11:30, which she won't do.
No matter how much we try, she won't bend. Oh, and we just got her end of the year memo on her health insurance costs - this time it's $1.73 a month increase. I'll get right on that.
