Last week I posted about not knowing what to do in regard to BM who hadn't talked to SKs in 6 weeks. DH tried contacting her at the end of last week with no luck. SD finally asked about her mom on Friday and DH let her know that he was trying to get in touch with her. DH continued again over the weekend. Still no reply (via email; her phone is disconnected).
SKs lawyer called DH on Saturday. She was supposed to meet with SKs that day. At the beginning of January, DH and BM made plans to meet (almost halfway between us; 6 hours for us...4 hours for her) to drop the kids off with her on Friday, Feb. 8th and pick them up on the 10th. Over the weekend, the kids were supposed to be meeting with their lawyer. BM was supposed to talk to the lawyer and set up alternate plans because DH and BM worked out a different plan a few days after the first plan was made. DH realized that SKs have a week-long break next week so, a month ago, DH asked BM if she would like to have the kids visit for a week instead of just a weekend...and they could meet with their lawyer sometime during that week. Well, apparently BM didn't get in touch with the kids' lawyer to change the appt. date so the lawyer was stood up on Saturday. The kids' lawyer said she had been in touch with BM's lawyer and even BM's lawyer can't get in touch with her.
What do we do now? We're four days away from making a 6 hour trip (each way) to drop off the kids but we haven't heard from BM at all. BM wasn't the best at communicating over the holidays either (as usual) and we ended up driving a couple of hours to pick up the kids before finding out that she wasn't able to meet us that day and could meet a few days later. Ugh. She's so irresponsible. It drives us crazy!
I'm considering asking DH to try contacting BM's mom or sister through FB (he has had to do that to try and get in touch with her before) so we can confirm plans for this weekend. He will probably do that. I'm just slightly annoyed with him. We always communicate quite well and agree with how to deal with most everything. But I think that he's fed up and doesn't want to keep trying to contact her when he's getting nowhere with it. I just want to know what's going on. It would also ease my SD's mind to know what's going on as well, I'm sure. SS doesn't care. He doesn't even want to go (and he doesn't have to go, it's up to him...but since he was supposed to meet with the lawyer, he wasn't going to have a choice this time).
Oh, and the lawyer is not going to be around to meet up with SKs next week so the whole purpose of us sending the kids to visit with BM at that time is no longer for a dual purpose. We're going to have to get them there another time to meet with the lawyer. Hmm...maybe that's why DH isn't very concerned with getting the kids there for the week-long break. I'm going to ask him tonight.
