My MIL and SIL told us repeatedly that they will be here on the 30th. That's tomorrow. My husband and I arranged time off work so that we can make sure the house is perfect before they arrive and that we are there when they get here. I took a chicken out of the freezer on Sunday to start thawing (takes 2-3 days. Big chicken) because I am going to make a big roast chicken supper the night they arrive, and salmon the next day. I like to cook. Even have plans for eggs Benedict and crèpes with local berries this weekend.
Well, my husband called his mom yesterday and it turns out they aren't leaving until today. A day after they said. They are doing the trip over three days (4hrs of driving per day) just to enjoy it. They didn't leave on time because my SIL wanted to party with her ex and can't drive. Keep in mind, the woman is 46.
They won't be here until Thursday. Meanwhile, my husband and I have time off tomorrow and a chicken that I can't cook for suppertime on a weekday without time off in the afternoon (takes 3 hours to roast) and we are annoyed. It is incredibly rude to hold up three peoples' lives because you want to party.
My husband is livid. I've rarely seen him mad like this, but he is. His sister invited herself - originally for three weeks, until we put the kibosh on that - and did not even bother asking us. She just told people she was coming down. I suppose every family has someone like that.
Very, very annoyed. Going to ask my boss if I can take Thursday afternoon instead, which might not be doable.
