Potential fight over dinner (of all things)

October 25th, 2006 at 07:11 pm

Talked with FIL last night about the craigslist thing, he is all for it. I also talked to him about depositing PayPal money into his acct. to pay the bank this time. Just trying to get it paid as quickly as possible. He said it was fine. He said that DH had already talked with him about that. Hummm... then he said that he talked with DH about holding back money for the TG holiday. We are having a lot of family in town and I guess everybody is going to go to a nice place to eat at some point during that time. He suggested that DH save back around $100 for the dinner so no one would have to worry about paying for us. Sigh... that's a lot of money right now. DH told me nothing about it. I'm sure he just forgot to, he does often. At any rate, I don't know if we can swing it. I am going to go over the budget for next month again and see where we will sit with it. I hate to tell DH no, as it is with family that he has not seen in quite awhile. The only way that I see it remotely happening at this point is to just let him go and me stay at home with the kids. I will gladly do it for him, but I know that there is probably going to be a little tiff about the whole thing. I am not looking forward to it.

    I hope it all works out for you. It's hard to know what to do in situations like this when it involves family.

    Can you find out what time they are eating and show up 10-15 minutes later and enjoy a coffee with them??? Tell FIL or someone so they don't wait on you to eat.
