Nichole's reception is next sat. I think I mentioned that 1. Nichole did not want M there period and 2. I was not driving Katie's family. (might have left 2 off......can't remember) Normally driving them isn't an issue as it's one of us and all of them. So they sort of fit if they squish right. But for the wedding reception......it's not only going to be husband and I, but Travis as well. There is no way we're going to fit 4 more people in the car. M has to work glory be! And I'm not squishing anyone as we're going to be dressed up it's a WEDDING reception. ugh So I asked her tonight if M could watch the kids. Nichole has asked katie twice and received no answer. This is how I know he has to work. Well, that means the kids would have to go. Which is bad as far as transportation.........and also not so great as in truth it's going to be boring as all get out for children and it's set to last until 11pm. Everyone already knows Nana and Papa are Aubrey's safety valve, soon as she starts getting tired we wisk her away to our house to sleep on the couch in her piglet sleeping bag. We could do two trips. But honestly? I don't want to. Katie's kids are doing much better, but I'd rather not test it in a wedding setting. easy child has a sitter for her boys. Aubrey is only going because all her sitters will be there. It's in no way a kid's setting. It's a fairly expensive restaurant and there will be an open bar. I told Katie since we're transporting Travis.....there is no way we can fit them. I asked her if she could take the cab. Now in other places, cabs are expensive. Here? No. Five bucks will take you anywhere (literally) in town. She writes back that the cab cuts off at 5pm. Uh, no. Maybe on a weekday but not on a sat. All the drunks use them, big money night, they'd be stupid to do that. And I know Travis has used them more than once. Service is until 11pm on sat if I remember right. Now, c'mon. The girl is not broke. She can afford 10 bucks for her own transportation. If she can't, and the cab doesn't run.........Then I suppose she can miss it. I'd like her to go, but dang it to heck, I don't want to wrestle 3 kids when I'm dressed to the nines........I'm uncomfortable enough TVM. I know soon as she finds out easy child has a sitter she's going to ask why Travis can't ride with her and sister in law......Except it's an open bar. easy child has already said she may make use of it since she does have a sitter, sister in law might as well. We've already agreed to handle Aubrey. So? Who would get stuck taking katie and her kids home when they fall apart due to being tired or boredome? Us. No. Gas is 4.15 a gallon. And I'm betting she's wondering why I'm not saying we'll just take two cars. But omg gas is 4.15 a gallon!! No. My youngest child is going to be celebrating her marriage. I don't want to have to worry about katie and her kids that night. I want to attempt to enjoy it myself. And heck, I may make use of that open bar. lol 10 bucks for a cab or stay home. Katie says M is working 6 days a week for the next month. (I'm finding that more than a bit hard to believe) If he was able to watch the kids, I'd just take her with us and drop her off on our way home no sweat. Am I being unreasonable? Asking because it seems I've ticked the girl off.
