husband told her we got difficult child's school pics. Asked me to get them for her (father in law had dropped off some stuff at our house - she was in the truck and didn't get out). So I reluctantly went to get them. She opened the door to the truck when I got out there and said "I just thought it was time to get a new picture of easy child 2." Grrr. I almost walked away. easy child's last pics were in April. difficult child's last pics were last July. *** easy child 2 has tutoring tonight. Since mother in law didn't feel the need to talk to anyone about picking easy child up from the bus and driving her to mom's, I didn't feel the need to tell her easy child wouldn't be on the bus tonight. Let her waste her gas driving over and waiting around. *** But she did do something nice. She called and told me I could have the apples that were left on her apple tree, if I want to come pick them. *** Hey. Its a start.
