I need advice. I am trying not to wring my son’s neck. I think I have given him enough good press here that I can rant a bit now. Does the boy have no common sense? All these problems that I’ve been worrying about – and asking him about – for over a year, have just dawned on him now.
I was in his town this weekend and I told him I would bring the van so if there was anything he wanted to send home with me we’d have the room. He said no, he couldn’t think of anything. So I came home with an empty van. Today (two days later!) I get a call from him asking if he could borrow the van this weekend because he needed to move all the stuff from his house there to here to get it packed on the truck Collin is driving up with all their stuff. Wait a minute isn’t that JUST what I asked him about?
The van won’t be here this weekend, Nick is going out of town golfing and he’s taking it. So now he wants us to go down Monday (my one day off) to move him. I don’t mind that, really I don’t. I but since I was just there why couldn’t we do it then?
Now the other thing I’m mad about. LJ wanted a cat, can’t blame him for that I got one when I was in college. But I kept telling him to wait until he got to NYC before getting one. I knew it would be a pain trying to move the cat or cats since Colin has one too. But of course he got one and now – lo and behold – they are having a hard time deciding how to get them there. Plane, Amtrak, bus, Fedex??? It’s going to cost more to get the cats there than the boys. They might be able to go in the cab of the rental truck with Colin and his brother. But will there be room? They can’t go in the back of the truck. To go any other way is going to be a fortune, buying hard carriers, getting them to an airport or Amtrak station will probably fall to Nick and me. Grrrrrrrrr… Why couldn’t he just listen to his mom?
And I’m mostly angry because I can’t yell at him and tell him how dumb he is to have not realized that these were going to need to be addressed before now!!! I don’t want the last few days we have together before he moves filled with me being angry with him. So I’m venting to you guys. Now if any of you have any ideas of how to get 2 cats from NC to NYC please let me know.
