A.Balaban Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 I was supposed to go up on Sat. to get my DS from his dad's. Due to me, and DD being sick, I couldn't make the trip (We ended up in ER last night with DD). My mom wanted to meet me halfway yesterday, but w/ DD being sick & I have a quiz Mon that I need to study for (and class Mon night). So I said, I would drive up the six hours with DD on Tues AM after she saw the Dr. on Mon. WELL.... DH car is dead, and we can't afford to fix it. He can't go to work on Mon cause we need to take DD to the Pedi and he has been taking my car, so we can't afford for him to take any more time off work. Fri he doesn't work at his second job, so we planned Sat I could drive up like I planned for this last weekend. Well, my mom said Friday she could drive halfway down and I could pick him up from her. I can't drive all the way up on Fri cause I have an early AM class Saturday that I can't miss. She called me back and said Fri doesn't work out because she's playing tennis - after she harassed me about making sure I got out of the house "early" because she had to be back at a certain time. I asked DS's BD if he could drive him home Sunday or meet me halfway and he said "I don't think I can do that." :001_huh: I can't drive all the way up on Sunday because I have class Monday! (and my mom is working that day...) I am SOOOOOO cranky - DS has been refusing to talk to me on the phone for days, and I miss him so much! I just want things to work out so he can come home. And Monday DH needs the car again sooooo it really has to work out for this weekend......or else when will I see my baby again!?! DH and I are also planning an IKEA trip... on whatever day that he has off next weekend. IKEA is almost two hours away so that is a journey by itself........I am hoping SOMETHING works out. My car still needs work, and I'm fearing now that DH's car is officially dead that my car will go kaput (what about with travel?!!) DS's BD and I agreed we would share responsibilities with driving - so it is my turn to go up and get him - but with this ^ STUFF ^ it is so difficult! I am literally freaking out! WWYD? I am thinking a rental car may be the best choice. I think I should be able to make this work out: Thurs 10a - Fri 10a - Midsize car rental: $60 Fri 10a - Sat 10a - Large Pick up truck rental - $90 We'll save $60 on our IKEA trip delivery (quoted at $150) and we'll "spend" our savings on the car rental to pick up DS. That way it all evens out and I don't end up spending any more money than I intended to spend (on the IKEA delivery) and I get my son back.... aaaaaaaaah! Now that I think I have it worked out, I'm impatient and tempted to surprise everyone by showing up TUESDAY!!!!!! LOL Now I wanna go ask DH what he thinks...... :cheers2: Back to studying for that quiz.... I feel a lot better though, now!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
