My son called me several times and begged me to come back. He said he would cook everything and he would fix me a cup of tea and I could relax. He went to the store and got butter and snacks he thought I would like. He said he is getting angry often and going to talk to someone about it. I went back over and me and his wife basically got everything going. We were about 2 hours behind by this point. She is 1st trimester and exhausted and not yet 2 yo dgd wears a person out. But we let her help, then she and I grabbed a nap as did dil. Husband came over with the potatoes peeled. Son was willing to do whatever needed to be done. His entire mood was congenial. He apologized several times as did I. I feel very badly it got so bad so early on. Thanks for the support my pea friends!
We have a Zoom call (which my MIL has been referring to every time as ZOOM) with my inlaws today. I’m annoyed because she has expressed a desire to take a screenshot of the call to use on their Christmas card. I am not a fan of her using group photos and signing them “from the Smith Family” to begin with, but I think the Zoom picture is stupid.
