I am attempting this because of POF's thread, and not wanting someone I love to feel "squeezed in" and\or forgotten, but with the schedules I am not sure how to do this. So I am asking the ehell mavens if they can see a way to do this.
My Aunt wants to go to the zoo for her birthday. She would want to go to a Fancy restaurant afterward. I would have to drive and push the wheelchair for her. Going would be My Aunt (BG), other aunt (Rosie), Mom ( Anna) and me. The scheduling is the issue. Aunt BG will.not.get.up. early and go at opening, when it is most convenient for the rest of us. Her thought is "It's my birthday I should not have to work around anyone" ( When it's my birthday, graduation or anything else - I have to work around everyone, Mom does the same thing, so does Rosie.)
My Schedule is : Monday I have PT at 3p,Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday and Friday: I have Classes.
Mom's Schedule: Monday work in the afternoon, Tuesday off, Wednesday Art Class, Thursday, Friday: work all day. Sunday Church until 2-2:30 ( zoo closes at 4)
Rosie: Works Tuesday and Thursday all day.
BG's: Tuesday , Thursday, Saturday Classes.
The only time that we have off at the same time is Monday morning and she won't budge on the not getting up to get there at opening ( 10am, we'd have to leave at 9)
Can anyone see any compromise here that work ( other than BG giving in and getting up before she wants to)? Mom is willing to take Monday off work but does not want to be in the city ( where the zoo is) after dark - and we would have to leave the zoo at about 3 to be able to go get dressed appropriately, go get dinner and leave before dark in the place she is requesting http://www.mikealafayette.com/
dinner there is a slow, luxurious affair that leaves you feeling very pampered. 2 hours at least.
