My father and SM are coming out for the holidays. The last time they came here was fine, but I did have irritation, as usual. The difference is the last time was the first time my father acknowledged his irritation with her too.
Biggest issue: everything centered around her schedule, and we were expected to drive her, etc.
I guess my question is how to tactfully separate myself from her needs without seeming like a _________. The tendency is for her to whine, moan, complain about how she's going to get something accomplished, so that someone will step in and solve it for her. Then she never says thank you.
I know the easy answer is "don't rescue her"... but somehow when I let her fall on her face it looks like I tripped her.
I feel a bit like Thurmann... I'm dreading it already and it's not for 3 months...
