It is so hard to set up new rules when you have no idea where you guys are heading (ie D or R).
You no longer live at the house or are you still there?
I guess you need to look at it as you are setting a precedent for everything going forth. Meaning, if I ran into a conflict between a new landscaper and my IC....then something would had to been rescheduled. HOWEVER, I knew my M was over so there was no help there.
There is nothing wrong with being accommodating as long as it goes both ways. There is a difference between playing nice in the sandbox and her expecting you to do everything around her world.
Meaning...would you ever ask her to stop at the store for you in route?
