After two days my son called me today and apologized for the other night. He's coming over, primarily because he's expecting a check in the mail that could be here any day, but also presumably to discuss Thanksgiving. I had tested the waters last night by texting him to see if he still planned to be here. No response at that time. He did come by yesterday to pick up his suitcase which the airline had shipped to my house. He was civil but distant, and i wasn't much warmer. I wanted to hug him tight but didn't feel he would be receptive, so I held my peace. I'm a little anxious about how this meeting will go. I felt like telling him he couldn't come until this evening because I had to work (which I do) but since my work schedule is strictly my choice I also felt that this might be more important than a few extra dollars. I just don't know what to expect or what his motives are, aside from getting his expected check. At this point it could go any number of different ways because emotions are still a little raw on all sides.
