Dear Annie: After my bitter divorce, my son decided to live with his father in another state. I have spent thousands of dollars on airplane tickets, hotels, car rentals and restaurants. I have never forgotten my two grandchildren’s birthdays.

Recently, to save money, I traveled alone and stayed with my son for four days. After traveling 1,000 miles, I spent two hours in a shuttle because my son did not pick me up at the airport as promised. When I arrived at their house, there was nothing to eat. I had to ask my son to make something, as I do not feel comfortable in their kitchen. My grandson gave up his bed for me, and the room was a mess. His bathroom sink and tub were clogged, and my daughter-in-law expected me to clean them. I also had to ask for fresh towels.
