I’m planning a surprise trip for my FI back to California for his birthday in January. I’ve looked into dates and flights and all that, and I emailed his mom on the 7th about if the dates work for her. It’s now the 10th, and I haven’t heard back from her. At what point is it acceptable for me to email her again to see if she got my email, and if the dates work for her? I don’t want to bother her, but I really need to know these dates before the prices go up! Is waiting till tomorrow, which will have been 4 days for her to respond about my dates, be an acceptable time limit? I really don’t want her to feel like I’m harrasing her!

Are you visiting her, staying with her, traveling with her? I would give it a couple of days at least. If she needs to take time off from work (if she isn’t retired) it may take a few days to get it straightened out.

E-mails aren’t everyone’s primary form of communication, neither is texting, pick up the phone and call her.

Email is the only way we’ve ever communicated. I’ve never actually met her, due to issues with my SO going home, so this is the only way I’ve ever talkd to her. It’s a little wierd to me to call her, but I guess I could. I just have to sneak her phone number from my FI’s phone.
We’re going to visit her, and we’re staying with her. That’s why I’m trying to get a hold of her.

Definitely call her—- now if she doesn’t pick up nor returns your call, then you may have something to worry about.
