Am I mean??
Well, she called me Friday and asked where were we going. I told her that I asked everyone where they wanted to go and most are saying Vegas. I also have a GREAT rate to go. She said well how about we go to Panama City. At first, I responded what the hell is in Panama City. Believe me, I dont have anything against the area but where did that suggestion come from. Panama City from Vegas?? You know that doesnt make sense. Then she explained. She said that her mom lived in Panama City and her mom could cook for us. That's sweet and all but if I want to get away why would I want to go to her Mom's house. Not only that, no one knows her mom. Then I realized that its just a hop skip and a jump from her house. I didnt say nothing because I didnt want to hurt her feelings but REALLY why the heck do I want to go to visit her Mom. Ummm, I got a free pass to get out while the kids and my husband have some rebonding time after a year deployment. I am taking up on the offer. Plus I am going to have a weekend spent with massages, wine, and sightseeing.
My problem is how do I tell her thanks but no thanks. I dont want to hurt her feelings. Dont let me forget that she snuck in there that she is using her money for her family trip not a girls weekend. Which I understand. But if you really want to go, you have to be able to work with EVERYONE not just what is acceptable for you. People are traveling from all over; east west and the south. We are spitting 360 between 6 people for the hotel. Its a condo rental with kitchen. So we dont have to spend money on going out to eat much if we dont want to. All you have to worry about is the airfare. You cant beat that with a stick.
Am I being unreasonable?
