- Wedding: May 2010
This weekend is my cousin-in-law’s high school graduation. Husband & I can’t go to the graduation itself (due to no ticket availablity) & we’d just go to the graduation party. Its 5 or 6 hours 1 way & we’d leave Sat & come back Sun afternoon, thats a 10-12 hour round trip car ride within 24 hours. We just got back last Sund from our honeymoon & we drove 12 hours straight to get home (did it in 1 day, just a few short stops along the way).
The cousin missed his senior prom to go to our wedding 2 weeks ago. All the family up there wants to see us. We’d like to see them. We can ride up to the party with my parents in law, so it won’t cost us anything to go. HS graduation is important, but to me, HS isn’t as big of an event as it is to most other people.
The house is a crazy disaster & this weekend would be perfect to go thru things & its good weather & we can relax & visit friends. I’ve had an absolutely crazy week at work because the office was closed since I was gone & nothing was done that was supposed to be done at work. I’ve had a stressful week & want to relax. If we go to the grad party, I won’t have time to relax at all. Everyone will be asking us about the wedding & honeymoon & that’s nice, but I kinda don’t want to be asked all those questions. Then, we’ll come home & I’ll have to go to work on Monday & no break for me. Husband has had friends over a few times this week & we haven’t had much alone time. There’s pros & cons & we can’t decide. Husband thinks we’ll regret not going to the grad party. We’re talking about it when I’m off work (on work break now).
Edit: I should say that my entire new family-in-law will be there. Everyone lives in that area except for my husband & his parents. They are awesome, we like being around them, they’re all nice & welcomed me right into the family. We only get to see them 1 or 2 times a year (holidays) because of the distance. Husband loves visiting them, they all were so generous at the wedding. I know husband may get slack about not going because we told everyone we were going (this is before we found out we can’t go to the actual graduation).
