@annapeeps: do you have two seperate cars? that way you both could come back when you want to. my fiance and i sometimes have to do that because of work when we visit my family (2 hours away).

I think I understand what you’re saying here. My SO’s parents live 20 minutes from us, and my parents live about two hours away. Clearly–we see his parents a whole lot more than mine. I don’t mind it, I love his parents, and the distance is a totally logical reason. What I’m not understanding is this–are you not wanting to stay the whole weekend because you want more time with YOUR folks (reasonable)? Or are you wanting to come back a little earlier because you have so much to do (also reasonable)? If it’s the first–what if y’all left a little later on Friday instead of checking out at the break of dawn. OR–if it’s work (and I’m thinking that it is)-is there anything you could take with you? I always take my laptop with me (I’m currently applying to grad school), because I know there will always be downtime where I can get a little work done. A little here and there adds up. Do either of these sound like good compromises? Finding an alternate solution tends to be my MO…have you spoken about it with him?

Fiance doesn’t like to spend much time with my family (though I totally understand, they’re low-dose). I try to get in a couple of solo trips every now and then to get quality Mom & Me time 🙂
