There is a grand plan being hatched here. The mother-in-law is planning a trip in the indeterminate future to spread her mother’s ashes in Arizona. On the guestlist for this trip are the mother-in-law, her sister, her two daughters, and a cousin. Missing from the guestlist? My husband. Yep, he gave them a place to live and supported them financially for the last two years. His sisters never even visited when their grandmother was sick. It is just further proof in my mind that the mother-in-law is evil.
He isn’t bothered by this. He said no male relatives were being invited and he wouldn’t go even if they invited him. But I think it is a total slap in the face. The thing that tops it all is that his younger sister doesn’t have a job and neither does his mother. What do you want to bet that they expect him to pay for their trip?
Wow. Not that I would WANT to go to something like that, but I would at least want an “invitation”, even if it is just because it seems like the right thing to do, not because they really want me there.
I have to agree with your hubby on this one. It is the trip from hell.
Contribute to the expenses, and decline the ride!
