Ok so you all know that my parents and I are not really speaking and that things are really tense between them, us, and difficult child right now. Basically we are attending the end of the Senior year events (prom and graduation) so that we wont regret having missed them and so that difficult child can't hold it against us that we didn't show up. My parents are trying to get us to spend time with them during the events but I honestly am not interested. We have booked a hotel room for graduation night and don't intend to spend any time with them. Personally if I don't have to I don't even want to sit by them I would rather enjoy the night without stress or the possibility of a fight. I spent less than 15 minutes with them on prom night and mom threw out her usual "I am such a horrible mother" accompanied by tears none the less. I just told her to cut it out, ignored her, and then went on my merry way. Seriously! You have my kid and have no problem supporting her hatred of me and you want my sympathy? During that 15 minutes she also mentioned another family vacation that my brother was supposedly planning. We are due to move soon so funds are tight plus I can't imagine three days in a cabin in the woods with them being enjoyable. On the other hand I do miss my brother and we are moving to the other side of the country. It is also one of the last times we will get to spend time with difficult child until Christmas. So I am waffling just a little....... It's important for easy child to have contact and time with all of them regardless of my issues. Would it be wrong for me to have husband and I stay in a seperate place for down time?
