Well, my in-laws are having a bit of a problem.
May of my Dad in Laws family is down in the NY/NJ/PA area and they want to come to the wake and funeral. Problem is they are too old to drive up here and their kids went from saying "sure I can take you up any time you want to" to " I can't go right now".
I am sorry folks, but I took a day off of work when my aunt died so I could drive my Mom up to the funeral. There wasn't even a second thought - I asked if she wanted to go, she said yes, the next day we were on our way. They are family, that is what you do.
I have to say I don't really want to deal with a house full of people right now but I think it is ridiculous that these kids are so self centered that they can't make time to take their parents up to the wake and funeral of their uncle.
May I never become that self centered. . . .
