We are going to be gone on a working vacation for two weeks before Easter and not returning home until the day before the holiday. After all of that time in the car, I know we are going to need to de-stress and I don't want to go to my MIL's house for Easter (spending time with that family is very stressful). We stayed home for Christmas - but only because she (MIL) invited herself to our house and then changed her mind. She thinks I'm unreasonable because I don't want to go to her house for Easter as well. Oh, and she doesn't just want us to come, she was expecting us to provide a large portion of the dinner (which is why I think she's really upset, not that I don't want to be there). I won't have time to cook and I don't think it's right to cut our vacation short so I can come home and make a dinner for her family. Am I being unreasonable?
