I am going to a memorial at the end of this month. It is for my father. He passed last year but my Mom has decided that he needs a memorial on the day he passed a year later.
Well my Mom is planning all these activities like Disneyland while we are there, but she insists she is paying for the tickets. So I guess that is OK.
But she is also complaining about how much the memorial costs. Asking me what she should do. I'd offer to help but she says how all these people offer and she turns them down. She turns them down out of the fact they want to be thanked, so appearantly my mom wants the credit for the whole thing.
I also can't afford to help her at this time. My mini van needs to get the electric window fixed, the hatch back, check the door latches that have been sticking lately and general maintenance. We've been waiting months to get this done.
I am also going to hear about how my older sister bought some flowers for my father. But I simply can't afford the huge arrangment that they expect.
So I am thinking of turning down the offer to Disneyland and just hanging out until I have to be at the airport.
Plus my Mom's birthday is the day after I return home. So there is another, I hate to put it this way, but expense.
What should I do. I already have non-refundable airline tickets.
