See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My friend just past away on January 30th. Her and I were the same age and grew up together, our mothers are best friends since high school. My mother and I planned a trip to go from PA to upper New York for the view and funeral. Well my husband has gotten quiet "How could you take my son away." "why would you want to leave me and take our son" "Cant you go up for the funeral and come back". I am so close to beating the living tare out of my husband it isnt funny. This woman has been my friend for the past 20 years!!! I am not just going to show up for her funeral and then come back. I mean it is an 8 hour freaking drive to just go for a few hours and then return! I am struggling to understand why he is being such....a mother lovin' bastard! I am going to my friends funeral and viewing, I'm leaving Wednesday and coming home Saturday. I feel that he is trying to minipulate me some how into not giving my friend and her family the time of day...The time for me to be able to say goodbye and heal this hole in my heart. So here is the jissed:
1. There is no one to watch our son here if I leave him here.
2. My husband cant take off work to go with us.
So I went to my friends funeral. My husband absuletly hated it. I on the other hand hated being back in my home town (personal reasons) but being able to say goodbye made me feel better.
