My BFF and I have been talking about going to the sand dunes for the weekend for the longest time. We finally found a time that worked for all of us so were going to borrow the In Laws RV and go to the Sand Dunes for the weekend and ride ATV's. Bff lives 4 hours south of me so we are meeting in the middle. I found a company that rents RV's and sets them up for you at the RV park of your choice so they are going to do that so our RV's will be right next to each other.
We have also invited Dh's cousin and his wife whose company I thoroughly enjoy. They always pitch in, clean up, share food and help around camp. Dh invited another one of his friends whom I am not to happy about because this guy is pretty much moocher. Claiming that he dosent have enough money because he dosent make alot of money but he DOES work full time. So DH told Me he invited him and my response was well he needs to pay his share. Dh said that he didnt feel right charging him because he got him some tires at a discount for a bike that dh has been building for 300.00 when they are normally 400.00. I told Dh that he needs to pitch in at least 50.00. Dh mentioned that when they spoke he said so whats the deal just pitch in for food right and Dh say yeah thats fine.
Its going to cost each person 80 to 113 dollars depending on how we work the food out but the gas and the spot for the RV will come to 419.00 for the weekend divided 5 comes to 83.80 each. Not a bad price for a weekend jaunt if you ask me. We saw this guy at a party Saturday night and he asks if he could invite his friend Maria (whom they are just friends) Dh says Sure! I shoot DH a nasty look and am thinking cant we just talk about this first. Who the hell is Maria? Well its already out there so I tell DH friend that Maria has to pay her way. He says sure no problem. I guess my pet peeve is this guy most likely wont pay his share then he invites someone else whom most of us have never met before. This is going to be an intimate situation as it is.
Another problem I have is I always end up doing all the work, menu, shopping, cooking, cleaning etc. We will have to return the RV clean from head to toe before we return it out of our courtesy with a full tank of gas. Who do you think will do that? Unless I delegate some cleaning chores before we pull out of the RV spot before heading home. So I have an issue of people not paying their share and then cooking and cleaning after them. This is supposed to be a vacation, no kids, no dogs and Im already feeling resentful.
I need to talk to Dh tonight and tell him how I am feeling.
So am I being to uptight, what would you do?
