Is it wrong?

My great aunt will be in my hometown for my brothers graduation. Her brother (my grandfather) recently died and she lives out of state so I would like to spend some extra time with her. I was thinking about going down a day early so I can get some extra time with her, esp since I have a week off. 

Would it be wrong of me to do this? My husband is taking a half day at work so he can drive down and not miss the grad (we originally were going to drive down together).


The original plan was to drive down Friday afternoon and leave Saturday afternoon (i have some errands to run down there in the AM so its not like I'll be spending time with her then).

Ok, because I felt bad because my husband had the understanding that we would drive the 2 hours down there together.

Did you talk to him about wanting to go down early to visit with her before the graduation?

I don't think it's wrong at all to want to spend time with your great-aunt. I do think it would be wrong not to discuss this with your dh and letting him know how what you're thinking of doing before talking to great-aunt about your plans.

I don't see anything wrong with that. I think it's sweet. Just tell your hubby you want to do that. Mine would be fine with it (but I couldn't do it, because I can't drive that far). Or go together, and you could spend some alone time with her, and let your husband chill out and relax! Have fun :)happy

Do it. Who knows how much more time you two have together.

Not wrong at all. A very good idea actually. Your DH should understand.
