Dear Carolyn: My husband and I will be taking a three-day trip with our two children, which we never do. We asked his sister and her family if they wanted to meet us for the trip. She agreed but now is worried about money. My family wants to stay in a decent hotel, dine out, and enjoy local attractions … nothing extravagant. She prefers to pack sandwiches and wants a cheap motel.
Any advice on ways to enjoy the trip and compromise? We dont want to come across as selfish, but we want to enjoy our vacation. Family
Answer: Youve got to decide, unfortunately, which is your priority - the accommodations or the company. Im not judging either way.
