Uh uh…

No way…

Not gotta happen…

Don’t even think about it!

I’ve had to say that before when other folks wanted to join a planned vacation and, while I felt bad for it, it simply had to be done.

Because no one is ruining my vacation!

And it sounds like this woman and I are on the same page as far as that goes.

Read her story below and see if you think she was out of line.

AITA for not wanting to spend the entire vacation sun up to sun down with my husband’s family?

“My husband and I were planning a vacation for us and our 2 kids. We’ll be gone for 8 days in the summer. We’ve saved for this trip for years and were super excited.

She wants some quality family time…

This place is about 3 hours away from my husband’s family. They invited us to spend some days with them. However, from the start I said I wanted alone time with just the 4 of us.

With the kids getting older, we don’t get a lot of time with them. We don’t have the money to travel often. I suggested 3-4 days with his family, then we’d go to the actual vacation spot. I also set the boundary we’d stay in a hotel. They all seemed to agree.

Then it happened…

Then out of nowhere, my husband’s family decided to go to our vacation spot for the full 8 days.

That’s when the hints began that we all get a house to rent. I said no.

I love my husband’s family but it’d just be too much and I wanted time for just us. We don’t need to be around each other 24/7. After that, my SIL started making plans for all 8 days that included us.

I put my foot down to my husband and said no.

We could spend 4 days with his family, maybe 5. But I wanted just a few just us.

We never get to go on vacation. And his family visits once or twice a year so it’s not like we don’t see them.

Her husband isn’t too happy about this…

My husband says I’ve hurt his family’s feelings.

When I spoke to my SIL she said I should understand why it hurts I won’t spend the entire time with them.

I asked how they’d feel if they planned a trip and we tried to change the plan.

She said family does this stuff for each other.

Now, I’m already dreading the trip and wonder if I’m being over dramatic and should just give in to avoid drama.
