My uncle's funeral in another state, 6 hour drive from here. I have the bereavement leave, but would need to take little rose. My mom, and two brothers are going - no spouses or other kids. I'm as close to him as any of my mother's family, which means we see each other at weddings, baptisms, and funerals. I send him cards every year. However, this is my only uncle, and her only sibling.

It's over a weekend - leave Friday, return Sunday. Dh gets the older two kids for the time. I don't have to go, M has queen stuff that I'm supposed to work. If I stay, I can do that and go check in on my father over the weekend.

I'm trying to decide what to do.

What would you?

I wouldn't go.
Maybe Im rotten or whatever, but I feel the living are more important than the deceased.
You weren't that close anyway and the way it sounded from your mom you are not expected or wanted to go.

I would probably go. It really sounds like you not going would be another strike "against" you. Plus, both of your brothers will be there too.

That's tough. If its going to weigh heavy on your conscience, I'd go. If it won't, I'd probably just stay home. It's the fact that you have to take the baby along that's making me lean sort of toward no.
I guess I'll vote no.
I'm sorry about your uncle, Dee!

Thanks Rae. I'm so torn. I want to go, but hate leaving DH with the family weekend stuff too. Of all the kids to take, little rose is the easiest.

Dee I kind of get the felling you're going to regret it If you don't go.
If you think you want to go you probably should.
