My in laws and relatives live 10 minutes away. My husband and I both work. But, on the weekends, it becomes a forceful choice to spend most of the time with in laws, bil,sil etc. If we have a genuine reason, its OK otherwise they guilt us. usually, I make up a story if we dont want to go. But, sometimes, I feel bad making up these stories tooo but then, we dont have a choice.. I wish I could say what I feel sometimes. do you feel that way too -?
