Jean in Newcastle Posted July 11, 2008 Share Posted July 11, 2008 My sister, myself and my two kids are going to drive 6 hours to visit my eldest brother and his family. I really enjoy visiting them. But for a couple of reasons (I have fibromyalgia and therefore have a very difficult time sleeping, both my kids talk and walk in their sleep, and I just like privacy for the whole bedtime routine) I really want to stay at a hotel that is just down the road from their house. My sister also said that she'd like to stay at the hotel because she has insomnia too. Trouble is, when I mentioned that to my sister-in-law she insisted that we stay in their guest room (a garage that has been remodeled as an extra room.) They have a twin bed and some air mattresses. In the past this has never been an issue because at times like Thanksgiving etc. they already had a full house. I tried to graciously back out (citing my difficulty sleeping) but she kept insisting. I ended the conversation without committing either way. So now what do I do? Do I give in and stay there (2 nights) even though I really don't want to and I know will have a harder time physically? Do I insist on the hotel and risk offending my sister in law? We've always had a good relationship but then she's never been so adamant about something like this before!
