Members seniorslave Posted January 3, 2014 Members Report Share Posted January 3, 2014 we just went through our 2nd batch of Holidays since the death of our 19 year old son. It was worse that the first. Myself, husband son/daughter in law and grandchild (9months) have decided that we no longer want to do the family gatherings starting from Thanksgiving. We have the idea that we could not do gifts and take a trip every year. How do we handle this with our extended families without offending them. We tried having the gatherings at our house (disaster) we couldn't wait for it to be over and we tried having it at families house (disaster) wanted to leave as soon as we got there. It is hard to make others understand how we feel and wonder if anyone has any advice. Also we would like advice on where to go. We are in Colorado and want someplace warm near water and activities that we could return to each year. Thank you for your comments. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
