“Ladies, I need some advice. I am a widow with two daughters.
My daughters are not terribly close in age and although the three of us live in the same house, my oldest leads a completely independent life. She graduated from college several years ago, works full-time and lives in our basement apartment.
My youngest is headed off to college this fall. For her high school graduation, my youngest wanted to take a cruise to Cuba which we booked but later had to cancel. My oldest was very upset that she was not invited… now she wants to be more involved.
We are planning to take a 9-day cruise next summer and my youngest told me she would prefer that her sister stay home. I honestly do not know what to do. Help! Has any one ever faced a similar situation and how did you handle? Thanks.”
